Apparently sometime around 1959, Elvis did reportedly see what appeared to be a space ship of some sort. He was stationed in Germany at the time. There was some sort of small creature that came out of the ship and followed Elvis around. Story has it that Elvis took a liking to the little guy and when his tour of duty in the military was over, he brought the critter back to the states with him to stay. They remained friends for many years afterwards and when Elvis started touring in the 70's, he would have the little fella keep his water glass full on stage and put scarves around his neck. I think someone said that Elvis started calling him Charlie or something like that. Anyway, I hope this clears things up.
