In the wintertime, a Dog curled up in as small a space as possible
on account of the cold, determined to make himself a house.
However when the summer returned again, he lay asleep
stretched at his full length and appeared to himself to be of a
great size. Now he considered that it would be neither an easy
nor a necessary work to make himself such a house as would
accommodate him.

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
