It's a busy day along the city sidewalks as an elderly pet-shop owner hangs a sign, "Puppies For Sale." Later, he's in his back room when he hears the shop bell jingle signaling a customer has entered. It's a lad in a baseball cap inquiring about the puppies. Four puppies bound in behind their mom, followed by a lagging fifth one with a congenital hip problem. That's the puppy the boy chooses, and he puts some crumpled bills and loose coins on the counter as a down payment. The man tries to dissuade the boy from taking the imperfect pup, but the lad insists and gets down on the floor to play with his new pet. The owner gets a surprise - and a lesson.
This is a wonderful little movie about a pet store owner who sells a puppy to a little boy and experiences a little more than he expected to. Anyone who has seen My Dog Skip will find that this one has the same kind of sweet charm that is so rare in family movies these days. Why can't more full length family movies be like this? I saw Puppies for Sale at atomfilms.com, where it is available for viewing.
