“Go beard or go home.” — The Bearded Collie
Depending on your facial hair preferences, your ability to channel your inner Viking, or perhaps even the amount of money you have set aside for debatable necessities like razors, the trending month-long holiday “No Shave November” (or Noshember, if you’re feeling hip) is either a blessing or a curse, no matter who you are.
Fortunately, unlike their human caretakers, animals don’t have to worry about whether or not to indulge in the aesthetic implications of this month’s homage to all things hairy. They’re blessed with rockin’ facial hair naturally.
No Shave November is in full swing now, and while we’ve already shared a few well-known fluffballs who know how to embrace their luxurious locks, we all know what Noshember is really about: the beard and mustache. In honor of beardage and facial hair glory, here is a splendid gallery of envy-worthy pet beards from across the internet.

This Bergamasco whose neat beard coordinates nicely with his coat.
This cat and his mustache both think you should try harder.

This cat with a grandpa mustache will tell you awesome fishing stories, sonny.

Bonus: A Highland Cow who is straight out of a 90’s garage band. No facial hair needed. Dude.
