382. THE COOK AND THE DOG
Perry 328 (Babrius
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.'
