The Wolf and the Housedog

A WOLF, meeting a big well-fed Dog with a heavy collar about his neck, asked him who it was that fed him so well and yet compelled him to drag that heavy chain about wherever he went. "The master," he replied.

Then said the Wolf: "Such a collar would spoil my appetite. You have been enslaved my friend."

"To the contrary," replied the Dog with much indignation. "I am the richest, fattest and most free. You're just a savage and thus lack the ability to understand."

The confused Wolf then ran off into the receding forest.

The Wolf and the Housedog (original fable)

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."
