Much wants more loses all ( Moral Story)

Dog and his shadow image
Once there was a dog who found a good big piece of cheese. The dog was so happy to get such nice food for his lunch. '' I should go to a nice and calm place and enjoy the cheese'', he thought.

He carried the piece of cheese in his mouth and went on. While he was going beside a stream the dog saw his reflection in the stream's water. 

Oh! There is another dog like me, he is also carrying a piece of cheese. I will have two pieces of cheese if I get that piece too.''
Thinking that he opened his mouth to catch the piece in the water, and as soon as the dog opened his mouth ,the piece of cheese that he held fell into the water. 

Ah! Due to his greed and the urge to get another piece the greedy dog lost his piece of cheese too.   
As they say '' Much wants more loses all.''
