First of all, I realize I failed to put up my normal Friday Dog-Blogging post yesterday. I could make excuses, but I just plain forgot.
Secondly, when I went to put up an It's Saturday post this morning, Typepad suddenly humped a bunk and refused to save the blog entry. I got pissy, I'm afraid, and in a fit of pique, I left the internet entirely and visited the 3-D World, where I tasted chicken salad in Trader Joe's, and a nice man repaired a flat tire on my daughter's bike.
I'm back now and in a forgiving mood. Let's see if Typepad learned its lesson. This joke was sent to us by my sister in-law (and previously posted by Mom). So have some respect, Typepad. Ready, go.

One day the poodle starts chasing butterflies and before long, Cuddles discovers that he's lost. Wandering about, he notices a leopard heading rapidly in his direction with the intention of having lunch.
The old poodle 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
leopard is about to leap, the old poodle exclaims loudly, 'Boy, that was
one delicious leopard! I wonder if there are any more around here.'
Hearing this, the young leopard halts his attack in mid-strike,a look of terror comes over him and he slinks away into the trees..
'Whew!' says the leopard, 'That was close! That old poodle nearly had me!'
Meanwhile, a monkey who had been watching the entire scene from a nearby tree figures he can put this knowledge to good use and trade it for protection from the leopard. So off he goes,but the old poodle sees him heading after the leopard with great speed, and figures that something must be up.
The monkey soon
catches up with the leopard, spills the beans and strikes a deal
for himself with the leopard.
The young leopard 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 leopard 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 his back to his attackers, pretending he 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 leopard!'
