Description:Story about a dog and a cat. (Introduced story, not traditional.) The two of them went to cut posts for their house, and as they walked home the cat kept laughing at the dog's anus. It wouldn't tell the dog why it was laughing, so the dog chased it up a tree. It couldn't climb up after it so it pretended to be dead. The dog cat an ant, then a fire ant to bite it, to see if it was really dead. They reported that it was, so the cat climbed down, but then the dog chased after it, caught it and bit it to death. Speaker aged 6. Audio recording has been transcribed, time-aligned, translated and glossed.
