DONKEY AND THE DOG, THE
Once upon a time, a man had a little dog he loved very much.
The dog would sit on the man’s knee by the fire, and the man would pat the dog on the head.
A donkey looked in the window and saw the man and the dog.
"Why does he not make a pet of me?" said the donkey. "It is not fair.”
The donkey said to himself, "If I do what the dog does, the man may make a pet of me."
So the donkey ran into the house and tried to jump onto the man’s knee.
The man thought the donkey was mad and shouted, "Help! Help!" The neighbors came running and drove the donkey out of the house.
"I only did what the dog did," said the donkey to an owl. “Yet they make a pet of him, and they make me stay in the barn. It is not fair."
“It is not fair that you get to stay in a barn, and I have to stay in a tree,” replied the owl. “Be thankful for what you have.”
