    Smile Are you going to breed him?

    So I just wanted to share a funny story.

    We live in the country, but our house sits on a corner with a stop light.
    We normally sit in our rocking chairs in the evening with Pan sitting between us.

    Well one eveing as we where completing our evening ritual, a car was stopped at the light. Now normally we get a lot of stares and people pointing at Pan, but on this particular day the passenger actually rolled down his window and yells...

    "You have a beautiful dog" Which of course we said thanks. But then he adds "Are you going to breed him"

    It was just so random.

    And no, we aren't breeding him - I definitely like being the only girl in his heart!

    i usually always get asked the same. first we'll get a complement on how beautiful our dog(s) are, then they tell me how they've always wanted one, then they ask how much i paid for her, then they ask when i'm going to breed her.

    I had some nutball in the Petco today ask me if Max was male or female. I said, "Male, sort of." lol. Then he immediately said, "I got a female and I want to breed her. You planning on breeding him." I said, "No, I had him neutered when he had entropian surgery. Don't want to pass that trait along." (Really, I was never intending to leave Max intact, but that usually stops the questions. Anyways, he says, "Well, I'd pay you...SOMEthing if you'd stud him out." Hmmm....so I explained in more elementary terms that Max would be no help there. Then he asked me how much did I pay for Max and how much did I think he should charge for bulldog puppies that can't be "papered"

    The whole time, Max kept looking back and forth from me to the guy with this "Why is he talking to you, mommy? He should be talking to me." look on his face.

    When we left, my 8 year old son said, "I don't think it's a very good idea to pick up random boyfriends for your dog at the Petco." Wise beyond his years, that one.

    Geez, people can be so rude sometimes ... and creepy for that matter. I would've been so startled if someone had stopped suddenly and asked that question @PeterPanAndWendy!

    @TandVsMom - Could never have imagine an 8 year old coming up with that. You must be such a proud momma!

    I get asked that from time to time when new folks learn that Bo is a boy and Bea is a girl. I always launch into a semi-prepared statement about "the complicated nature of English Bulldog breeding and how important it is that these dogs are not acquired via back yard breeders or puppy mills due to the complexities involved." I edit my speech based on the person asking, dumbing it down for true morons or adding content for folks who are genuinely interested in English Bulldogs.

    When giggling, squealing young adults come running over to see the dogs, always exclaiming, "Oooo I want one." it's all I can do to keep a look of "here we go again" off of my face. I have learned that these situations -- while sometimes annoying -- are the BEST opportunities to educate about our beloved breed.

    But seriously? There have been times in the Petco where I've wanted to kong someone, Wile E. Coyote style, upside the head with a cast iron skillet. It's these times when I wish with all my heart that stupidity was painful.

    I got asked that by my cousin when my baby was only 8 weeks old. I had to explain to him all the dangers the expense and all the bullies in rescue. He is just not informed and of course didnt listen.
