The Sovereign Order of Monte Cristo have a deep affinity with animals of all kinds, but dogs (and wolves) in particular have a special place in the hearts in these amazing people. This is mainly because they are nine times out of ten smarter and better looking than most humans. The Order are a very busy group of highly evolved individuals who's time is more precious than gold. However, they also care deeply for all humans of the world and in order to keep society running as smoothly as possible, it is essential that every action of the human race is closely monitored by The Sovereign Order Of Monte Cristo. At first, The Order employed the help of the humble house fly for all their spying needs; but were shocked and saddened by how many humans ended the flies mission and life early with one firm swat of a rolled up newspaper (or several flailing swats in most cases).
So The Order needed to employ a creature that no man or woman, no matter how frustrated or angry they may be, could never harm. Their only two options were cats or dogs, and obviously cats were out of the question due to their indignant and selfish nature. And so, The Order took advantage of humans misconceptions about their so called dumb and naive canine friends, and hired them as their full time secret agents.
