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 puppiesWell said the farmer,
as he rubbed the sweat of 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
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
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
Holding it carefully he handed it to the little boy How much asked the
boy. No charge answered the farmer, There's no charge for love The world is
of people who need someone who understands.

Me too!! I used to love those things! I remember this one time there was a special offer on Coco Pops or Rice Crispies and you got a free puppy in my pocket with it..I made my mum buy loads of boxes just so I could root around for the toy.
I never had a dog when I was ickle, I used to live by the beach, So I would always be on it playing with dog walker's doggies. I was desperate for one, but my dad never said yes ....even after I gave him puppy dog eyes and tried manipulating him for 10 years.

My pup's called Ozzy, he's a lab. What sorts are Pepsi and Lady? My mam has a little puppy here too, but it's not the same as having my Oz-ama bin laden [I give him the wierdest nicknames :eek: ] here. He is growing so fast aswell sobbbbb
