The Dog and the Hare

After discovering a hare in some bushes, a dog pursued her for a long time, biting her with his teeth if he would take her life and also licking her as if he were playing with another dog. Not knowing what to make of this, the hare stopped running and said, “wish you a show your true colours. If you’re a friend, why do you bite me so hard; if an enemy, why caress me?”

Old Learning: A dubious friend is worse than a true enemy.

New Take

The dog behaved the same way it would have with another dog. But the hare is not used to the behaviour and hence reacted differently. Assess the situation and adapt your behaviour.
