One day an old German shepherd starts chasing rabbits and, before long, discovers
that he’s lost. Wandering about, he notices a panther heading rapidly in his direction with
the intention of having lunch.
The old German shepherd thinks, “Oh, oh! I’m in deep doo-doo now!”
Noticing some bones on the ground close by, he immediately settles down to chew
on the bones with his back to the approaching cat. Just as the panther is about to leap, the
old German shepherd exclaims loudly, “Boy, that was one delicious panther! I wonder if
there are any more around here?”
Hearing this, the young panther halts his attack in mid-strike, a look of terror comes
over him and he slinks away into the trees. “Whew, that was close!” says the panther,
“That old German shepherd nearly had me!’
Meanwhile, a squirrel 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
panther. So, off he goes.
The squirrel soon catches up with the panther, spills the beans and strikes a deal for
himself with the panther.
The young panther is furious at being made a fool of and says, “Here, squirrel, hop
on my back and see what’s going to happen to that conniving canine!”
The old German shepherd sees the panther coming with the squirrel on his back and
thinks, “What am I am going to do now?”
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 old German shepherd says:
“Where’s that squirrel? I sent him off an hour ago to bring me another panther!”
