They Call It Puppy Love

 A farmer had some puppies he needed to sell. He painted a sign advertising the pups and set about nailing it to a post
 on the edge of his yard.

As he was driving the last nail into the post, he felt a tug on his overalls. He looked down into the eyes of little boy…

‘Mister,’ he said, ‘I want to buy one of your puppies.’

‘Well,’ said the farmer…
As he rubbed the sweat off the back of his neck, ‘These puppies come from fine parents and cost a good deal of money.’

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 farmer.

I’ve got thirty-nine cents is that enough to take a look? 

‘Sure,’ said the farmer…
And with that he let out a whistle.
‘Here, Dolly!’ he called.

Out from the doghouse and down the ramp ran
Dolly followed by the little balls of fur…

The Little boy waited by the fence, his eyes danced with delight as the dogs made their way to him.

 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 a somewhat awkward manner, the little pup began hobbling toward the others, doing its best to catch up but needing to sit down now and again.

‘I want that one,’ the little boy said, pointing to the runt. The farmer knelt down at the boy’s side and said, ‘Son, you don’t want that puppy. He will never be able to run and play with you like these other dogs would.

‘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.

Looking back up at the farmer, he said…
‘You see sir, I don’t run too well myself, and he will need someone who cares and understands.’

With tears in his eyes, the farmer reached down and 

 picked up the little pup


Holding it carefully he handed it to the little boy.

‘How much?’ asked the little boy. ‘No charge,’ answered the farmer…

 ‘There’s no charge for Love. The world is full of people who need someone who understands, someone who is honest enough to be real instead of wearing a mask.

Who accepts us with our weaknesses but warns us when we are heading into trouble or corrects us when we are in error, is there for us when we are in need of help and when we are in trouble they stand by us.

 Friendship doesn’t demand it Encourages, it Forgives, it Uplifts, it’s Kind, it’s Compassionate, it’s Understanding, it’s never cruel, it’s Honest, it’s Loyal, it’s Respectful, it doesn’t delight in evil and True Friendship never disappears or fails.

It’s Love – it’s God’s Love  

He is our Best Friend and always was even

 when we didn’t know Him.

      Now I’m not so sure Ron about a Malteses’ love being without conditions but I’m sure if I didn’t feed Monty I would not be the flavour of the month but he sure is cute and cuddly and always wanting to Lick especially my Ice cream.

      Christ-mas Love Anne.
