On the farm, there lived a dog who was so notorious and naughty that his owner was tired of him. His owner had to tie a massive wooden log with his leash to prevent him from going around and annoying the neighbors.
But the dog was so mischievous that he went around the village dragging the wooden log around, causing a lot of commotion. An old friend saw him doing so and advised, “If I were you, I would not drag that log around to show everyone what an ill-mannered, mischievous dog I am”.
Being notorious is not something to be proud about.
