The Chihuahua and the Leopard

A wealthy man decided to go on a safari in Africa. He took his faithful pet Chihuahua along

for company. One day, the Chihuahua starts

chasing butterflies and before long the Chihuahua

discovers that he is lost. So, wandering about, he notices a leopard heading rapidly in his direction with the obvious intention of having lunch. The

Chihuahua thinks,"OK, I'm in deep trouble now!"

Then he noticed some bones on the ground

close by, and immediately settles down to chew

on the bones with his back to the approaching

cat. Just as the leopard is about to leap, the

Chihuahua exclaims loudly, "Boy, that was one

delicious leopard. Wonder

if there are any more around here?"

Hearing this, the leopard halts his attack in mid-

stride, as a look of terror comes over him, and

slinks away into the trees. "Whew," says the

leopard. "That was close. That Chihuahua nearly

had me."

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 from the leopard. So, off he goes.

But the Chihuahua saw him heading after the

leopard with great speed, and figured that

something must be up. The monkey soon

catches up with the leopard, spills the beans and

strikes a deal for himself with the leopard. The

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 Chihuahua 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 his attackers,

pretending he hasn't seen them yet ... and just

when they get close enough to hear, the

Chihuahua says... "Where's that damn monkey? I

sent him off half an hour ago to bring me another

leopard."
