The greedy dog

The greedy dog :

One day, a dog stole a big piece of meat and proud of his own courage, ran off with it, held tightly in his jaws.

He reached the bank of the river where he looked down and spied another dog with a piece of meat in its mouth, every bit as big as his own.

He did not realize that it was merely his own reflection in the water. Feeling greedy he threw himself on the other dog to steal his meat as well.

Unfortunately, when he found himself in the water, he had to let go of his own piece of meat to avoid drowning and so was left with nothing.

"So, greediness proved a curse to him."
