Very tired from our flight from the Nobel Prize festivities in Stockholm we land in our private jet in Toronto and clear customs and Bob orders a limo to take us home. Sweet home and a bowl of clean and cold Canadian water with a simple chicken kibble and of course the occasional treats we find in our bowls. Dillie and I love watermelon particularly sweet yellow Ontario watermelon. Of course we love cheese and the morning is not simply a morning without a piece of toast or a bit of bagel,,,,sesame of course.
Do you remember that sense of dread I had in Stockholm? It sits in my stomach as we enter the limo to take us home. Bob has forgotten to arrange a security detail But we are in Toronto scooting home. Do not forget I am a street dog. I can sense danger miles away or I would not be alive to tell you this story!
We drive on the 401 Highway and take the Bayview exit to our Bridle Path home. Why is that Mercedes minivan following us? As we pass by the Edward ‘s Botanical Gardens and are a few minutes away from our home the Mercedes van cuts us off and three heavily armed men approach the limo and shoot our driver in the head. There is blood all over the seat. I am not afraid nor is Dillie the Westie. We have no guns but we have Scottish and Egyptian bravery in our blood. It is do or die time! Pay the price of our strength and bravery you low life’s. We’ll rip you to shreds! You dare touch Bob and Fay you’ll regret it….forever!
The door opens and Dillie and I take our victims. I jump out and lunge at the neck of one of the attackers. He collapses in a pool of blood. Dillie can’t jump like me so he attacks biting the ankle of another thug who falls screaming in pain but gets up and smashes Dillie the Westie in the head with the butt of his Browning pistol. Bob is in a rage and runs toward the evil man who hit Dillie. Bob is shot in the shoulder and spins to the ground. Fay has fainted. Oh Allah, God or Jesus please help. PLEASE HELP REGGIE! HELP DILLIE BOB AND FAY. A wet rag with some horrible smelling chemical is put over my snout and I remember no more.
Dillie is in the best animal hospital in Toronto with a cracked skull and an inflamed brain. He has a 50% chance of living. Bob is in hospital having lost a lot of blood but he will be OK.
This is an international incident and it is no surprise the Brother’s of Egypt claim responsibility and demand a ransom be paid for my release. There is no religious overtones to the demands as these thugs simply want money. But do they know who they are dealing with!
$50 million for my release. These cowards. If I could only get out of the cage they put me in I would show them NEVER MESS WITH A CAIRO STREET DOG!
Our friend in Washington Joe, oops, President Biden, phoned Bob in the hospital and he is so very angry that two brave dogs have been put in peril. His Federal Bureau of Investigation know much about these Brother’s of Egypt whom he says are Bulgarian extortionists and criminals who launder money for radical fundamentalists in Egypt. President Biden will send a top FBI operative with a very thick file to help the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The Pope in the Vatican has said a special mass for Dillie the Westie and me. Our friends Drake and Mr. Gordon Lightfoot have offered whatever help they can give.
Is this all my fault? Would it have been better if that Rottenwhiler had killed me in Cairo? Pardon me for my foul language but these Bulgarian criminals are going to get their ass kicked in. Joe and the RCMP and FBI are ready to go.
