    The Two Dogs


There was a Man who had two dogs: a Hound, trained to assist him in his sports, and a Housedog, taught to watch the house.

 When he returned home after a good day's sport, he always gave the Housedog a large share of his meal.

 The Hound, feeling much hurted at this, went to his companion , saying, "It is very hard to have all this labor, while you, who do not assist in the chase, luxuriate on the fruits of my efforts."

The Housedog replied, "Do not blame me, my friend, but find fault with the master, who has not taught me to labor, but to depend for the survival on the labor of others."

Moral: Children are not to be blamed for the faults of their parents.
