Image: Canis Venaticus et Molossi


M0352 - M0353 - M0354
353. Canis Venaticus et Molossi. Ceperat venaticus canis leporem. Eum, quamvis esuriens, gloriose iactans verbis celeritatem suam, detulit domum ad molossos, custodes gregis et aedium; illi enimvero leporem eripuere ostentatori et inter se discerpsere.



M0353 (not in Perry). Source: Camerarius 438. This fable is not in Perry’s catalog. Compare the debate between the house dog and the hunting dog, #383.
