A dog sat chewing at a delicious bone that it has found near the river. It chewed the bone for a very long time and soon this made it quite thirsty. It decided to go to the river to quench its thirst. It took the bone along as it was worried that some other dog might take it away.
As it stood near the river, it saw its reflection in the water. It seemed to see another dog with a bone in his mouth. And being greedy by nature, it wanted that bone
too. So it barked at the other dog, hoping to scare it and give the bone to him. But alas! The bone that it held in its mouth fell into the river.
