Weird, our groomer takes some of them off and they do grow back. I can't imagine cutting them off though except for show dogs. I love his whiskers!

Note to self, don't set cake full of burning candles where the dogs can sniff them

Anyone else ever have a dog get too close to a candle(s)?
Gosh, I hope she got her wish

There's no need to trim them- unless you either show the dog or just like them better without them. But if you want to leave them, by all means do!

I just think they're prickly and not attractive, so I trim 'em.
