Mayank's fables : The hounds and the tiger

  from my Intrinsic Enlightenment

Once a rich man bought a grand bungalow for his vacations and desired to have a royal pet for its safety unlike hounds and mastiffs he had for his other mansions. So he kept a tiger as he found it really majestic. Mighty animal was , obviously , very different. Intruders were frightened to see his face and teeth and paws. When a thief tried to lure him by meatballs like he did earlier with hounds , the beast pounced on him and almost crumbled his leg.

But now, after some time our magnate felt that his royal guard was too different from those hounds in other aspects also. He did not greet the guests the way a labra would do, didn't welter in his feet when he opened the door, neither did he sit & wag his tail when his master had his supper. Instead he would be on with his royal walk , inspecting every object and keeping an eye on every affair. Now this capitalist was really aggrieved with this ungrateful conduct of big cat. Needless to say , he replaced him with a labrador.

Moral : If you set a tiger as a guard , it will only watch your property but wouldn't do the other jobs of a hound. Not because he is not faithful, but because its not his nature.
