The little chihuahua danced her feet off, she was so happy. She had screwed up big time, was about to get in serious trouble but, at the last minute found a poodle to blame.
The poodle was innocent. In fact, the poodle not only always did the right thing, but went above and beyond his job requirements. The poodle was at first confused, but his keen brain and reputation saved him. The uproar the chihuahua started made the authorities overlook her guilt and the incident was swept under the rug.
