Puppies on Sale

Shared by: R. Hundoo.

A   farmer had some puppies he needed to sell. He painted a sign advertising the  4 pups and set about nailing it to  a post on the edge of his yard. As he was driving the last nail into the post, he felt a tug on his overalls. He looked down into the eyes of a little boy.

“Mister,” he said, “I want to buy one of your puppies.”

“Well,” said the farmer, as he rubbed the sweat off the   back of his neck, “These puppies come from fine parents and cost a good deal of   money.”

The boy dropped his head for a   moment.  Then   reaching deep into his pocket, he pulled out  a  handful of change and held it up  to the  farmer.

“I’ve got thirty-nine cents.  Is that enough to take a look?”

“Sure,” said the   farmer.  And with that he let out a whistle. “Here,   Dolly!” he called.

Out from the doghouse and down the ramp ran Dolly followed by  four little balls of fur.

The little boy   pressed his face against the chain link fence.  His eyes danced with delight. As the dogs made their way to the fence, the little boy noticed something else stirring inside the doghouse.

Slowly another little ball appeared this one noticeably smaller.  Down the ramp it   slid.  Then in a somewhat awkward manner, the little   pup began hobbling toward the others,   doing its best to catch up…

“I want that one,”   the little boy said, pointing to the   runt.   The   farmer knelt down at the boy’s side and   said, “Son, you don’t want that   puppy.  He will never be able to run and play with you   like these other dogs would.”

With that the little boy stepped back from the fence, reached down, and began rolling up one leg of his trousers. In doing so he revealed a steel brace running down both sides of his leg attaching itself to a   specially made shoe.

Looking back up at the farmer, he said, “You see sir, I don’t run too well myself, and he will need   someone who understands.”

With tears in   his eyes, the farmer reached down and   picked up the little pup.

Holding   it carefully he handed it to the little boy. “How much?” asked the little boy…  “No charge,” answered the farmer, “There’s no charge for love.”

The world is full of  people who need someone who understands.
