Shoplifting Dog Never Learns From His Mistakes African Folklore


Shoplifting Dog Never Learns From His Mistakes African FolkloreDog and Goat are travelling together. Whenever they come to a town, they slip in and steal some food to eat. Goat loves to steal and eat cassava; Dog, loves to steal and eat any type of meat.

On finding them, the people of the town beat them with big clubs, and drive them out of town for stealing. Goat never opens his mouth, but Dog always howls loudly.

Finally, Goat loses patience with Dog, and asks, "Why do you howl every time you are beaten?"

Dog answers, "Because it hurts me!"


Goat says, "The beatings mean nothing and do not hurt me! I intend to steal again!” But, if the beatings hurt you, why don't you stop stealing!"
