    I always like "how much did your kid cost?"

    @desertskybulldogs - LOL! I have to try this one


    I've gotten this question many times. I always say "If you want a healthy dog, they aren't cheap"

    It bothers me, and I do find it very rude that people ask. But I'm never rude in return. Everyone is raised with different values.

    With Stiggy I say we got him on sale, which is true in a way, but never really give a straight answer. I also add, it really depends on the breeder. With Punkin, we just say he's from a friend and don't really know if he's purebred or not, which is true too.

    I had to mention to my bf not to mention the price too seeing there's some sketchy strangers here. But if they're good friends of mine or have seen them around the neighbourhood with the doggies and make small talk every time we see each other, then we don't mind telling the truth. But those people rarely ask anyways, which is nice.

    Tell them "When you're rich you don't think about such trivial matters"

    Or you can say enough that I had to put him on my home owners insurance! Actually I seriously considered this!

    I get that all the time!!! I do find it terribly off putting!

    I always just tell them "nothing compared to the vet bills coming up in the near future."

    They usually go on about how cute she is after that.

    Hi! I was very surprised to read that you guys get the same question in the US as I get in Argentina!!

    I've found the best answer ever: "IT WAS A GIFT, so I can't tell you really how much". It has worked really well for me as I feel very uncomfortable too!!!
