"It just started turning green and then it fell off," said Opie, an eye-witness. "I wanted to bury it, but the other lady had a grip on my collar."
The dog owners used food coloring to dye their mutt, Andy.
"I was so ashamed," said Andy. "Opie just had to wear the antlers. I got the short end of the stick."
After an emergency operation, the owner's hand was reattached and she is home recovering quickly. The dye, on the other hand, has been slow to wear off.
"Serves her right for doing that shit to me," Andy said. "Bah Humbug, assholes."
Looks like the Grinch will have to coexist with the Whos for another Christmas, but maybe next year the Whos will think twice about the depths in which they go for a family portrait.
"Yeah right," said Opie. "Next year they want to do Mary, Mary, and the Three Drag Queens. Guess who'll be playing the part of Baby Jesus?"
