英文寓言故事The Greedy Dog贪婪的狗
    作者:张恒
    来源:中学生英语·阅读与写作    Once there lived a dog. He was very greedy. There were many times that he had to pay for his greed. Each time the dog promised himself, “I have learnt my lesson. Now I will never be greedy again.” But he soon forgot his promises and was as greedy as ever.
      从前有一条狗,它非常贪婪。有很多次它都不得不为自己的贪婪付出代价。每次它都和自己保证道:“我已经吸取教训了。现在我永远不会再贪心了。”但它很快就忘记了自己的承诺,一如既往地贪婪。
      One afternoon, the dog was terribly hungry. He decided to look for something to eat. Just outside his house, there was a bridge. “I will go and look for food on the other side of the bridge. The food there is definitely better,” he thought to himself.
      一天下午,这只狗非常饿,它决定去找点东西吃。就在它家门外,有一座桥。“我要去桥的另一边找食物。那里的食物肯定更好。”它自言自语道。
      He walked across the wooden bridge and started sniffing around for food. Suddenly, he spotted a bone lying at a distance. “Ah, I am in luck. This looks a delicious bone,” he said.
      它走过木桥,开始嗅闻食物。突然间,它发现了远处有一根骨头。“啊,我很幸运。这骨头看起来很可口。”它说道。
      Without wasting any time, the hungry dog picked up the bone and was just about to eat it, when he thought, “Somebody might see here with this bone and then I will have to share it with them. So, I had better go home and eat it.” Holding the bone in his mouth, he ran towards his house.
      没有浪费任何时间,这只饥饿的狗就叼起骨头,正准备吃时它想到:“可能会有其他的狗看到这个骨头,然后我就得与它们分享。所以,我最好回家再吃。”它把骨头含在嘴里,向自己的房子跑去。
      While crossing the wooden bridge, the dog looked down into the river. There he saw his own reflection. The foolish dog mistook it for another dog. “There is another dog in the water with bone in its mouth,” he thought. Greedy, as he was, he thought, “How nice it would be to snatch that piece of bone as well. Then, I will have two bones.”
      穿过木桥的时候,狗朝下看了看河水。它看到了自己在河水中的倒影。愚蠢的狗把它误认为是另一只狗。“水里有一只狗,嘴里也有根骨头。”它想。它很贪心,心想:“要是能夺到那块骨头该多好。那我就有两根骨头了。”
      So, the greedy dog looked at his reflection and growled. The reflection growled back, too. This made the dog angry. He looked down at his reflection and barked, “Woof!Woof!” As he opened his mouth, the bone in his mouth fell into the river. Then the greedy dog realized that what he had seen was nothing but his own reflections and not another dog. But it was too late. He had lost the piece of bone because of his greed. Now he had to go hungry.
      所以,貪婪的狗看着倒影咆哮起来。倒影也对着它吠。这让狗很生气。它低头看着自己的倒影,叫道:“汪!汪!”它一张开嘴,嘴里的骨头就掉进了河里。那只贪婪的狗才意识到,它看到的只不过是自己的倒影,而不是另一只狗。但为时已晚。它因贪婪而失去了那块骨头,现在不得不挨饿了。 英文寓言故事
