The Dog and The Meat

Ngebray.com,-  A dog ran off with a peace of meat stolen from the butcher’s shop. Crossing over a river on his way home, he looked down at his own reflection in the water. He thought the reflection was another dog with another piece of meat and decided he may as well have both pieces. But, as he opened his mouth to snap at the reflection, he dropped his piece of meat into the water. It was carried away by the river and so he lost all of his meat.
