The Dog and the Shadow

Posted on: October 28, 2012


 

 

One day a starving to death, dog, stole a piece of meat from a butcher’s shop. He looked for a safe place where he could eat it easily. He knew a safe place across the river. Whenever he wanted to eat something unseen by other dogs, he used to go his picky hiding cave.

But for that he had to cross the river on the bridge.

While walking on the bridge with meat in his mouth, he saw his own reflection in water below. He thought his image to be another dog with a piece of meat. He being a greedy dog, decided to have that also piece of meat too. So, he barked to frighten the dog in the river to take its piece of meat too.

The moment the greedy dog opened his mouth, the piece of meat dropped from his mouth and fell into the river. His pitch clogged up. When he looked below in water, he saw a dog standing with nothing in his mouth!

He lost his own meat too.

 

MORAL OF THE STORY:
