The family’s pet Chihuahua wandered from the camp site
one night while on safari. Scared and hungry after his night
in the wild, the Chihuahua found some fresh bones under a
bush. Quickly he began to devour them, satisfying his
hunger. As his little belly became full, he noticed a lion out of
the corner of his eye.
Knowing he was in deep trouble, the little dog exclaimed
loudly, “Wow! That was a delicious leopard. I wish I had
another to eat.”
Overhearing the Chihuahua, the lion stopped his prowl and
ran in the other direction. After running for ten minutes, the
leopard took a rest. He thought, “That was a close call! That
vicious dog almost got me.”
A monkey was in the nearby trees watching everything. He
quickly thought of a way to form an alliance to protect him
from future danger.
Carefully, the monkey approached the lion. Staying safely in
the trees he called to the lion, explaining the entire prank.
The monkey did not know the Chihuahua had seen him
venture off to the lion nor did he know the dog had listened to
his conversation with the king of the jungle.
The lion was enraged when he heard the truth and set off to
locate the little canine. But the sly pooch had another trick
When the lion approached he turned his back and
pretended to be hunting.
As the lion started to pounce, the creative dog said
something to stop him in his tracks, once again setting a
feeling of fear within the lion.
