M0373 (not in Perry). Source: Camerarius 389. This fable is not in Perry’s catalog, although it is found in the Panchatantra tradition. For another story about acting in haste, with fatal consequences, see the story of the two doves, #520. For a story about a dog who did kill his master’s son, see #372.
