I have had terrible thoughts that people would take Herman mainly because every one stops their cars to say hi or tell me they have a bulldog (or in some cases ask me if he's dead when he's just lying limp on the ground and wont get up). QUOTE]
LOL. Too funny.
It really isn't anyone's business what you paid for anything or any pet, especially a stranger! I sell at antique shows and often people come back to pick up large pieces. I always take the price off and put a sold tag on the item. So many people still open doors/drawers and fondle it and ask how much it sold for. Instead of saying NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS I tactfully tell them a price of about 1/10th of the actual sale price and watch them turn green with envy!
Depends on who it is and how they ask. If in general I feel that it is with legitimate interest in the breed I tell them that my researched show in our area they range from "x" to "y" and why they cost what they do (c-sections and high maintenance as young puppies) and then always warn them that if they were to find out outside of that range they should be very weary. I also carry cards from our local rescue and will give them one to ask questions or find out more. Like I said, my response varies depending on how it is asked. Sometimes my response is less that my car but more than a gallon of gas.
I am a master at planking......

There is a part of your heart not alive until a bulldog has entered your life.

Thank you for all the love, fun and teachings
If it's someone I don't know I will tell them they are not full blood and didn't cost that much and leave it at that. @sweetpeasmom2008 I think the next time you see that guy, take a pic of him and go the the police and tell them he tried to steel your bully and he has been hanging around your house and taking pic.

people always ask me..and I usually throw out that we adopted her, she's spayed, and bulldogs are known for health problems, just to keep the risk of someone trying to take her down. I also have people just ask me for puppies all the time. As if my spayed dog will just pop some out.
I should do that creepy to think he took pictures of my Lola but my girls were with Lola so I hope he didnt get pictures of them. We have talked about putting up a higher fench too!
