It’s a dog’s life

An Englishman went on safari in Zambia, taking his faithful corgi along for company. One day the corgi decided to go do some exploring on her own. 

As she was wandering around, she saw a leopard approaching with the obvious intention of having her for lunch. Just in time, she noticed some bones on the ground nearby, and settled down to chew on the bones with her back to the approaching leopard.

When the cat was close enough to pounce, the corgi said, “Wow, that was one delicious leopard! I wonder if there are any more around here?”

Hearing this, the leopard immediately halted his attack and retreated into the jungle. “Whew, that was close,” said the leopard. “That dog nearly got me.”

A monkey who had witnessed the whole encounter from a nearby tree figured that he could put this knowledge to good use and trade it for protection. So he went after the leopard, and when he caught up to him, the monkey told what he had seen and heard and struck a deal for himself.

Furious at having been tricked, the leopard growled, “All right, monkey — hop on my back and watch what I’m going to do to that conniving canine!”

But the corgi had seen the monkey go after the leopard and figured out what he was up to. When she saw the leopard approaching with the monkey on his back, she sat down with her back to them, pretending she hadn’t seen them. When they were close enough to hear, the corgi said, “What’s taking that monkey so long? I sent him half an hour ago to bring me another leopard!”

  4. So, what is the moral of the story?

    Perhaps,,,,,,,,

    It you have short legs like a corgi and like to “chew” on bones in a jungle, better to turn your back on a predator and think quick, or your bones will be “chawed.”

    Regards and goodwill blogging.

    Have a better one?
