|"He took his faithful pet Waffi dog along for company"|
A wealthy Urhobo man decided to go on a safari in one of the games
He took his faithful pet Waffi dog along for company.
One day the dog starts chasing butterflies and before long he
discovers that he is lost. So, wandering about he notices a leopard heading rapidly in his direction with the obvious intention of having lunch.
The dog thinks, "Boy, dis na wahala."
Then he noticed some bones on the ground close by, and immediately
settles down to chew on the bones with his back to the approaching cat.
Just as the leopard is about to leap, the dog exclaims loudly, "Man,
dat leopard sweet o, I wonder wer I go fit get more around here?"
Hearing this the leopard halts his attack in mid stride, as a look of
terror comes over him, and slinks away into the trees. "Chei", says
"That was close. dat dog nearly chop 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 leopard. So, off he goes.
But the dog saw him heading after the leopard with great speed, and
figured 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 cat is furious at being made a fool of and says, " Oya monkey,
climb my bak make you see wetin I go do dat wayo dog."
Now the dog sees the leopard coming with the monkey on his back, and
thinks," Wetin man go 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 dog says, "wey dis
monkey sef. you no fit eva trust am, 30 mins don pass since I send am make he go bring anodar leopard and he still neva com bak!"
