Perry's Index to the Aesopica
Fables exist in many versions; here is one version in English:
THE COOK AND THE DOG
Someone was hosting a splendid feast in the city after having performed a sacrifice.
A dog belonging to the host ran into another man's dog who was a friend of his
and invited him to come to the feast. The other dog came but the cook grabbed
him by the leg and threw him out over the wall and into the street. When some
other dogs asked him how the party had gone, the dog answered, 'Couldn't have
been better! I can't even quite tell how I made my exit.'
