The story of the boy who wanted to buy a puppy.

The story of the boy who wanted to buy a puppy.

I came across this short story of boy who wanted to buy a puppy, but he wanted a certain puppy.  I found this to be a very interesting and unbelievable lesson to be learned, from this young man. I just had to share it, with all of us here.......

One day an eight-year-old boy went to the pet store with his dad to buy a puppy.  The store manager showed them to a pen where five little furry balls huddled together.

After a while, the boy notice one of the litter all by itself in an adjacent pen.  The boy asked. "Why is that puppy all alone?"

The manager explained, "That puppy was born with a bad leg and would be crippled for life, so we're going to have to put him to sleep,"

"You're going to kill this little puppy?" the boy said sadly while patting it.  "You have to realize that this puppy would never be able to run and play with a boy like you."

After a short conversation with his boy, the dad told the manager that they wanted to buy the puppy with the bad leg.  "For the same amount of money, you could have one of the 'healthy' ones, Why do you want this one?"


To answer the manager's question, the boy bent over and pulled up the pants on his right leg, exposed the brace underneath and said, "Mister, l want this one because l understand what he's going through."

How many of us would have reacted like this young man, strange that things have to happened to us before we can accept people for who and what they are.....we do have a lot to learn from one another..
