DACHSHUND AND THE LEOPARD
wealthy man decided to go on a safari in Africa
He took his faithful pet dachshund along for company. One day, the
dachshund starts chasing butterflies and before long the dachshund
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 dachshund
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 dachshund exclaims loudly,

canine." Now the dachshund 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 dachshund says, "Where's that monkey? I sent
him off half an hour ago to bring me another leopard."
