But Bremen was too far off to be reached in one day and towards evening they came to a wood where they determined to pass the night.  The donkey and the dog lay down under a large tree, the cat got up among the branches, and the rooster flew up to the top, as that was the safest place for him.  Before he went to sleep he looked all round him to the four points of the compass and perceived in the distance a little light shining, and he called out to his companions that there must be a house not far off, as he could see a light.  So the donkey said, »We had better get up and go there, for these are uncomfortable quarters.«  The dog began to fancy a few bones, not quite bare, would do him good.
