Puppy size..

Get the kleenex ready! My sis sent me this...enjoy!

Puppy Size... This is one of the neatest stories you will ever hear. You will

know precisely what this little girl is talking about at the end (you'll want

to share this one with your loved ones and special friends)!

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

this animal shelter at least five times. It has been weeks now since

we started all of this,' the mother told the volunteer. 'What is it she

keeps asking for?' the volunteer asked. 'Puppy size!' replied the


'Well, we have plenty of puppies, if that's what she's looking for.

' 'I know... we have seen most of them,' the mum said in

frustration... Just then Danielle came walking into the office

'Well, did you find one?' asked her mum. 'No, not this time,

'Danielle said with sadness in her voice 'Can we come back

on the weekend?'

The 2 women looked at each other, shook their heads and

laughed 'You never know when we will get more dogs.

Unfortunately, there's always a supply,' the volunteer said.

Danielle took her mother by the hand and headed to the door.

'Don't worry, I'll find one this weekend,' she said.Over the next

few days both Mum and Dad had long conversations with her.

They both felt she was being too particular. 'It's this weekend

or we're not looking any more,' Dad finally said in frustration.

'We don't want to hear anything more about puppy size, either,'

Mom added. Sure enough, they were the first ones in the shelter

on Saturday morning. By now Danielle knew her way around,

so she ran right for the section that housed the smaller dogs.

Tired of the routine, mum sat in the small waiting room at the

end of the first row of cages. There was an observation window

so you could see the animals during times when visitors weren't


Danielle walked slowly from cage to cage, kneeling periodically

to take a closer look. One by one the dogs were brought out and

she held each one. One by one she said, 'Sorry, but 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 dog and held it closely.

This time she took a little longer. 'Mum, that's it! I found

the right puppy! He's the one! I know it!' She screamed

with joy. 'It's the puppy size!'

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

the last few weeks,' Mum said. 'No not size... The sighs.

When I held him in my arms, he sighed,' she said.

'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 sigh!'

The 2 women looked at each other for a moment.

Mum didn't know whether to laugh or cry. As she stooped

down to hug the child, she did a little of both.

'Mum, every time you hold me, I sigh. When you and Daddy

come home from work and hug each other, you both sigh.

I knew I would find the right puppy if it sighed when I

held it in my arms,' she said. Then, holding the puppy

up close to her face, she said, 'Mum, he loves me.

I heard the sighs of his heart!'

Close your eyes for a moment and think about the love

that makes you sigh. I not only find it in the arms of my

loved ones, but in the caress of a sunset, the kiss of the

moonlight and the gentle brush of cool air on a hot day.

They are the sighs of God. Take the time to stop and listen;

you will be surprised at what you hear. 'Life is not measured

by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our

breath away.'

Hope your life is filled with Sighs !!!
