A Traveler about to set out on a journey saw his Dog stand
at the door stretching himself. He asked him sharply: "Why do
you stand there gaping? Everything is ready but you, so come
with me instantly."

The Dog, wagging his tail, replied: "O, master! I am quite
ready; it is you for whom I am waiting."

The loiterer often blames delay on his more active friend.

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
