Charge for Love


A shop owner had some puppies he wanted to sell. He painted a sign board to advertise his intention of selling the pups that said: ‘Puppies For Sale.’ He set about nailing it on the wall.Boards like this always have a way of attracting young children. As he was driving the last nail into the post, a boy saw the board and started walking towards the shop. He approached the owner and asked, “How much are you going to sell the puppies for?”


The shop owner looked down into the eyes of the little boy. “Well !” said the shop owner,as he wiped the sweat off the back of his neck, “These puppies come from fine parents and cost a good deal of money. So I will charge anywhere from $30 to $50 for each puppy.”


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 shop owner. “I have $2.37.1s that enough to take a look?,” he said.


“Sure,” said the shop owner. 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 an awkward manner, the little pup began hobbling towards others, doing its best to catch up. Immediately the little boy singled out the hobbling and limping

puppy and said, “What’s wrong with that little dog?”


The shop owner explained that a veterinarian had examined the little puppy and discovered that it didn’t have a hip socket. It would always limp. It would always be lame.

“I want that one,” the little boy said, pointing to the lame puppy.

 The shop owner knelt down at the boy’s side and said, “Son, you want that puppy. It will never be able to run and play with you like these other dogs would. So if you really want him, I’1l just give it to you.”


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. To his surprise, the little boy reached down and rolled up the other leg of his trousers also to reveal a badly twisted crippled left leg supported by a big

metal brace.


Looking up at the shop owner, he said, “You see sir, I myself don’t run too well and the poor little puppy will need someone who understands it.”

 With tears in his eyes, the shop owner reached down and picked up the little pup. Holding it carefully he handed it to the little boy.

 “How much?,” said the little boy.


“No charge, asI said earlier,” answered the shop owner. “There can be no charge for love.”

The little boy got quite upset. He looked straight into the store owner’s eyes, and pointing his finger at him and said, “You are right. There is no charge for love but I cannot lower its worth by taking it without charge as if it was less than other puppies because it may not run as fast as them. This little dog is worth every bit as much as all the other dogs. I don’t want you to give him to me free of cost. I’ll pay the full price. I'll give you $2.37 now and 50 cents a month until I have paid in full.''
