Puppy Love

This is a story I heard from a good friend of mine.

A man had just put up a sign "Puppies for Sale" when a little boy appeared with great excitement in his eyes. He was waiting patiently as the man finish putting up the sign and asked, "Uncle, how much does it cost for a puppy?"

The man said, "About 40 to 50 dollars?"

On hearing this, the boy face suddenly became sad for a second. He was about to go but suddenly turned around and asked, "Can I see the puppies?"

The man said, "Sure!" and whistled. Just then the door open and a lady came out followed by several puppies. The boy's eye lit up as he saw them. One by one the puppies came out. While he was playing with the puppies, one last puppy came out with a slight limp. Apparently, the puppy was born without one hip bone.

The boy saw the last puppy and immediately asked the man, "How much for that puppy?"

The man said, "You don't want that one, he is crippled? If you really want him, I will give it to you for free?"

Just then, the boy got really angry and shouted, "No, you can't give that puppy for free, I will pay full price for it? Here is two dollars, I will pay the rest of the money to you on a weekly basis until he is fully paid for?"

But the man, kept saying, "Ohh No, you don't want him, He cannot run, can't you see he is limping? You will probably hate him after one to two weeks and will want to return him."

The boy said, "No, I won't. I can run fast either!" Then he pulled up his pant to reveal a prosthetic leg.
