No Charge

Sister sent this to me and it touched a chord...

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, he 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."

WOW! ok, so very few things get me misty eyed enough to admit. And yep, that would be one of them. I remember my bulldog princess. we went to get her for a show dog and breeding purposes. when we got to the dog farm, she had mange, was not full blooded, and very very abused. and they wanted alot of money for her. after seeing the owners kids kick her several times, I could hear my moms heart break. we paid the money, took her home, and she was the best and most loyal friend I ever had.
That was a great story curious. And even though it wasnt one of your original writings, it fits your kind and loving personality so very well

Thank you, sometimes the beauty of love is so easy to see that we miss it. Thank you for reminding us to keep our eyes open...

Nice! Don't know if it's deja vu, but thought I had seen this exact story elsewhere (another blog?). Regardless, it's worthwhile sharing.

Dasher - Princess was a lucky girl to have had a place in your home, in your family. Hugs to you, babe, I'm sorry you had to lose her like you did.

Manin - you never fail to make me blush with your kind words.

Hedonist - I said, it was forwarded to my e-mail account, so it wouldn't surprise me if it is going around. It's a good story.
