God then sent the rooster to find out what had happened to the dog. "Cock-a-dawdle-dog!" the rooster reported. "The dog is not coming back!"
When God finished the creation, a new day dawned, and the rooster kept on singing, "Cock-a-dawdle-dog!"

Notes: In the original, the rooster says kookroo koo, kookka radhu, "the dog is not coming."
