“The shop owner put a sign over his door that read: ‘Puppies for sale.’
Signs like these always have a way of attracting young children, and no wonder the boy saw the sign and approached the owner; ‘How much will you sell the puppies for?’ He asked.
The store owner responded, ‘Anywhere from $ 30 to $ 50.’
The little boy pulled the change out of his pocket. ‘I have $ 2.37,’ he said. ‘May I have a look at them?’
The store owner smiled and whistled. Out of the cage came Lady, who went downstairs with her shop followed by five small balls, of wool.
One puppy was far behind. Soon the little boy picked up the failing puppy, and the paralyzed man said, ‘What’s wrong with that dog?’
The shop owner explained that the veterinarian examined the puppy and found that it did not have a hip socket. It would always be lame. It will always be disabled.
The little boy became excited. ‘That’s the puppy I want to buy.’
The shop owner said, ‘No, you don’t want to buy that dog. If you really want him, I’ll just give him to you. ‘
The boy was very angry. He looked straight into the eyes of the store owner, pointed to his finger, and said;
‘I don’t want you to give it to me. That little dog is just as important as all the other dogs and I will pay the full price. In fact, I will give you $ 2.37 now, and 50 cents a month until I pay him back. ‘
The store owner said, ‘You don’t really want to buy this dog. He won’t be able to run and jump and play with you like other puppies. ‘
To her surprise, the little boy reached down and rolled up his panties to reveal a twisted left leg, supported by a large metal bar. He looked up at the shop owner and replied calmly, ‘Well, I’m not running very well, and the little puppy will need someone who understands!’
