His Nose is so Short!

Muffit Look at this short nose! Okay okay.. I know, with five collies in the house right now, many dog noses look short to me. But Chase’s doesn’t look short to me anymore. Isn’t Muffit’s nose exceptionally short?

Well I kinda think so. 🙂 Not that that is a bad thing… I love his nose I think he is very super cute and I wouldn’t want his nose any longer than it is.

And I love the coloring on his face, too. His black head and his white chin and body. Muffit is such a sweet cute boy. I think his cuteness was his downfall.. people adopted him too fast, and then didn’t keep him. Well, he’s with us now and it’s his last stop.

  1. Okay, it’s a bit on the short side, but it’s still a perfect little nose 🙂

  4. Hi Julie, it is a perfect nose! I love Muffit’s nose, one of my favorite things about him.

    I look forward to seeing the pictures of your past fur kids. 🙂

  6. I know what it is. In the show collies, the angle of the snout, the stop (area between the eyes) and the forehead are brought into line so they merge, forming a continuous plane from the nostrils to the ears.

    This exaggerates the perceived length of all three.

    Just look at that SmoothCollies.net logo —>

    In older Collies, or in current Collies like the English Shepherd or the Border Collie or even the Australian Shepherd, the forehead, the stop, and the snout are all distinct planes, often at very different angles to each other.

    Muffit has three distinct planes, although his stop is certainly longer and more angled than you’d expect from a Border Collie, you can see it extending from the forehead to the center of the snout.

    It’s not that his nose is short, it’s that it doesn’t align the same way with the stop and the forehead.
