Survival Relies Upon Changing a Leopard's Spots!


Using Your Wits as your Ultimate Survival Tool.

Sometimes Survival Relies Upon Changing a Leopard's Spots!

An avid hunter and outdoors-man decided to go on a safari in Africa.

He took his

faithful Black Cocker Spaniel along for company rather than

leave it at a kennel for the duration of his vacation.

One day, the Cocker Spaniel started

chasing butterflies and before long, the dog discovered that it was


So, wondering about, it noticed a leopard rapidly

approaching his direction with the obvious intention of having HIM for lunch.

The little dog thought, “Okay, I’m in deep trouble.” Then it noticed some

bones on the ground close by and immediately he settled down and chewed on the bones with his back to the approaching leopard.

Just as the leopard was about to leap, the Cocker-Spaniel exclaimed loudly,

“Boy, that was one delicious leopard! I wonder if there are any more

leopards around here?”

Hearing this, the leopard held his attack

in mid-stride. A look of terror came over him and he cowered away into

the trees. “Whooo,” said the leopard, “That dog nearly had me.”

Meanwhile, a monkey, who had been watching the whole scene from a

near-by tree, figured he could put his knowledge to good use and trade

this information for protection from the leopard.

The monkey decided to

tell the leopard the truth about what the little dog had done.

The Cocker Spaniel saw the monkey run over and talk to the leopard and

figured that the monkey was telling the leopard about his trickery and knew something was up.

The monkey did indeed tell the leopard

about the dog's method in exchange for the leopard to never

eat the monkey. The leopard and the monkey struck a deal.

“I have been made a fool of?” The leopard huffed, “here monkey, hop on my

back and see what is going to happen to that conniving little dog.”

When the Cocker Spaniel saw the monkey hop on the leopard's back and the

leopard was now running toward him.

“What am I going to do no” Thought

the little dog.

Instead of running the little dog sat down with

his back to the approaching leopard with the monkey on its back.

He sat and waited until the leopard was close enough to hear, he said,
 “Where is that lazy monkey. I sent him off an hour ago,

to bring me another leopard.”


Moral: Don't just tuck tail and run at the first sign of problems.

A little ingenuity goes a long ways, my friends!
