A Little Boy Teaches The Shop Owner A Lesson When He Wants The Crippled Dog

Many of us desire to have a dog as a companion and a friend since we are children. Even some of us will go out of our way to ensure we have one in our family.

When we have such a loving pet, they become more than just animals. They become part of the family. A young boy in the following fictional story felt the same way when he wanted to buy a puppy.

The store owner tacked a sign above his door that read “Puppies For Sale.” Signs like that have a way of attracting children, and sure enough, a little boy appeared beneath the sign. „How much are you going to charge for the puppies?””” he asked.

“Anywhere from $30 to $50,” replied the store owner.

He reached into his pocket and pulled out some change. “I have $2.37,” he replied. “Can I look at them?”

The store owner smiled and whistled as Lady came running out of the kennel, followed by five tiny balls of fur.

One puppy was considerably behind the others. He immediately pointed to the lagging, limping puppy and asked, “What’s wrong with that little dog?”.”””

The owner of the store explained that the veterinarian examined the puppy and discovered it didn’t have a hip socket. It always limped. It was always lame.

He became excited. “That is the puppy I want to buy.”

“No, you don’t want to buy that little dog,” the store owner replied. “I’ll give him to you if you really want him.”

The little boy became quite upset. “I don’t want you to give him to me,” he said, pointing a finger at the store owner. It is worth every bit as much as all the other dogs, and I will pay full price for it. I will pay you $2.37 now, and 50 cents a month until he’s paid for.”

The store owner countered, “You really don’t want to buy this little dog. He will never be able to run, jump, and play with you like the other puppies.”

The little boy rolled up his pants leg to discover a badly twisted, crippled left leg supported by a big metal brace. The store owner looked up at him and softly replied, “Well, I don’t run well myself, and that little puppy needs someone who understands!”.”
