> A farmer had some puppies he needed to sell. He painted a sign advertising the 4

> "Well," said the farmer, as he rubbed the sweat of the back of his neck, "These

> handful of change and held it up to the farmer. "I've got thirty-nine cents. Is

> "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 four
> little balls of fur. The little boy pressed his face against the chain link

> "How much?" asked the little boy. "No charge," answered the farmer, "There's no
> charge for love."

"That's sweet" said the boy, as he drop-kicked the puppy into the next field.
