Red alert!

The ministry is under attack! Repeat, the ministry is under attack! I hear skirmishes down the hall. It sounds like they're getting closer. Mugsy, Brody, somebody -- please send help! Oh, I just knew something bad was going to happen in the ayatollah's absence. Does anyone know if the ministry's benefits include that insurance that protects you if you're injured and unable to work? Oh, what is it called? I can never think of the name.

Oh no! They're at the door! Mugsy, please help! AFLAC! AFLAARGH!

We are on our way from Canada! Oh crap we don't have passports so might never be able to leave the States again if we fly. Looks like we have to steal the family car and head south. We will be there in a couple of days. Hang tight our fine feathered friend!

Mallard,
The Pug Brigade is on the way. Fear not, we shall distract the enemy with our adorable antics. As far as the insurance, I'm afraid the standard policy will exclude acts of war, so you're probably out of luck. When this is over you may be limited to filing a workman's compensation claim against the Ministry. Good luck and hang tight.

I'll launch a gas attack Mallard! I ate some broccoli today so it will be really bad; put on your gas mask so you aren't hurt!

Standing ready for whatever the Ayatollah may require of me... us Airedales don't start fights, we end 'em so just let me know whenever I am needed to "finish the job" oh great one... oh, and I'm an excellent digger for anything that might need to "disappear"...

Mugsy,
I am heading south on I-35 and should be in your area by the time you read this. I have connections with a fine army of canines. Use my cell to contact me with future instructions.

Do we like need to bring any weapons or sandwiches or anything?

Mallard, I had the single worst scare of my young life this morning...I thought I saw you dead in Fleetwood Cadillac's back yard. On closer examination, I was ever so relieved to discover it was one of your kinfolks and, other than being soakin' soppin' wet, he was O.K. One wouldn't think a Mallard would get soakin' soppin' wet like that but rain happens.

That was an awful feeling, Mallard. Fleetwood's Mallard-person was identical to you...your own mother would have thought it was you.

I went back this afternoon and obviously Fleetwood remembered where he'd left his comrade and retrieved him. I hope he's in the dryer at this moment.

Back to the situation at hand though, I may be late - it's so foggy here I can't see my nose (what little there is of it) in front of my face.
