The Dog And The Cook
A rich man gave a great feast, to which he invited many friends and
acquaintances. His Dog availed himself of the occasion to invite a
stranger Dog, a friend of his, saying, "My master gives a feast, and
there is always much food remaining; come and sup with me tonight."
The Dog thus invited went at the hour appointed, and seeing the preparations
for so grand an entertainment, said in the joy of his heart, "How
glad I am that I came! I do not often get such a chance as this. I
will take care and eat enough to last me both today and tomorrow."
While he was congratulating himself and wagging his tail to convey
his pleasure to his friend, the Cook saw him moving about among his
dishes and, seizing him by his fore and hind paws, bundled him without
ceremony out of the window. He fell with force upon the ground and
limped away, howling dreadfully. His yelling soon attracted other
street dogs, who came up to him and inquired how he had enjoyed his
supper. He replied, "Why, to tell you the truth, I drank so much wine
that I remember nothing. I do not know how I got out of the house."
