HNT 2.2 - Chinese Crested Celti?

I've always been a bit intrigued by these dogs:

The Chinese Crested Hairless. They're funny little dogs, and they look a lot like little horses when groomed in this manner. I would imagine, however, that they wouldn't like the winters here in these parts. I can just about see it shivering now. It's interesting that they have hair only on their feet and heads (hmmm...part hobbit? lol).

I think my fascination with them is party because I am a lot like them - I am practically hairless except for my head and ...well, not my feet. heh

I tried to capture my arm with a dark background so you can see that there's pretty much no hair. There is some, but it is so fine and so few that you really can't see them. My legs are the same way, so I VERY rarely have to shave. Yeah, I know...lucky girl. I never have to tweeze my eyebrows as they are very fine and thin, and the hair I do have is all very soft and fine.

I've always thought it a bit peculiar, but I have to say that I'm quite happy about it. You can stick tape to me and I won't scream when you rip it off. lol

By the way, today is Candlemas (also known as Imbolic). Please light a candle tonight to banish darkness and herald the coming of Spring and with it, better things. You can read more about Imbolc/Candlemas on the Celtic Spirit website. A big thank you goes out to Inanna for the reminder and the link.


  1. Happy HNT!
    I'm not very hairy either. Thank goodness. My girlfriend is Italian and what she doesn't wax, she shaves and plucks. It's an on-going hair battle. She said when she goes in for her first bikini wax of the summer they can hear her screams in Singapore.

    Scary thought that.

  2. Mah, whut a sexah forah-ahm! Oooooooh, momma!

    Ok Johnny Bravo moment over...I'm biding my time before getting called into a courtroom at 2pm local time.

    COOL WATCH! :)

    Happy HNT!

  3. did I read that right? you have hair on your feet? on top or on the bottems? ;)

  4. Tricia - I feel sorry for the gals who are. What a pain that must be (ba dun dum). lol

    Spc - wah, thankyouverymuch. lol
    Thanks! It was a Christmas gift. Happy HNT to you, too. :)

    Denny - HELL NO! I said NOT on my feet. I was referring to my nether regions if you must know. lol

    Brighton - just the dog, not me!! lol

  5. So, just like the dog, you have hair on your BUTT?!!

  6. Cootera - NO, dag nabbit! ...and my ears aren't that damn big, either! lol

  7. Sam, the former ugliest dog alive was a crested, but he wasn't nearly as purty as that one.

  8. You are a Celtic dream come true. Wit, wisdom, beauty, humor.

    All of the things that charm and enchant.

  9. Those Chinese bred some pretty freaky stuff.

  10. I'm not very hairy either, except for my head where it belongs!

    Just for the record, I don't have hairy feet either!


  11. Jamie - :D

    Nanner - I knew someone would bring him up. I think he had some genetic mutations, though. lol

    Visitor - wow, I'm flattered. Thank you. *blush*

    Sylvana - indeed!

    Coyote Mike - hope yours was nice.

    Se7en - that's nice to know. heh
    So, you're not part hobbit, eh? lol

  12. I appreciate the time you have taken to keep your blog going, thank you for the nice read.
