Perry's Index to the Aesopica
Fables exist in many versions; here is one version in English:
THE DOG AND HER MASTER
A man who was about to go on a journey said to his dog who was standing beside
him, 'Why are you just standing there with your mouth hanging open? Get yourself
ready, you're going to go with me.' The dog wagged her tail, fawning on her
master as she said, 'I am all ready to go; you are the one who's delaying!'

in the Aesopic fable tradition. Invaluable.
