A greedy dog
A Greedy Dog went into a butcher’s shop and stole a big juicy bone. He ran away so fast that the butcher could not catch him. He ran out into the fields with his bone. He was going to eat it all by himself.
the dog came to a stream. There was a narrow bridge across it. The dog walked on to the bridge, and looked into the water. He could see another dog with a big bone in his mouth.
the GREedy dog thought the bone in the water looked much bigger than the one he had stolen from the butcher.
the GREedy dog dropped the bone from his mouth. It fell into the water and was lost. He jumped into the water to snatch the bigger bone from the other dog.
the GREedy dog jumped into the water with a big splash. He looked everywhere but he could not see the other dog. His shadow had gone.
the silly dog went home hungry. He lost his bone and got nothing because he had been too GREedy.
