Puppies for Sale

A store owner was tacking a sign above his door that read “Puppies for Sale”. A little boy appeared under the store owner’s sign. “How much are you going to sell the puppies for?” he asked. The store owner replied, “Anywhere from $30 to $50.” The little boy reached in his pocket and pulled out some change. “I have $2.35,” he said. “Can I please look at them?”

The store owner smiled and whistled and out of the kennel came the mother dog, who ran down the aisle of his store followed by five teeny, tiny balls of fur. One puppy was lagging considerably behind. Immediately the little boy singled out the lagging, limping puppy and said, “What’s wrong with that little dog?”

The store owner explained that the veterinarian had examined the little puppy and had discovered it didn’t have a hip socket. It would always limp. The little boy became excited. “I want to buy that little puppy.” The store owner said, “No, you don’t want to buy that little dog. If you really want him, I’ll just give him to you.”

The little boy got quite upset and said, “I don’t want you to give him to me. That little dog is worth every bit as much as the other dogs and I’ll pay full price. In fact, I’ll give you $2.35 now, and 50 cents a month until I have him paid for.” The store owner countered, “But he is never going to run and jump and play with you like the other puppies.”

The little boy reached down and rolled up his pant leg to reveal a badly twisted, crippled left leg supported by a metal brace. He looked up at the store owner and replied softly, “Well, I don’t run so well myself, and the little puppy will need someone who understands.”
