Fable Aesop
The Wolf And The Housedog
printer friendly version
A Wolf, meeting a big well-fed Mastiff with a wooden collar about
his neck, asked him who it was that fed him so well and yet
compelled him to drag that heavy log about wherever he went.

"The master," he replied.

Then said the Wolf: "May no friend of mine ever be in such a plight;
for the weight of this chain is enough to spoil the appetite."

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
