I am the commanding officer for a small band of soldiers, who undertake various missions as assigned. My group of soldiers however, are 2-3cm tall, green, and totally inanimate.
As I actually work in IT, my job can be a little dull occasionally, when going somewhere to repair something, I usually bring one of my soldiers with me, to assist with my mission,
enter their base of operations, establish a command point and work surveillance.
Once I have done my job in hand, I will sneakily leave one of my little army men there, usually precariously hidden slightly out of sight.
So far over 30 people have been left with the protection of one of my trusty brigade.
Today I was alerted to the fact that one of my troops has went AWOL and potentially endangered one of my friends dogs.
I received a text asking "If I had left a little green army man" toy at his house?"
I surrendered immediately as I would not want one of my soldiers to be harmed in their mission, and I admitted "I had left a little soldier there,
yes" and playfully added “What are your terms to ensure the safe release of my soldier?”
5 minutes later I received another text saying that my friend had spent over 25 minutes this morning trying to remove it from his dogs throat because he had found my soldier and decided it
would be a fantastic chew toy. Since Yorkshire Terriers are small dogs, he was horrified that I had potentially choked and killed his dog...
Mission failed I guess. My troop have raised the flag for their fallen comrade.
TLDR: Leaving toy soldiers at friends houses and offices could potentially kill a dog.
