Guinness has an Awful Virus

Hi...it's Maggi catching some Z's and I have to tell you something. Guinness is sick with a terrible virus. I heard the humans talk about it...and it is called the GROUCHO. Have you ever heard of this kind of virus?

It seems to come and go when Guinness is most vulnerable-- like a cold sore. Strangely, it strikes hardest on the weekends.

Although I can not see it--it seems to be quite a big virus by the feel of things--with strange sproings and sprockets popping out all over the place.

Apparently it attaches itself to Guinness and follows him around where ever he goes. It drains all his energy. There is nothing Guinness can do to shake it off--he just has to wait it out til the thing goes away on its own.

Luckily, Guinness seems to accept his condition. He seems patiently resigned and carries on the best he can...

The humans were really worried. I heard them speaking in code. They said things like "Uh-oh Groucho is coming, how is this going to work with Maggi..." and " Oh no, Groucho wants to hang out with Guinness". I think they were afraid I was going to catch it! But I went right up to the virus and there was no trouble. I must be immune!


  1. At first I was scared! LOL

    Molly has a huge WART that grows on her back. She named it 'Cookie'.

  2. Maggi, you must be a very healthy girl having such high immunity to the Groucho virus.

  3. TD has one of those viruses here too. Those germs are everywhere, Maggi. But we don't think we would mind if the Groucho virus invaded our space:)

  4. I was so scared when I saw the title of this post. I fear that the Groucho virus is one that you will have to develop immunity to or just succumb and enjoy it.


  5. That title had me scared! And then when I saw it was a Groucho virus I was even more scared! Poor Guinness, the things he has to put up with. Maggi Im glad you seem to be immune to the Groucho. :)

  6. We were scared by the title, But then we had a good laugh. If WE had to have a virus, we'd like a Groucho one......we think.

  10. Goodness, Maggi, you are indeed lucky to be naturally immune to the Groucho virus.

    Though I hope you do catch it a little bit, I think Groucho is just a little bit cute!
