They which they could live together forever. One day an idea stroke them that to tie each other with a rope. In this way nobody will be able to apart us. As this idea came to their mind they took a rope and the frog tied one end of the rope with his own leg and the other end with the mouse's foot. After doing this their problem was solved. Now both of the friends were happy. The one who missed the other held the rope and pulled towards him. In this way the friend on the other end of the rope knew that he was being missed.One day the frog went down into the deep water of the pond in search of food. But he totally forgot that one of his feet was tied to the foot of mouse with the rope. Due to the depth the rope stretched more and resultantly the mouse also fell down into the water. But the mouse did not know how to swim. As he fell into the water, he dived and in  no time he drowned and left his companion forever. When the frog thought that his foot was tied to the mouse's foot with a rope he immediately felt for his friend. He knew that the mouse did not know swimming.
