The Pessimistic Dog – Moral Story For Kids
Once a farmer devised a competition between his dog and rabbit, he made a hole in his field and hid a carrot and a bone in it. He wanted to see which animal would find them first.
The rabbit was very cheerful but the dog was pessimistic, and after sniffing around for a bit, he lay down on the ground and began to complain how difficult it was to find a bone in such a big field.
The rabbit dug for hours, whereas the dog kept complaining without budging an inch.
When there was no place left to dig in the whole field, the rabbit dug a tunnel to right under where the dog had been lying all that time. There he found the carrot and the bone.
And this is how the dog lost due to his pessimism!
Moral: A pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity but an optimist sees opportunity in every difficulty.
