Cuddles, the faithful aged poodle, on photo safari
A wealthy old lady decides to go on a photo safari in India, taking her faithful aged poodle named Cuddles, along for the company.
One day the poodle starts chasing butterflies and before long, Cuddles discovers that she's lost. Wandering about, she notices a tiger heading rapidly in her direction with the intention of having lunch.
The old poodle thinks, "Oh, oh! I'm in deep sh** now!" Noticing some bones on the ground close by, she immediately settles down to chew on the bones with her back to the approaching cat. Just as the tiger is about to leap, the old poodle exclaims loudly, "Boy, that was one delicious tiger! I wonder if there are any more around here?"
Hearing this, the young tiger halts his attack in mid-strike, a look of terror comes over him and he slinks away into the trees. "Whew!", says the tiger, "That was close! That old poodle nearly had me!"
Meanwhile, a monkey 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 tiger. So off he goes, but the old poodle sees him heading after the tiger with great speed, and figures that something must be up. The monkey soon catches up with the tiger, spills the beans and strikes a deal for himself with the tiger.
The young tiger is furious at being made a fool of and says, "Here, monkey, hop on my back and see what's going to happen to that conniving canine!"
Now, the old poodle sees the tiger coming with the monkey on his back and thinks, "What am I going to do now?", but instead of running, the dog sits down with her back to her attackers, pretending she hasn't seen them yet, and just when they get close enough to hear, the old poodle says: "Where's that damn monkey? I sent him off an hour ago to bring me another tiger!"
Moral of this story . . . Don't mess with old farts . . . age and treachery will always overcome youth and skill! BS and brilliance only come with age and experience!
