A woman decides to go on a photo safari in Africa. She takes her pet dachshund along for company.
One day, the dachshund starts chasing butterflies, and before long the little dog discovers it’s lost. Suddenly the dog sees a hungry leopard bounding toward it.
The dachshund thinks, I’m in deep trouble now! But then it notices some bones on the ground and immediately settles down to chew on them.
Just as the leopard is about to leap, the dachshund exclaims loudly, “Boy, that was one delicious leopard! I wonder if there are any more around here?” Hearing this, the leopard halts its attack. With a look of terror, it slinks away into the trees.
“Whew,” says the leopard. “That was close. That dachshund nearly had me.”
Meanwhile, a monkey that had seen the whole thing decides to put this knowledge to good use, trading it for protection from the leopard.
The monkey goes to tell the leopard it has been duped. The leopard is furious. “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 its back, and thinks, Uh-oh, what am I going to do now? But instead of running, the dog sits down with its back to its attackers, pretending it hasn’t seen them yet.
As the leopard and monkey get close enough to hear, the dachshund says, “Where’s that monkey? I sent it off half an hour ago to bring me another leopard!”
