Groucho on Drugs and in Jail

Guinness here--walk with me for a bit while I tell you about Groucho. Last week, Groucho dislocated his hip AGAIN the day before he was due to get his sling off. It was kind of my mom's fault. She went over to his house and he followed her downstairs without anyone noticing...
Then he couldn't get back UP the stairs on 3 legs. So she tried to gently "bum boost" him. Well, on that last step the little guy got over ambitious and did a sort of jump to the top...

...and that is when it happened. Hmmm...the cows look good. So now he has to keep his sling on for TWO WEEKS and no fooling around this time or it could mean surgery if it happens again. The vet said this was not a breed thing, or a dog thing or an age was just a fluke thing.

Let's rest here a bit... Where was I? Oh yes, just like any human can dislocate their shoulder, so can any alien dislocate their hip. Guess he shouldn't have been practicing his levitational skills in bed. SOB.

Well, my humans went over to Groucho's for supper and here inlies the scandal.

This is called a "Maritime Turkey Dinner" and WE WERE NOT INVITED!

Worst of all, we could not enlist the help of Groucho's other worldly levitational skills to sneak us some. See look--here he is in jail! He has to be kept still and quiet.

And see him knocked out cold? It is because he is on drugs too! He has been rendered completely useless. So no lobster for us...and for a little while, no Groucho either.


  1. Groucho - we are pretty sure that part of the recovery regimen is being hand fed lobster.

  2. Ouch! Groucho! That has to hurt. I always knew he wasn't glued together properly. Now he is on drugs too? I think he will need mentals therapy or maybe an intervention.


  3. He must be drugged--not trying to get the lobsters!

    Thanks for taking time out on your security walk to give us the low down on Groucho.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  4. Oh wow! I am so sorry about the hip! Poor baby! Guiness, guess you will just have to wait for some of that yummy lobster another time. (I'm drooling).

  5. We hope Groucho feels better soon and gets out of jail!

  6. Oh dear, poor Groucho! We do hope he gets well soon.
    Too bad you guys were not able to go to the dinner party but we guess things had to be kept quiet for the patient.
    Get well soon Grouch - we love you - we never believed you were an alien!

  7. Oh, no Groucho!! We hope you are feeling better soon!
    And you totally deserve a huge feed of Maritime turkey!!

  8. Oh my gosh- Our Flurry's poor hip had to be reset also! I wonder if it takes a couple of tries often? Yummmm, we have Maritime Turkey here too! Grandpa is a Lobsterman. Your pictures and stories are such a treat!

  9. Groucho is in rehab???? He has a Fluke??? I thought only Whales had those.
    Hope he is better sooooooon. Poor guy.

  10. Poor guy. All doped up and no lobster! Hope he gets better soon. It's no fun to be hurt :(

  11. Do you need me to come and break you out of jail? Just give me the signal and I will be there!

  12. We certainly hope that Groucho gets better soon... poor baby, we don't visit for a spell and he's in Jail and taking Drugs! What is this world coming to!!! hehe

    Belly rubs to both of you and don't forget to help mom take care of Groucho; BUT only if she gives you some of that LOBSTA!

  13. Poor Groucho!!! Drugs & jail... as long as it helps him get better. HOpe your Mom doesn't feel too bad. We know she wouldn't/didn't do anything to him on purpose. Thank you for taking us on a walk with you while you explained.

  14. oh no! Poor Groucho Alien-dog. Mom & I are crossing our fingers & paws respectivley in hopes that he doesn't have to have surgery to fix his hip.

    wags, wiggles & slobbers

  15. aw man that maritime turkey dinner has my momma drooling all over the keyboard, we hope poor groucho gets his spring back in his step soon loves and licks

  16. Er...those lobsters look a little bit too scary to eat!! :-)

    Poor Groucho - talk about bad luck! Hope he is on the mend soon -

  17. Poor Groucho - we feel his pain - well Mom certainly does anyway!

    look after yourself Groucho!
    take care

  18. oh no! poor Groucho! I must remember, in case I am ever in the same situation, that bum boosting is not a good idea!

    I think under the circumstances Groucho can be forgiven for becoming a drug-user.
    But probably it should not be forgiven that you did not get any maritime turkey!

    your pal,

  19. Life is just not fair! Sending Groucho well wishes!

  20. Mommy and I sure hope that he gets better quickly!
    Sally Ann

  21. Oh no! Poor Groucho! I hope he's feeling better soon!


  22. Poor Groucho!
    I hope he gets better soon!
    I enjoyed the walkie!
    Kisses and hugs

  23. Poor Groucho! What an absolutely insane thing to happen. I am certainly glad to hear it is not a breed thing. Sending Groucho some green healing energy...

    Saige looks awesome--I love the picture of her resting beneath the tree. Wow it is so green where you are.

    Good luck keeping him quiet, I am sure it is a huge job.

    Hugs, Nanci, Isabella and Pharaoh

  24. Guiness, thank you for that updated report on Groucho. Mmmmm... lobster. Dipped in melted butter... Yum.
