Know any loopholes around the Ban on Experimental Breeding? Let's just say.... my wife wasn't exactly fond of having a Common Welsh Green and a Demiguise on the property anymore. We had a row, she called the Ministry. Got a court hearing next week and I feel like I've swallowed a dozen pixies. Haven't exactly had a squeaky clean record with the Ministry and I'm worried if I don't make it through this, they'll ship me off to Azkaban.
How'd yeh manage ter get a dragon near a Demiguise without it turnin' invisible? Blimey. You don' still have the eggs do yeh? I'm happy ter look after 'em while you're at yer hearin'. 'Course, the Ministry probably took 'em all, but... yeh hid one, didn' yeh? Send me back the date an' time an' I'll come ter the Ministry with yeh. Got a few records of cases they dismissed where the wizard said he'd swallowed Essence of Insanity by accident. We'll sort yeh out. Let me know 'bout those eggs.

You still breeding those Blast-Ended Skrewts? You told me you'd bring me one next time you came into Hogsmeade and I'm still waiting. How long does it take to make a manticore charm the jewels off a fire crab? Put on a Celestina Warbeck tune and that fire crab will be shooting flames out of it's rear in no time. I paid those galleons up front, Hagrid! You better deliver the goods soon.
Dear Professor Hagrid,
My Augurey has been constantly moaning the past month and has been much more of an active flier than usual. I'm terrified I'm about to die! I read once that their cries foretell death and I haven't even tried Firewhiskey yet! I'm not old enough to die. There's so much I want to do with my life and I'm still trying to perfect the Love Potion for my next door neighbour. I can't die before he kisses me. Please, Professor, how do I cheat death? If I kill the Augury will that cancel out my own death?

Dear Gamekeeper Hagrid
I have a little problem. See, there's this oaf teaching at my school trying to pass as a civilised human. The problem is you can barely understand what the half-breed is trying to say. It comes out in grunts and we don't know if he's trying to teach us about unicorns or acromantulas. Though the acromantula part wouldn't surprise me, he's been known for setting beasts on students. He thinks it's funny. I think it'd be funny if someone managed to put him down. Any suggestions on how to poison a half-giant?

Yeh listen ter me, Draco..... yeh.... I..... [shakes head, looking defeated]

Professor Hagrid will not be wasting his time answering your letter today. Instead, please find enclosed a copy of the highly entertaining book: "The Amazing Bouncing Ferret", for all your ferret-care needs. Includes useful facts such as:
- Why ferrets like to crawl in small, dark spaces to sleep (hint: because they're spineless jerks)
- How to say ferret in Latin, Gobbledegook, Mermish and Troll! (pronounciation: Dra-co)
- Did you know ferrets play a large part in the Hippogriff's diet? Teach your ferrett to say "Hello Buckbeak!"
- Five ways to spook a ferret (includes a sample pot of Alastor Moody Polyjuice Potion)
- Worried about your housemates hexing you after catching your fleas? Get rid of those fleas with a 5 Galleon voucher to spend at Magical Menagerie in Diagon Alley.
I hope you find this helpful in aiding your real little problem, Malfoy.
I've already ordered my copy of The Amazing Bouncing Ferret from Flourish & Blotts. But they said I might have to wait a few weeks, seems there was a large influx of purchases from Gryffindor house this week
Anyway, thank you so much for stopping by here today, Hagrid! I know you're busy with classes and helping Grawpy come along. Apparently he's stopped trying to tug off Buckbeaks tail, awww. Wonder if I can get Hagrid to teach him to say my name?
