Once there lived a washer man in a village. He had one donkey and a dog as a pet.
Washer man had divided the duties between donkey and dog.
Donkey was there to carry clothes and other items from one place to another, while dog’s duty was to guard the house from thieves.
Every day when washer man comes back from his work, he used to play with his dog. He throws a ball towards the dog and then they both play with each other.
Donkey felt very jealous seeing both of them enjoying. He thought that his master loves dog more than him.
One day donkey noticed that; when washer man comes back home; dog goes to him, and starts waging his tail, then he barks and run around him.
Donkey understands that, dog plays with his master, so master also plays with the dog.
Next day, when washer man comes back from his work, donkey started braying and running around the man and then he jumped with his front legs on his master.
Washer man and dog were shocked to see the donkey’s act. Washer man also got hurt from the donkey’s leg.
Washer man thought that his donkey got mad, so he starts beating donkey with a stick. Donkey hurriedly runs out the house in pain.
Dog went to the donkey and then he asked him for his strange behaviour. Donkey explained about his feelings to the dog.
Dog said “we both have different personalities and different duties. Never try to copy others. ” Donkey understand his mistake, but it was too late.
