He thought, “It is a good opportunity for me to show my master that I too can be useful to him. The thieves have run away.

4) When the washer man heard the donkey bray at this odd hour, he got angry. He came out with a stick and thrashed the donkey. “This will teach him not to bray at night,” he screamed. The donkey got all the thrashes in silence. He did not know what was taking place.
5) The washer man said, “I am glad I had this dog in my house. I am sure the thieves would have burgled me if my dog had not barked.” The washer man was highly proud of the dog.
