The Dog and the Piece of Meat

One sunny day, a dog was fortunate enough to find a large and juicy piece of meat. Happily going his way with the meat in his mouth, the dog reached the side of a stream. Seeing his reflection in the water, the dog believed the image to be that of another dog also holding a piece of meat. Wishing to own the other dog's meat, he opened his mouth and barked loudly. But just as his jaws came apart, the meat slipped away and fell into the swift waters of the stream.
