Once upon a time, there lived a king who was malicious and evil. The king had ten wild dogs that he used to torture his enemy, and also any of his servants who made a mistake.

 One day, one of the servants gave his opinion to the king and told him what he was doing with the dogs was wrong. The king did not like that at all. He became angry and ordered that the servant be thrown to the dogs.

 The servant said, “I served you for ten years, and you do this to me? Please give me ten days before throwing me to those dogs!” The king agreed.

In those ten days, the servant went to the guard who looks after the dogs and told him he would like to serve the dogs for the next ten days.

The guard was baffled but agreed, and the servant started feeding the dogs, cleaning for them, bathing them, playing with them and providing all sorts of comfort for the dogs.

When the ten days were over, the king ordered that the servant be thrown to the dogs for his punishment. When he was thrown in, we were all amazed to see the ravenous dogs only licking the feet of the servant!

The king, baffled at what he was seeing, said:

”What has happened to my dogs?”

The servant replied, “I served the dogs for only ten days, and they didn’t forget my service. Yet I served you for a whole ten years and you forgot all, at my first mistake!”

The king realized his mistake and ordered the servant to be set free.
