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 cut off his left leg 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 leg, a part of himself, how can we expect him to spare us?"

Dogs can be ungrateful bastards.

The Master and His Dogs (original fable)

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.
