Default Value of life

Author unknown... found on the internet

A store owner was tacking a sign above his door that read 'Puppies for Sale.' These signs had a weird way of attracting children. And sure enough, a little boy appeared at the sign. "How much are you going to sell those puppies for?" he asked.

The store owner replied "Anywhere from $30-$50." The little boy reached into his pocket and pulled out some change. "I have $2.37, can I have a look at them?" The store owner smiled and whistled and out of the kennel came Lady, 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 man explained that when the puppy was born, the vet had said that it had no hip socket and would limp for the rest of its life. The little boy got really excited and said "That's the puppy I want to buy!"

The man replied "No, you don't want to buy that little dog. If you really want him, I'll give him to you." The little boy got quite upset. He looked straight into the man's eyes, pointing his finger and said, "I don't want you to give him to me. He is worth every bit as much as the other dogs and I'll pay the full price. In fact, I'll give you $2.37 now and 50 cents every month until I have him paid for."

The man countered, "You really don't want to buy this puppy. He is never going to be able to run, jump and play like other puppies!" To this the little boy reached down and rolled up his pant leg to reveal a badly twisted, crippled left leg supported by a big metal brace.He looked up at the man and said, "Well, I don't run so well myself, and the little puppy will need someone who understands."

IN LIFE, IT DOESN'T MATTER WHO YOU ARE, BUT WHETHER SOMEONE APPRECIATES YOU FOR WHAT YOU ARE, ACCEPTS YOU AND LOVES YOU UNCONDITIONALLY.

A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks away.

I've seen this one, and it's one of my favorites. Thanks so much for posting it.

me too..i don't know where i saw it, but it was a long time ago..we had a gimpy lab puppy at the kennels, and a one legged man insisted on paying full price for him, same went for a dog with one eye, the ey was damaged when someone had taken the puppy home and introduced it to their other dog..(a fight) anyway l love stories like these especially when they corralate with something that has happened in my own past..makes the meaning all the more possible!
