How long is your dog's tail hair?

Just curious...

Dexter is just a little over a year and his tail hair has never been trimmed and was wondering if this is the length his body hair would of been if never clipped.

Dexter lovely tail plume now measures 6 inches long. I am thinking the tail hair grows slower than the body hair, what do you think?

After what seemed to me to be a slow start in comparison to his body hair, Kodi's tail hair is now about 5 1/2" at 7 1/2 months. His body hair grew faster earlier, but that's about 5 1/2" now too, and has never been cut. His ear hair has grown the slowest... that hangs down about 2 1/2" below his ears.

All measurements are subject to error on a wiggly puppy who wanted to sniff the ruler!<g>

Ok, ladies...before I measure... are we talking total tail? LOL, ie. tail and hair growth? or Just Tail? or Just Hair? Because I bet my Cash's tail is a foot long!

I assumed she was talking about just the hair... Kodi's TAIL is much longer than that, but it's so curly (not to mention waggly) I probably couldn't measure it!

As far as Cash's tail is concerned, I'd take bets that he would get the prize for sheer QUANTITY of tail hair on the forum!!!

LOL Karen. I remember that picture you took of his tail at the Play date!!! he does have a magnificent tail!!! As a puppy, before he got longer than he was tall...his tail either dragged on the floor or on the rare occassion it was up it took up his whole back. we called him our little skunk puppy. But also, his actual Tail (not fur) is much longer and wider than Jasper's.... Have you ever wondered why we don't analyze our husbands or children with this degree of detail? CDL's unite.

I wonder if that's why he doesn't carry it up as much as other Havs... It's just a lot heavier!
