From: Agent Skittlebutt
To: Mr. Whiskers
Subject: Mission Report
I must report that although I felt ill for a time last year, I was never so ill that I couldn’t perform my duties. No one can accuse me of that, not that I think anyone said I couldn’t pull my weight. I just want to be clear. I felt ill, but I continued working. My performance may not have been as vigorous as it should have been, but I was able to function. The humans tried to interrogate me, but I gave nothing up. I’m as good an agent as Agent Probie.
It’s just the two of us and we are able to cover our territory. We do not need any more agents here. It’s more work for the pair of us, but it is nothing we can’t handle. I will do extra workouts to ensure that I maintain my strength. It is what I must do. Are there any proscribed workout routines I should be doing? I would appreciate it if headquarters could send me a list of exercises I should do to maintain peak health.
I have been running to get cardio and yoga for flexibility. I do the running when the humans are not about. I run from room to room in this habitation. I leap up to see out the windows. In that manner, I check for external agents who may have something to report. They never seem to. I suppose the night is better for them to observe, but they should be reporting. If they are reporting at other locations, please let them know this location is available for them to tender their reports.
My health scare has had a positive effect on me. I am quite conscious of my health and I assure you that I will take care of my health. If anyone comes to check us, they will find me in good health. I do not wish to feel as I did during the height of my illness. It was not pleasant.
The humans were not pleased either. As I said, they interrogated me, and watched me for along while after. I will not give them the excuse to do that to me again. I will be fit and ready for anything. I am fit and ready for anything. I will make the humans leave me alone. I am fit and no one can say otherwise. I will work as hard as anyone here.
Agent Probie is too focused on the pond. I do not believe it is a danger to us. They do not even allow the favored canines into it. I do not see them forcing us into it. Agent Probie is wasting his time ‘investigating’ it. That said, I would like access to the room it is in because I believe running around it would be good for me. It would allow me an un-obstructive path to run laps around a room. This is just something I feel would benefit me. The exercise would also benefit Agent Probie, but he doesn’t seem inclined to run.
