De cane et ovibus


I'm using some new crossword puzzle software (online, fast, easy) to create new puzzles to go with the new Aesop's fables I'm posting at

Today's fable at Latin Via Fables is De Cane oves domini sui occidente, a quo suspensus est: The Dog who slew his master's sheep and was hanged by him. You can visit the Latin Via Fables page for this fable to see the Latin text, English translation and some grammar help.

Word List. Here is an alphabetical word list of the Latin words included in the puzzle:
amicitia, aperte, canis, cibus, dignus, grex, hostis, inimicus, laedere, longe, lupus, magis, mors, ovile, ovis, palam, pastor, potius, punire, species
