Why was the bear looking sorry for himself in the evening? Why did the cook get angry with her mistress?

The bear had been chained for the whole Sunday afternoon and was lonely without his mistress. This is why he was looking so.

The cook got angry with her mistress because she was scolding the bear for no fault. He had behaved very well during the absence of his mistress yet the lady was angry with him. The cook was unaware of the fact that the lady had met a bear on her way and she had taken it to be her bear.
