The unwanted puppy

black and white puppy

As a child, I always wanted to have a dog as my pet but mother always rejected it and she had her own special reasons for it apart from the ones which relate to taking care of the dog. I knew she loved me and would not mind if I brought a street dog and try to tame it. But she was correct in her own ways.
Once I was playing outside and found a newspaper advertisement for the sale of puppies. I immediately asked my mother to dial the number and inquire about the price. My mom was hesitant but looking to my long demand for the puppy she called up.
She had already inquired about the price and all of the puppies were priced somewhere between Rs 1000 to Rs 1500. Hence she deliberately told me that she just had a budget of Rs 800 and we would buy a puppy only if we get it at that price.
Still, we went to see the puppies. I was too much happy to see the puppies. There were in total 7 puppies to be sold but only 6 were shown to us. I asked the owner about the 7th puppy. He told me that it was not appropriate for me and hence he didn’t show it to me.
This made me more curious about the 7th puppy. What was so ” inappropriate” about it? I just wanted to know. So I pressed hard on the thing that I won’t buy any puppy unless I see the 7th one.
As such too the owner did not agree to bargain and it was impossible to get a puppy for Rs 800.
At last a lady came out with the 7th puppy. It was dark black in colour and was limping. I immediately inquired about its price and the owner told me that he would give it to me just for Rs 100. My mom did not wish to take one more liability home so she did not agree. And we both went home.
At night, I could not sleep properly. The thought of my black beauty who limped never left my mind and I decided to purchase it from my pocket money. I found that I had just Rs 30 in my pocket money.
With those Rs 30, I went to the owner and told him that I wanted to purchase the limping puppy but I had just part of the money and I would remit the balance money as an when I get it.
The owner was happy and told me that I could keep it for free. He did not need money for that puppy as it could not run like others.
 I was a bit disappointed now and said, ‘I don’t want you to give the puppy to me free of cost. That little dog is worth every bit as much as all the other dogs and I’ll pay full price. In fact, I’ll give you  Rs 30 now, and Rs 70 a month  later’
 He asked me that was money the only consideration why I had shortlisted the limping puppy?
He thought that I could manage only ‘that much’ with all the money I had and therefore I was eager to have it. But the case was different.
To his surprise, I reached down and rolled up my pant leg to reveal a badly twisted, crippled left leg supported by a big metal brace. I looked up at the  owner and softly replied, ‘Well, I don’t run so well myself, and the little puppy will need someone who understands!’”
My mom had to accept me because I was her child but the little puppy deserved love inspite of the problems it had. It deserved understanding, care, and unconditional acceptance.
He was in tears after he came to know as to why I had selected ” the black limping dog”.
We always need someone who cares for us and understands us.
Who could better value and understand a limping puppy rather than a boy who himself had a crippled leg supported by a metal brace???

  1. Its like you learn my mind! You appear to understand so much approximately this, such as you
    wrote the ebook in it or something. I believe that you just can do
    with some % to pressure the message house a bit, but instead of that, that is great blog.
    A great read. I will certainly be back. Incredible!
    This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a completely different
    topic but it has pretty much the same page layout and design.
    Wonderful choice of colors! What’s up, I read your blog regularly.
    Your story-telling style is witty, keep it up! http://nissan.com/

  2. I like what you guys are usually up too. This type of clever work and exposure!
    Keep up the terrific works guys I’ve incorporated
    you guys to my blogroll. I’ve been browsing online greater than 3 hours lately, yet I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like
    yours. It’s pretty price enough for me. In my opinion, if
    all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet might be a lot more helpful than ever before.
    I absolutely love your blog.. Great colors & theme.
    Did you build this web site yourself? Please reply back
    as I’m planning to create my very own site and would love to find out where
    you got this from or what the theme is named.

    Thanks! http://house.com/

  13. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
    penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% positive.

    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers
