The Master and His Dogs

A CERTAIN MAN, detained by a storm in his country house, first of

all killed his sheep, and then his goats, for the maintenance of

his household. The storm still continuing, he was obliged to

slaughter his yoke oxen for food. On seeing this, his Dogs took

counsel together, and said, "It is time for us to be off, for if

the master spare not his oxen, who work for his gain, how can we

expect him to spare us?'

He is not to be trusted as a friend who mistreats his own family.
