                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
TOBIR brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  I can just hear all the boasts coming 
in BUGINATORS' next personal ads.  Their first turn they went 4-0-0.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see WESTON win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, WHOLE MUTT beat STEWART and STEWART lost 8 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as 100% takes the Title and last 
week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks 
and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Ya gotta go sometime, and FROSTY THE SNOWMUN's time 
was this time.  Hmmm, not a bad fighter, had he lived... (what?  me pity?).  Let's 
see, 9-4-0.  Pretty good record for a living warrior.  A sad one though, for a dead 
one.  Such is the case for LADY MUTT of THE DOGHOUSE.  Tsk.  Titanium shields and 
bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in TOBIR to get a drink than The Victory 
Tavern!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide

Frosty the Snowmun -- Ah, it's been your season here for sure!  But a good dog, a dog
who IS a dog and not some pampered housepet, knows how to deal with a snowmun.  And
it doesn't involve a frisbee, either. -- Scruff

Aabboott -- Strange name, but I suppose that's people for you.  I'm glad you made
that fast, I've got things to do.  Bones to chase, balls to bury, that sort of stuff,
you know?  A dog's work is never done. -- Ginkor

Weston -- How totally annoying.  Well, perhaps not TOTALLY.  I did want a win, of
course, but a couple of skills is no problem.  I can accommodate them. -- Echanosarah

George Foremun -- Ah.  You need to be careful.  Don't go rushing up to strange dogs.
Not that I'm strange, but in a tense situation, any natural dog might bite.  It's
what we do to express our unease. -- Lady Mutt

Stewart -- Well, darn.  I thought everybody understood that when you play tug-of-war
with a dog, the dog wins in the end and gets to carry the shoe away and chew on it!
Just for being such a good dog, right? -- Whole Mutt

Our congratulations to 100%. -- Jorja and the Doghouse mutts

     As threatened, here is a current manager list for this arena.  Let me know if
