Dogs are man’s best friend. And they can be sharper than men sometimes too!
An Old Dog With A New Trick
A wealthy lady decides to go on a photo safari to Africa, taking her elderly poodle along for company.
One day the poodle starts chasing butterflies and before long discovers that he’s lost. Wandering about, he notices a leopard heading rapidly in his direction with the intention of having lunch.
The old poodle thinks, “Oh, oh! I’m in deep doo-doo now! Noticing some bones on the ground close by, he immediately settles down to chew on the bones with his back to the approaching cat. Just as the leopard is about to leap, the old poodle exclaims loudly, “Boy, that was one delicious leopard! I wonder if there are any more around here?”
Meanwhile, a monkey who had been watching the whole scene from a nearby tree, figures he can put this knowledge to good use and trade it for protection. So off he goes, but the old poodle sees him heading after the leopard with great speed, and figures that something must be up. The monkey soon catches up with the leopard. He spills the beans and strikes a deal for himself with the leopard.
The young leopard is furious at being made a fool of and says, “Here, monkey, hop on my back and see what’s going to happen to that conniving canine.” Now, the old poodle sees the leopard coming with the monkey on his back and thinks, “What am I going to do now,” but instead of running, the dog sits down with his back to the attackers, pretending he hasn’t seen them yet.
Just when they get close enough to hear, the old poodle says: “Where’s that monkey? I sent him off an hour ago to bring me another leopard!”
That dog just saved his hide. Good for him!
