"A fox walked through a forest and became very thirsty so he stopped to drink a pail of milk. The woman who owned the pail chopped his tail off and told him that he could have it back when he returned her milk. So he set off to find some milk but everyone that he asked for help was only willing to give it to him if he would do something for them.

First it was a cow, then the field, followed by the stream, the fair maiden, a peddler, a hen, and finally a miller. The miller felt sorry for him so he gave him the grain that the hen wanted and he started back.

Once he has delivered and picked up all of his promises he returned to the woman with a pail of milk. She in turn sewed his tail back on."
