    Hi everyone, is the Silkie in my avatar bearded or non bearded? I should know, but I can't tell! BTW she's not my silkie.... until tomorrow.

    Thanks!

    I say bearded as well.

    Here is my non-bearded Silkie (I don't have him anymore, or the bearded one):

    Bearded (not the greatest, but you get an idea):
