    And animals do not have the capacity to want to be something else. A dog does not know it is a dog.

    So it sounds to me like the purpose of the exercise is to have the student explore the phoniness and futility of trying to be something one is not. At least that is the way I would approach it. And you should know that I am terrible as this sort of thing.

    in class i read an Aesop fable. its about a donkey that wanted to be a dog. But at the end he learns that its better to be donkey than a dog. after reading this i was asked to write a story about someone or animal that wanted to be someone else.

    Dogs are man's friend, certain investigation agencies have dogs, They help in cases. But cats aren't employed, you can now turn this into a story. One cat and dog used to be good friends, but then dog got hired into FBI. They couldn't hangout much and so cat started feeling if it could be a dog and so on @Tahmina What do you think of this?

    Megan the cat and Rufus the dog were best friends. They lived in an condo in New York City.They used to hang out all the time, used to play ball. Have food together, they were the best friends, other dogs and cats were jealous of their friendship....... Rufus was agile and a strong dog, on the other hand Megan was a cute and small cat. One afternoon Rufus was asleep, Megan thought she should get food for both of them. She went to the next block, she had got good food outside a hotel. She was returning, then a group of dogs surrounded her. She got really afraid. @tahmina how's this?

    It too her fews days to get out of this, but she came out to be stronger than before. She started going far for food, it'd take her hours to get food for one time. And she wasn't afraid of anyone . This struggling strengthened her, she was a furious cat now. The dogs which surrounded her few months back, wouldn't even dare to cross her path. She started engaging in fights.

    To spice things up, she was noticed by secret services and FBI :) Both the agencies wanted to hire her, FBI thought Rufus would be able to get her in FBI. But she rejected him badly, she was not that sweet kitty anymore. She chose Secret services, they nicknamed her "Black Widow"

    She saw that Rufus was there, he was in a bad shape. Weak and his ribs were visible. He had changed. She talked to him, he was thrown out of FBI a year back, because he was not the same. That made Megan into thinking, she won't be the same always. Eventually she will grow old, like Rufus she could be thrown out of Secret Services.

    I think you can have conclusion as, Sometimes in life, some things attract us so much, we chase them leaving behind our loved ones, friends and family. Most likely we are able to get them. Only after getting them, we realize that they are not that fulfilling as they seem. We realize that love is the only thing we can keep us and take with us, other things are empty.
