Greyhound 'Very, Very High' After Vet Visit Has Internet in Stitches

A dog named Sambucca has gone viral for looking high after coming back from a veterinarian visit with its owner, in a video that has amused the internet.

In the video, published by the dog owner's child, who goes by the username u/oldsadman, the dog's owner can be seen holding Sambucca, laughing at the way the dog is staring into space with its mouth open, unable to move or bark.

The post was accompanied by a caption that read: "My mum's dog had to go to the vet. She came back very, very high."

Sambucca is a greyhound who, as the owner explained further down in the comment section, used to race but was then given up before they rescued it.

According to research published by dog rescue charity GREY2K USA, committed to ending dog racing, American greyhound dog racing is currently in decline.

Since GREY2K USA Worldwide began its national campaign in 2001, 45 American dog tracks have closed or ceased their live racing operations, and there are now only 3 dog tracks remaining in two states.

Gambling on dog racing also continues to decrease, between 2010 and 2018, according to the charity, the total amount gambled on greyhound racing nationwide declined by 32%.

The video, which was posted on Wednesday on the r/WhatsWrongWithYourDog subreddit, has gone viral, receiving over 32,900 upvotes and 344 comments.

Most users loved the dog's faces, while others thought the grandma may have had some of what the dog had too. One user commented: "Who hasn't been carried out the club once or twice."And another added: "I wasn't exactly 'carried'...but, yes I did leave the club."

A third user said: "Who came back high? Your mum or your doggo? I certainly hope they are both well & will each have a speedy recovery..."

While a fourth joked: "Mum is laughing hysterically while the dog is like: There is no pain, you are receding. A distant ship's smoke on the horizon..."
