So naturally the humans have been reading all about Afghan Hounds! Did you know we have really unique tails that form a ring? And some Afghan Hounds have a beautiful angelic fragrance. Folk stories and legends have been written about these special scented hound...let's see..sniff sniff sniff....
Nope. I am definately not one of those ....

And on the internet it says we are not known for our intelligence and that we rank dead last of all the breeds on certain tests. Well, I just have to say one thing about that...THERE IS A BIG DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INTELLIGENCE AND OBEDIENCE. Just because I was not breed with a gene pool for obedience is the same as saying bulldogs are stupid because they can't catch rabbits.
I am actually highly intelligent and very sharp! I am always 2 steps ahead of those Wolfhounds. When they smell a cat around a tree I am already watching the cat run and go up the other tree. I knew right where I lived after one walk...and I already know the difference between the neighbours and a stranger.

I am all this and brains too!


  1. Humph. I think perhaps the wolfies might be simple beasts such as myself. Momma says I could make a doorknob look smart.

    You seem to be settling in.


  2. Hi Groucho - that first photo with your tail helping to spell out your name is wonderful! How lovely - Max might 'mirro image Monday' you next week as his tail usually forms an 'o' over his back (unless he's really upset about something!) We think the doggies who pretend to be the 'dumbest' are usually the smartest - we're just keeping the humans on their toes!! Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

  3. Opinions aren't facts. You look smart to me. You got some nice humans to take you home...that seems smart. ;)

  4. Groucho we think you are gorgeous - our mum's friend had an afghan called Major - he wasn't too smart it has to be said.
    We have been trying to catch up with Award posts over at our blog - we passed one to you guys but you know there is no pressure!!!
    We go between taking the line the beagles took and saying no awards - and it is a good way to network letting everyone get to know new blogs!!!

  5. In fact we think we have got your wolfies speilling wrong too..........

  6. Brains & Beauty. Who could ask for more.
    Love Ruby & Penny

  7. Awwww Groucho!!!! Maybe you have found your furever home after all?????????????????

    Love & Licks,

  8. We understand exactly what you mean about intelligence and obedience. We not only think you are intelligent, we think that you are adorable!

  9. Groucho you are very handsome and you look right at home there among the "wolfies". We think you are very smart - you wiggled your way into a home full of love for special guys like you.
    Ernie & Sasha

  10. I believe every word, but that pic and angelic fragrance do not go together! :)

  11. we love your tail - and poor groucho and mango - you guys are just different

  12. Wooos! Mom always says it is not a measure of intelligence that figures out obedience, but willingness!

  13. Groucho, you have brains and beauty as far as I am concerned, you found a good family, you get along with everybody and you don't make trouble.
    Thats as smart as you will ever have to be! Further, I love the markings on your face!


  14. "O" boy! roo roo. I just love your curly tail...mine only culs up when I'm excited and see a sparrow on MY windowsill! It must be nice to have a curly tail all the time.

  15. Dear Groucho,

    That list, I think, is not so much about intelligence as trainability. You just like to do your own thing, that is all!

    what a great tail you have!I think its good that you let your nether-regions air. I should do that as I have a bit of a rash at the moment; a bit of airing might help it get better.

    On to other matters; I am very concerned for the well-being of your hoomans. They are very delicate creatures and do need to sit and lay down occasionally. Take good care of them, ok?

  16. Grocho,
    You must be very smart to write a blog, so you can tell anyone who calls you less than intelligent, "I can blog, you?"

  17. Hi, Groucho!
    Thanks for letting my mom know the difference between intelligence and obedience. Now she knows I am just intelligent!
    Kisses and hugs

  18. Groucho, you seem to be very getting comfortable there! The name photo is brillant! The not-so-little man was so impressed with what you can do with your tail. He's been trying to curl mine for the last hour - but it ain't working!!

    Take care
