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

he

>Holding it carefully he handed it to the little boy. "How much?" asked
