  There once lived an old dog(狗). When he was young(年轻的), he was a great hunter and his master loved him very much.

Now, though, he was becoming slow(迟缓的) and weak(虚弱的).

然而,现在他正在变得又迟缓又孱弱。

One day, the old dog and his master(主人) were walking in the forest(森林).

一天,这只老狗和他的主人行走在森林里。

The dog saw a pig(猪) and chased it. He caught the pig by its ear(耳朵), but his teeth were weak and the pig got away.

这只狗看到了一只猪并追捕它。他抓到了猪的耳朵,但是他的牙齿软弱,猪逃跑了。

“My teeth were much stronger(强壮的) when I was young,” thought the dog. “I hope my master isn’t mad.”

“当我年轻时,我的牙齿强大多了。”这只狗心里嘀咕着。“我希望我的主人不要生气。”

When the master saw the pig run away, he was angry(生气的). “You useless dog!” he shouted. “What will my family(家人) eat tonight?”

当主人看到猪跑掉了,他生气了。“你这只没用的狗!”他喊叫到。“我家人今晚吃什么?”

The dog was sad. “Master,” he said, “it is not my fault(错误) that I’m old. For many years, I’ve helped you to feed your family. Am I worth nothing to you now?”

这只狗伤心起来。“主人,”他说,“我变老并不是我的错,过去多年,我都帮助你供养你的家人,现在我对你来说真的是一点价值都没有吗?”

The master realized that he was wrong. “You’re right,” he said. “I shouldn’t blame(责备)you for being old. I should praise you for all your years of service(服务).”

主人意识到他错了。“你是对的,”他说,“我不应该责备你变老了,我应该为你多年的服务而赞扬你。”
