Subject: Fw: Puppy Size


I've seen this before; but I love it - a nice reminder.

>>> Puppy Size

>>> Danielle keeps repeating it over and over again. We've been back to this

>>>
>>> "What is it she keeps asking for?" the volunteer asked.

>>> "Puppy size!" replied the mother.
>>>
>>> "Well, we have plenty of puppies, if that's what she's looking for."
>>>
>>> "I know...we have seen most of them," the mom said in frustration...
>>>
>>> Just then Danielle came walking into the office
>>>
>>> "Well, did you find one?" asked her mom. "No, not this time,"
>>>
>>> Danielle said with sadness in her voice. "Can we come back on the

>>>
>>> The two women looked at each other, shook their heads and laughed.
>>>
>>> "You never know when we will get more dogs. Unfortunately, there's

>>>
>>> Danielle took her mother by the hand and headed to the door. "Don't

>>> Over the next few day s both mom and dad had long conversations with

>>>
>>> They both felt she was being too particular. "It's this weekend or we're

>>> Sure enough, they were the first ones in the shelter on Saturday

>>> Tired of the routine, mom sat in the small waiting room at the end of

>>> Danielle walked slowly from cage to cage, kneeling periodically to take

>>>
>>> One by one she said, "Sorry, you're not the one."
>>>
>>> It was the last cage on this last day in search of the perfect pup.
>>>
>>> The volunteer opened the cage door and the child carefully picked up the

>>>
>>> Mom, that's it! I found the right puppy! He's the one! I know it!" she

>>>
>>> "But it's the same size as all the other puppies you held over the last

>>>
>>> "No not size ---- the sighs. When I held him in my arms, he sighed," she

>>>
>>> "Don't you remember? When I asked you one day what love is, you told me
>>> love depends on the sighs of your heart. The more you love, the bigger

>>>
>>> The two women looked at each other for a moment. Mom didn't know whether
