The Dog and His Reflection

It happened that a Dog had got a piece of bone and was carrying it home in his mouth to eat it in peace. Now on his way home he had to cross a plank lying across a running brook. As he crossed, he looked down and saw his own shadow reflected in the water beneath. Thinking it was another dog with another bone, he made up his mind to have that also. So he made a snap at the shadow in the water, but as he opened his mouth the bone fell out, dropped into the water and was never seen again.

Moral of Aesops Fable: Beware lest you lose the substance by grasping at the shadow
