Noticing some bones on the ground close by, he immediately settles down to chew on the bones with his back to the approaching bear. Just as the bear is about to ponce, the old Doberman exclaims loudly, "Boy, that was one delicious bear! I wonder, if there are any more around?”
Hearing this, the young bear halts his attack in mid-stride, a look of terror comes over him and he slinks away into the trees. "Whew!," says the bear, "That was close! That old Doberman 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 and trade it for protection from the bear. So, off he goes. The squirrel soon catches up with the bear, spills the beans and strikes a deal for himself. The young bear is furious at being made a fool of and says, "Here, squirrel, hop on my back and see what's going to happen to that conniving canine!”
Now, the old Doberman sees the bear coming with the squirrel 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 Doberman says……..
"Where's that squirrel? I sent him off an hour ago to bring me another bear!”
Moral of this story:
1-Don't mess with the old dogs... Age and skill will always overcome youth and treachery!
2-Bull shit and brilliance only come with age and experience.
Now pretend the Doberman loves to Idaho fly fish. We ask the squirrel to find Mr. Bear and say, "If you take the Doberman a trout, you can easily eat him while he is distracted eating the trout." So the bear easily catches a trout and off he went. Long and short, off he goes with his freshly caught trout and soon is eaten by the pissed off Doberman. Why? The Doberman believed in "catch n' release" and the griz killed the trout by not using a barbless fly.
Hard takes to you all.
