Social Etiquette of an Alien

Guinness, here. Groucho won 3rd place in Mango-minster. He won in the HOUND category which, is questionable, if you ask me.
And what is all this? It is Groucho's winnings from Lacie, Stan and Scruff!

Lacie DID say to let's phone Groucho and tell him to come divvy up his loot!

I DO think this toy GUINNESS BEER is most fitting for me!

And WOOPS! Saige already de-stuffed the WUBBA Kong before Groucho even gets here! Let's hope he doesn't want that!

Well, here he comes...he wastes no time and greets us with his weird alien ritual.

Well...unfortunately, Groucho seems really scared of these toys.

He just never seems to know how to play.

We introduce him to Lacie...

Groucho does not know what to do ... He still has some issues to work through...

He likes the rope though! I think he sees some resemblance....

He goes off by himself in the corner for the rest of his visit. Poor little dude.

In the end Groucho goes home with the treats and the rope...and we get to keep the rest! Thank you so much Lacie, Stan, Scruffy and company!


  1. Congrats to Groucho - you guys made out like bandits!

  2. Do I detect Lacie legs on Groucho? I never noticed that before, but maybe they are related. Weird alien dude doesn't know how to enjoy a good toy. Well, more loot for you two.


  3. Congrats to Groucho - and looks like everypup wins in this case. We LOVE Groucho.

  4. Better alien etiquette than non at all! Hope he'll come around and learn to play, though! Poor guy doesn't know what he's missing!

  5. FUN! Maybe he'll get used to the toys. He's probably still in shock.

  6. What a super score! Congratulation, Groucho!

  7. We just love Groucho! Of course he is an alien. What great pressies - enjoy.

  9. Wowee! Thats a lot of pressies! Have fun with all of them!

  10. Congrats, Groucho! What fun toys! Or not. I'm not that into toys usually, so I can relate. I"d rather play with Dave!
    Play bows,

  11. Whohoo! Congrats!!! Those are some pawsome prezzies!!

  12. Um...that fat chicken in the PURPLE bikini may have cast a spell on the ALIEN...

    YES...we did stuff Lacie inside of it before we shipped the boxie...

    She was channeling her inner fat chicken...

    Soooooo glad ya like the pressies!!!!!


    Scruffy and Stanley...

    Send Lacie back when you're sick of her...

  13. Ahhhh Groucho, you are a sweetie despite your alien blood. ;) Congrats...I think you deserved the win!


  14. I have posted videos of our 6 pups if you want to see them in action.

  15. Hey you guys! Groucho is just a normal, ordinary Afghan Hound. Dog toys? Not where he comes from. Playtime? Sure, he can run circles around the rest of you.

    Be nice to Groucho, he is who he is.


  16. Groucho looks funny but Alien Er well may be.

  17. Woooos! Groucho, it is difficult being unique isn't it. Don't worry, be happy!

  18. Well done Groucho - and how generous of you to share! You're a hound after our hearts - we adore rope toys, so satisfying to chew, so wonderfully tactile to romp around with!

    (Hey - we're glad you got our card, sorry it arrived a bit late for the day it was intended! Anyhoo, glad you 'got it' and had a giggle - we do sometimes wonder if some people think we're a bit odd as most of the stuff we do involving the hounds is not meant to be taken seriously and is only intended as a bit of fun! Guess what - a local dog owner who we also got a card for has really taken it seriously - we're a bit worried she's actually planning a doggie wedding - eek!)

  19. Congrats to Groucho and what great pressies he got (despite you two helping yourselves!!!)

  20. I love the certificates. As for poor Groucho, you didn't leave him much. Since when did his category become questionable, when he won? BOL Fun times, my furiends. Thanks for sharing.

  21. fab photos again - strange rituals we hounds have!!!

  22. You guys sure look likeyou are enjoying all those presents. We think the chicken needs a sweater
