a Dog Earned the Right to Eat from the Table
long time ago there was a man who lived in a big forest.
The man lived alone, except for his dog.
On many evenings they would talk together, this man and his
dog. Then one day the
dog said, “All right my friend, let’s go hunting!
It seems like I can smell many squirrels toward the
north.” So they left
to go squirrel hunting, this man and his friend.
they were walking along a path the dog suddenly heard something
making a rattling noise by his path.
The dog said, “Stop! Stop!
I hear something! It
might be a rattlesnake rattling!”
Then the dog grabbed the snake, and began to shake him and
shook him until he had killed the snake.
when they had finished hunting, they went home.
The man began to cook, and he fed the dog on the ground.
But finally the dog wouldn’t eat; he just had a scowl on
his face. The man told
the dog, “What’s wrong with you?
Aren’t you hungry?”
The dog replies, “Oh yes, I am hungry, but I want to what
the reason is that you feed me on the ground!
Why can I not eat at the table also?”
The man said, “Oh well, you can eat with me, you can come
and sit right here!” The
dog smiled. He began
to eat. He was eating
with his friend.
