The human owner sends the dog and pig to the field to work. The pig works all day and then rest, while the dog does no work until late in the afternoon. When the owner comes back, however, the dog is working and so the owner decided to invite the dog to live in the house and not the pig. nst-hkn_20120229_03_SM_H4n_Khithong_DogAndTigerStoryExplanation.wav; Duration 3’30”; Explaining the meaning of the story of the dog and the tiger. Because they quarreled so much, they decided to live separately. The human being suggested that the tiger and dog live together, but the tiger said that the dog should not follow him, that is why the dog stayed back. The tiger went far away to live in the jungle. That is why today humans hit the dog by stick, even though it stays with humans and follows humans. Dogs bark at tigers because they were enemies.
