The Traveler and His Dog (fable)

A TRAVELER about to set out on a journey saw his Dog stand at the door stretching himself.

He asked him sharply:

“Why do you stand there gaping? Everything is ready but you, so come with me instantly.”

The Dog, wagging his tail, replied:

“O, master! I am quite ready; it is you for whom I am waiting.”

The loiterer often blames delay on his more active friend.
