Once upon a time, there was a dog that wanted to be a servant of a human being, because it felt they were the wisest. It went to the home of a hunter and asked if it could be a servant in his home.
The hunter agreed and the dog became his servant. One day, when the dog was in the forest with the hunter, it heard the birds singing.
In the song, the dog heard the birds saying that there was a lion in the forest, and if the dog and the hunter remained in the forest, the lion would eat them up. The dog told its master what the situation was like in the forest.
“Alas! How have you come to know the language of animals?” asked the hunter.
“I would teach you the language except I fear you will tell other people,” the dog told the hunter.
“Don’t worry, I shall not tell anybody about the language of animals,” said the hunter.
“Okay, let me give you the medicine that will enable you to understand animals’ languages,” said the dog.
The dog removed the wax from its two ears, and then put them in the hunter’s ears. After that, the hunter heard what the birds in the forest were saying.
The hunter became afraid, and told the dog that they should immediately leave the forest before the lion ate them.
