    My response usually is, 'much more than you could possibly afford'...with my nose up in the air. That shuts 'em up pretty good.

    I normally tell people "They are worth every cent" and then say none of your bee wax :-)

    I thoroughly agree, it is very rude I feel. Every once in awhile I have a person who really is looking to get a bulldog, but that is not the normal. Usually they ask what kind of dog it is, and then where she came from and how much.
    I was so aggrivated one day at Petsmart I replied to "How much did that cost?" with this; I pointed to my 20 yr old son and said, 'he was $32,000 strait out of the hospital" pointing to my 15 yr old "She was $26,000 before getting her home from the hospital" and the baby (pointing to Kippah) was far less than that. All three are worth every cent!"
    I wanted to point to their children and ask how much they cost, but I gave up and turned away.....rude? yeah, I was, but it is so irritating.
    My kids are making me work on my people skills

    I think they just ask ball park ranges. I just tell them from 1500-4000

    I have only had Hulk for 4 months, and it seems to be the first question out of everyone's mouth at Petsmart when we go shopping. I realize this is a very sought after and high quality breed. However, bringing up money to a stranger seems to be in bad taste to me. Even if they are a prospective owner. Just my 2c... but I do get tired of being asked... after only this short period of time.

    It's very rude IMO, especially if it's a stranger in passing. I can say I haven't had anyone ask me yet how much Wilson cost except for one of my bosses, and I sidelined my response with saying, "a lot." They both caught my drift that I wasn't sharing that info with either one of them.

    Interesting thread, as I've been thinking about this and how I plan to respond. My family and friends will most likely ask and they are very vocal about spending money on pets. Since I own my own business, I'm just going to say a client gave it to me as payment.
