What an idea! Beautiful story! Teary eyed here! Love.
I enjoyed your story very much. You described Timmy's excitement really well. One red ink suggestion: perhaps you could have mentioned that Timmy only had one leg earlier as it came as a shock. Perhaps you could have told how he had lost his leg - maybe when he lost his mother (?)But, well done with this!
Oh, CD, you have gone and done it with this one. Great, original take on the topic and I have a lump in my throat. What a winner!

Fantastic writing and I felt like I was right there with Timmy and Dad. He gave the right puppy the right master. What a joy to read!
I love this article so much! I love man's best friend, and God intended for this relationship long before we ever met. You hit a home-run and then some with this article. Keep great articles like this coming!
You set the scene with a clarity that drew me in, but you brought in a climax that came right out of left field. Beautifully written with a strong leash to prevent it turning too syrupy. Should rate well.
Masterfully written. I rather liked that you didn't tell us the MC was also handicapped until he'd chosen the dog. For me, it gave it a bit more "punch." I love stories about kids and animals, so you already had my vote before the final scene. I'd love to see this develop into something longer. Nice job!
You have the heart of a little child and are able to express that in words. Great job!

You brought out the angelic blessedness of a child's mind and how there thoughts and actions reveal God's Spirit. God bless.
