The Dog in the Manger
The Dog in the Manger Lyrics
A Dog lay in a manger, and by his growling and snapping prevented the oxen from eating the hay which had been placed for them.
"What a selfish Dog!" said one of them to his companions; "he cannot eat the hay himself, and yet refuses to allow those to eat who can."
Moral : We should not deprive others of blessings because we cannot enjoy them ourselves.
