Dog and Leopard 
A wealthy man decided to go on a safari in Africa. He took his faithful pet 
dog along for company.

One day the dog starts chasing butterflies and before long he 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 dog thinks, 'Boyo, I'm in deep doo doo now.' (He was an Irish setter) 
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 dog exclaims loudly, 'Man, that was 
one delicious leopard. I 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 dog 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 dog 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 cat 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 dog 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 dog says, 'Where's that monkey? I just can 
never trust him. I sent him off half an hour ago to bring me another leopard, 
and he's still not back!'
