A true story . While maybe a bit stretched .
A 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, "Boy, that was

as a look of terror comes over him, and slinks away into
the trees. "Whew," says the leopard. "That was close.
That dachshund 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 dachshund 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 dachshund sees the leopard coming with the
monkey on his back, and thinks, "What am I going to
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."
Wasn't long before leopard ripped the monkey off his back.
