The Wolf and the Housedog

: Aesop's Fables

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."
