So he decided to take the bone back to his home where he could devour it all by himself. As he was crossing the stream, he looked into the water and saw another dog holding a bone in his mouth.
Greedy, as he was, he wanted the other bone also, so he barked at the dog. As he opened his mouth to bark, the bone fell into the water. He lost the bone.
