                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ARADI since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen adapts 
to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Woof!  INGRATE WHITE NORTH were a 
bunch of dogs after RED DOG GANG got through with 'em!  3rd ain't so sweet as 1st!  
What's with DAISY DAWG?  She actually beat ARADI's PERSISTENT BEGGAR, and walked away 
with 8 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at RED DOG GANG.  DIRTY DAWG lost 6 
points to AMBITIOUS GUARD.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe DIRTY DAWG will 
provide more easy wins...  BALKO DUNN was reminded on the sands why TICK ... TOCK is 
Duelmaster.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every 
day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

I don't know if you humans realize how it is with Dogs, REAL dogs, and sticks and
balls and stuff.  Sure, you throw, we chase, and it's better than being shut up in a
little house.  But sometimes it would be a lot more fun to go out and chase something
for real.  A rabbit.  Maybe even a deer--we could do that as a pack.  And catch it
and kill it and eat it.  Think about that, eh? -- Spot
