The Dog and his Shadow
Once a dog stole a piece of meat from a butcher’s shop. He ran away to enjoy it lonely. He had to cross a bridge. As he looked below, he saw his own shadow in the water there.
The foolish dog took the shadow to be another dog with a piece of meat in his mouth. He was so greedy that he wanted to have it too. He barked at the shadow and opened his mouth. The result was that he dropped tha piece of meat from his mouth into the water below.
