Poster: Dog and Donkey

An ass was never cut out for a lapdog.
(English proverb)

The source for the proverb is English Proverbs and Proverbial Phrases by William Carew Hazlitt (GoogleBooks), based on the Aesop's fable about the donkey and the pet dog: the donkey was jealous of the lavish attention bestowed on the pet dog and then, when he acted like the dog, he got into terrible trouble. The poster is made with AutoMotivator. The illustration is by Benjamin Rabier at Flickr.
