The Donkey And The Dog In a small town there lived a potter. He had a dog to guard
his house and pottery, and a donkey to carry his load. Whenever the master came, the dog used to bark a
little to welcome him. He ran upto the master and raised his front
legs and puts them on the master. The master pets the dog and
gives him nice food to eat. The donkey used to watch this
daily routine from a distance. He began to feel jealous of the dog. He thought with jealous, “What an easy life for the dog! He just roams around.
He barks at strangers. That’s all this work. Yet, he is being cared with
love and affection. But look at me!
I carry all the loads. Yet, all I get is hard blows
and left-overs for eating”. So the donkey decided to behave in
the same ways as the dog, in order to get nice treatment
from his master. He roamed here and
there and neighed a little, ran to him and wagging his tail
he started to lift his front legs. The master got annoyed. He took a long stick and
landed heavily blows. Poor donkey! The moral of the story is JEALOUSY WILL NOT SERVE GOOD.
