Once upon a time, there was a very hungry dog. It saw a tasty piece of meat in a nearby house and decided to take it. With the meat in its mouth, the dog walked onto a narrow bridge over a river. As it looked down into the water, it saw its own reflection. The dog thought there was another dog with an even bigger piece of meat in its mouth. This made the hungry dog want the other piece of meat too. The greedy dog wanted to have a big feast with both pieces of meat. But when it tried to take the other piece, it accidentally dropped its own meat into the river. The river's strong current quickly carried away the meat, and the dog ended up losing its own meal. So, because of its greed, the dog lost the food it already had.
