Once upon a time, there was a dog who lived with his master. The dog was very faithful and loving to his master.
His master taught him to carry a small pouch of money to the Bakery. The baker would then take the pouch of money. The Baker would give the dog a basket filled with meat and bread. The dog would carry the food back to his master. As a reward, the master would feed some meat and bread to the dog. The dog could smell the tasty food but he was very loyal and never stopped to eat it.
The other dogs in the neighborhood always saw the dog carrying a basket of food. They made many attempts to steal the basket but he was a strong and big dog. Nobody could stop him from his duty. So the other dogs decided to convince him to join them.
They told him that he could eat the entire basket instead of just scraps. The dog tried to run away but they surrounded him and spoke to him saying that he was a fool.
The dog stopped to argue and soon he began to think that he was a fool. He dropped the basket and grabbed the biggest piece of meat.
He said, “You can divide the rest.”
Moral of the Story:
“Do not stop to argue with temptation.”
