                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon TOBIR, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Say what you will about blind luck and dirty 
fighting, but THE DEATH SQUAD will tell you 714-525-40 is nothing to laugh at...  
Practice pays for SEVERE PUNISHMENT, who pummelled THE LITTLE PUP, to pocket 19 
points.  A DOG FOR TODAY certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing 
to SIDEWINDER and losing 15 points in the process!  REUNITED successfully staved off 
a grab for the roses by LASSO of THE DOGHOUSE.  Does TOBIR have no one talented 
enough to dethrone him?  Word has it one team in TOBIR is taking speech lessons to 
try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Everyone is famous for fifteen 
minutes, and JEX is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't ORDER proud!  
Them's the breaks, FEATHERS.  Expecting fair challenges from THE DEATH SQUAD is 
evidently too much to ask.  BROWN WIDOW defeated FEATHERS.  The whole thing leaves a 
bitter memory.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not for whom the 
sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Do not despair!  
I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Our congratulations to Reunited. -- Jorja and the Doghouse pack

Reunited -- I don't know about the "congratulations" stuff, but I'll be glad to see
the last of you.  Figuratively, that's for your human sensibilities.  What I actually
mean, is, I'll be glad to smell the last of you.  Not that you smell any worse than
most humans. -- Lasso

Maria -- I thought you were just going to scratch my belly!  Then you... you HIT me!
-- Harry Mutt

Vortex -- You CAT! -- The Little Pup

Sidewinder -- Listen, I have to try harder!  The Commission thinks I'm a CAT, and I'm
NOT.  So I have to be especially canine. -- A Dog for Today

Jex -- What kind of order is that?  I know "down," and "heel," and "come here," but
not that one. -- Feathers

ALL -- MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL IN ALASTARI!!!
May your year end in peace and the new year hold great things for you and your
families. -- Gentleben (Sunset-21, Morya-28, Arvat-32 and Talahya-100)
