“My friend bull, what is a strong and sturdy like you doing in the company of three ugly and skinny goats? Don't you realize that those who see you will take take you for a weak animal?”.

The bull was meditative about those words, and fearful of the gossips, he went drifting apart from the goats. But one day he saw himself abandoned and alone, and he remenbered his friends the goats, thinking to himself:

“Why did I had to listen to a flea-ridden dog I didn't even knew? I was living happily playing with the goats on the meadow, and now I’m all alone because of my own bad decisions”.

So the bull went out searching for the goats to ask for their forgiveness, and when he found them, the swore them eternal friendship.

Immediately, he found a group of mice having a great feast with his Master’s food. Before attacking he said to himself: “What a bunch of thieves! They’ll get what is coming for them!”. And without further ado, the puppy jumped on the group of mice, but he didn't realize that very close from there, there was a mousetrap.

He stumbled with the mousetrap, and one of his paws was trapped, and the Puppy gave strong howls of pain.

A parrot that was nearby screamed: “Well, well, see the Hunter hunted”. The Puppy, agonizing by the pain caused by the trap, begged: “Please help me! Take this thing off me, I promise I won’t bother anyone!” The good mice heard his plead, got closer to the Puppy and immediately set him free. Then, one of them told him: You see Puppy? This is what happens to you for believing you're a cat”.

The Lion and the Donkey arrived to an agreement to go hunting together. While the lion was in charge of collecting some preys thanks to his strength and speed, the donkey will use the power of his kicks to get the others. This way, bonded by the same objective, they’ll get better results than ever.

So they worked together, and the first day they shared the task with great success. At the agreed hour, the lion and the donkey met to do the recount of the pieces, and the former made three piles with all of them.

“The first pile belongs to me, as King. And the second pile also belongs to me, since I’m your partner”, said the lion. That distribution didn’t seem fair to the donkey, but he approached the third pile to take his share, when he heard the lion spoke to him with anger:

What are you doing?

I’m taking my share”, the donkey replied.

Your share? What share? The first and the second pile are mine for the reasons I’ve given you. And the third one is also mine, because if you refuse you’ll end up becoming one of the preys in the pile”.

7: The two frogs
During an intense and hot summer day, the fields were bright yellow, the puddles were dry, and the swamps were full of dry leaves with just a bit of wáter. That day, there were two frogs walking in search of wáter, since they were really thirsty and tired.

After walking for a long time, they arrived to the shore of a deep well, and sitting on the edge, they started to discuss if they should jump in it, or not.

One of the frogs reasonably argued that, since the well was overflowing with water, the bottom of the well would be a nice place for them to live peacefully. However the other frog, wiser than its partner, after thinking long and hard about it, said: “That’s all very good, my friend. I have no problema about jumping in. However, if the wáter dries, how would we get out of that well?”.

It’s necessary to meditate and think, before taking any decisión

8: The wind and the sun
The sun and the wind were arguing about which one of the two was the most powerful, and their quarrel was really long, since neither one of them wanted to lose.

Shortly after, they saw a man peacefully walking by, and both agreed to put their powers to test using them against that man.

The wind said: “You’ll see how I remove that man’s clothes, just by throwing myself at him”. And then, he started to blow with all his might. However, as he tried harder and harder, the man clinged to his coat more and more, and continued to walk. The wind got very upset, and discharged rain and snow, but the man didn’t stopped, and clinged to his coat even harder. The wind understood his defeat and finally stopped.

Now it was the sun’s turn, and he smiled, overheating the ground, and the poor man, overjoyed by that sweet heat, took out his coat and put it on his shoulder. At this, the sun said to the wind: “Now you see how with kindness, you accomplish more than with violence?”.

Y así bajar un poco el coro que hacían entre todos, luego de un rato ya estaba agotado de la melodía que cada vez se acercaba mas y mas, entonces decidió tomar cartas en el asunto.

Se asomo y dijo –Bravo! Que coro tan maravilloso, al instante todos los pájaros dejaron de cantar, algunos se subieron a ramas más altas, otros incluso se escondieron adentro del árbol.

Sin embargo el gato les siguió hablando con su voz más dulce, les dijo que era un coro excelente pero necesitaban de un director que el sabía mucho sobre eso gracias a su dueño que era músico.

Los alabó, hasta que los pajaritos embobados bajaron del árbol y el gato inmediatamente se comió al más gordo de todos y su merienda salió totalmente gratis.
