The Dog and the Oyster – Aesop’s fables

dog animated

A big, bulky dog loved gobbling up eggs. One day he entered a chicken coup and ate up all the eggs one after the other. 

On another day he was walking along the seashore when he lay eyes upon an oyster shining under the sun. In a second, he ate it up, having momentarily devoured and enjoyed the meal. 

But the oyster caused him great pain and a belly ache. He had enjoyed the shell and all too in haste, but now he had to suffer in leisure.
