The Naughty Dog | Aesop’s Fables
Naughty Dog | Podcast
Once upon a time, a man brought a dog home as a pet. However, the man was unaware that the dog had a naughty nature, and it would often bite the heels of anyone who visited the house. Eventually, people stopped coming to the man’s house due to the dog’s misbehavior, causing the man to become very upset.
To solve this problem, the man decided to tie a bell around the dog’s neck. The idea was that the ringing of the bell would alert people to the dog’s presence, and they could avoid him accordingly. However, the dog interpreted the bell in a different way, feeling very proud of the sound it made and believing it to be a mark of distinction. He would strut around proudly, showing off his new accessory.
One day, an old hound noticed the dog’s behaviour and called him out on it, explaining that the bell was not something to be proud of. Instead, it was a public notice to people that the dog was ill-mannered and should be avoided. Hopefully, the dog learned his lesson and stopped acting up, so the man could get his guests back.
The moral of the story is that sometimes we may misinterpret or misunderstand the signals we receive from others. In this case, the dog was proud of the bell around his neck, but he did not realize that it was a sign of his ill-mannered behavior. Similarly, in life, it is essential to be aware of how our actions and words affect others and not make assumptions or misunderstand what others are trying to convey. We should always try to communicate effectively and be open to feedback so that we can improve our behavior and avoid unintentionally pushing people away.
