A man on a safari took his faithful pet dog, Fluffy along for company. One day, Fluffy was chasing butterflies and soon realized he was far away from his master. Looking around he noticed a leopard heading quickly in his direction.
He said, "Oh boy, I'm in trouble now." Thinking quick he noticed some bones on the ground nearby. Immediately he settled down and began chewing the bones, his back to the racing leopard.
Just as the leopard was about to leap, Fluffy exclaimed out loudly, "That was one delicious leopard. I wonder if there are any more leopards around here?"
Hearing that, the leopard halted his attack in mid-air, a look of terror on his face. He slunk away into the trees thinking, "Whew, that was close! That dog nearly had me."
Meanwhile, a monkey watching from a nearby tree figured he could trade his knowledge of what just happened for protection from the leopard, and off he went. However Fluffy saw him heading off after the leopard and figured something must be up.
The monkey caught up with the leopard and told him his tale. The leopard, furious at being made a fool of, said "Here, monkey hop on my back and see what I do to that sneaky dog."
Fluffy saw the leopard coming with the monkey on his back, and again thought quickly of a solution. He sat down with his back to the leopard and the monkey pretending he hadn't seen them. When they were close enough to hear, he said, "Where's that monkey? I can't seem to trust him. I sent him off half an hour ago to get me another leopard and he's still not back yet."
