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). But then I realized that so many people in the neighborhood know him now that I feel much more comfortable - if someone would see him with an unknown they know where he lives.
However, no one has asked me how much I paid for him. I'd probably just say "I adopted him from a nice family who had a number of puppies." But my husband has told people, and I'm not sure why he did that.
My dad asked, and now he's spreading a rumor that I bought Herman for $6400 (he gets confused with details) LOL So family members call and ask and I just say "that's not true" LOL And that's all I say.
