"Mother Dog met Mother Hen and her newborn chicks. She thought that Mother Hen would be tired and would need some rest. Mother Hen told Mother Dog that she only laid eggs, and her chicks were hatched from the eggs so she did not need any rest! Mother Dog did not believe it because she had a different experience in giving birth to her puppy. Mother Hen tried to help her understand but it was all in vain. As a result, Mother Dog and her puppy lived in fear all day because of their stubbornness."
