The Greedy Dog and the Bone

Once, a dog was passing through the backyard of a house. He found a piece of bone. He picked it up and ran to a lonely corner. He sat there and began to chew the bone. He felt tired. So, he dropped the bone and slept there itself.

After-a-while he woke up. He felt thirsty. He did not want to leave the bone. So he picked up the bone in his mouth and ran upto a nearby river.

In the river, he saw his own reflection. The greedy dog thought that there was another dog with a bone. He wanted that too. He began to bark.

The bone in his mouth fell down into the river. The dog lost his bone.

Moral of this story is : Greed leads to Grief.
