The Dog And The Wolf

A GAUNT Wolf was almost dead with hunger when he happened to meet a House-dog
who was passing by. “Ah, Cousin,” said the Dog. “I knew how it
would be; your irregular life will soon be the ruin of you. Why do you not work
steadily as I do, and get your food regularly given to you?&#148; <br>
&#147;I would have no objection,&#148; said the Wolf, &#147;if I could only get
a place.&#148; <br>
&#147;I will easily arrange that for you,&#148; said the Dog; &#147;come with
me to my master and you shall share my work.&#148; <br>
So the Wolf and the Dog went towards the town together. On the way there the Wolf
noticed that the hair on a certain part of the Dog&#146;s neck was very much worn
away, so he asked him how that had come about. <br>
&#147;Oh, it is nothing,&#148; said the Dog. &#147;That is only the place where
the collar is put on at night to keep me chained up; it chafes a bit, but one
soon gets used to it.&#148; <br>
&#147;Is that all?&#148; said the Wolf. &#147;Then good-bye to you, Master Dog.&#148;<br>
