A group of animals were preparing to go to a nearby rice field because it was harvest time. It was the custom of the people in the merrymaking. It was to take place after the harvest.
One of the animals, the dog, was too lazy to go with the others. He preferred to sleep instead of looking for something to eat. So when the group departed, he just slept.
When the group came back, each was full and satisfied. They too, enjoyed the merrymaking and the food. Each of them was also carrying some leftovers. The dog who was now so hungry after a long sleep asked each one of the animals for a little food but nobody wanted to give him even a small piece of meat
