Aesop's Fables by  J. H. Stickney


 

 

THE DOG AND THE HARE

A
DOG once gave chase to a Hare. Having not long since made a good meal, the Dog was not hungry, and so was not in haste to end the sport by killing the Hare.


[Illustration]

At times he would snap at his prey, and at times play with him and lick [120] him with his tongue, till at last the bewildered Hare cried:

"Pray tell me, are you an enemy or a friend? If a friend, why do you bite me so? and if an enemy, why do you caress me?"

No one can trust a person who is neither the one thing nor the other.
