Aesops Fable
The Dog and the Wolf

A gaunt Wolf was almost dead with hunger
when he happened to meet a House-dog who was passing by.
“Ah, Cousin,” said the Dog.
“I knew how it would be;
your irregular life will soon be the ruin of you.
Why do you not work steadily as I do, and get your food regularly given to you?”  

  “I would have no objection,” said the Wolf, “if I could only get a place.”  

  “I will easily arrange that for you,” said the Dog;
“come with me to my master and you shall share my work.”  

  So the Wolf and the Dog went towards the town together.
On the way there the Wolf noticed that the hair on a certain part of the Dog’s neck was very much worn away, so he asked him how that had come about.  4

  “Oh, it is nothing,” said the Dog. “
That is only the place where the collar is put on at night to keep me chained up;
it chafes a bit, but one soon gets used to it.”  

  “Is that all?” said the Wolf. “

Then good-bye to you, Master Dog.”

Aesop for Children - another translation

The Wolf and the Housedog

There was once a Wolf who got very little to eat because the Dogs of the village were so wide awake and watchful.
He was really nothing but skin and bones, and it made him very downhearted to think of it.

One night this Wolf happened to fall in with a fine fat House Dog who had wandered a little too far from home. The Wolf would gladly have eaten him then and there, but the House Dog looked strong enough to leave his marks should he try it. So the Wolf spoke very humbly to the Dog, complimenting him on his fine appearance.

"You can be as well-fed as I am if you want to," replied the Dog. "Leave the woods; there you live miserably. Why, you have to fight hard for every bite you get. Follow my example and you will get along beautifully."

"What must I do?" asked the Wolf.

"Hardly anything," answered the House Dog. "Chase people who carry canes, bark at beggars, and fawn on the people of the house. In return you will get tidbits of every kind, chicken bones, choice bits of meat, sugar, cake, and much more beside, not to speak of kind words and caresses."

The Wolf had such a beautiful vision of his coming happiness that he almost wept. But just then he noticed that the hair on the Dog's neck was worn and the skin was chafed.

"What is that on your neck?"

"Nothing at all," replied the Dog.

"What! nothing!"

"Oh, just a trifle!"

"But please tell me."

"Perhaps you see the mark of the collar to which my chain is fastened."

"What! A chain!" cried the Wolf. "Don't you go wherever you please?"

"Not always! But what's the difference?" replied the Dog.

"All the difference in the world! I don't care a rap for your feasts and I wouldn't take all the tender young lambs in the world at that price." And away ran the Wolf to the woods.

The Wolf and the Housedog

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."
