The Dog, the Cockerel and the Fox

The Dog, the Cockerel and the Fox:


A dog and a cockerel who met while on a journey decided to travel together. Night fell.

The cockerel went to sleep up in a tree and the dog settled down at the base of the trunk.

Just before dawn, as was his custom, the cock crowed. He was overheard by a fox who rushed up and said, 'What a magnificent voice! Come down, I want to congratulate you.'

'I'm afraid I can't,' replied the cockerel. 'The doorman of this hotel is asleep and I can't come down until he wakes up.' 'I'll wake him up right now,' promised the fox. The dog leapt up, growled and the fox fled.
