The Old Dog

Absolutely brilliant.....this will delight you...

(Thanks to my friend, C A Shivanand Gaitonde, for sharing it...)

A German Shepherd starts chasing rabbits & 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 shit 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 & slinks away into the trees. "Whew!" says the panther, "That was close! 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 & trade it for protection from the panther.....So, off he goes. The squirrel soon catches up with the panther, spills the beans & strikes a deal for himself with the panther. The young panther is furious at being made a fool of & says, "Here, squirrel, hop on my back & see what's going to happen to that conniving canine!" Now, the old German Shepherd sees the panther coming with the squirrel on his back & 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 & just when they get close enough to hear, the old German Shepherd says...(This made me smile)
"Where's that squirrel? I sent him off an hour ago, to bring me another panther!"

1. Don't mess with old dogs.
2. Age & skill will always overcome youth & treachery.
3. Bullshit & brilliance only come with age & experience.
