    Is it rude to ask how much you paid for your pup vs how much are you charging?
    When we bought Vegas, we had no idea how much the breeder wanted. She wouldn't say over the phone. We literally drove 5 hours to meet him...fell in love.....then she told us. Luckily we had the money saved up. I actually thought that was rude. What if we were expecting something less? which we were............But, we are glad we have him. We are glad we found him. He is our !!

    well, if you ask while shopping around, that is different. I think she should have given you an idea, like a range between x and y based on the pup you want. Some will only give you an answer if you are a "serious" prospect. I guess she knew you were serious since you drove so far for him.

    I just find it interesting that those questions are asked about a puppy, but I don't see people walking around the pet store parking lot asking how much you paid for your car! Next time I may just say "I am not sure, My accountant pays all my bills" lol, that will get them thinking.

    Always with me

    This is another thing I got a lot - with two white bulldogs, one significantly larger than the other - "are they mother and baby?" Um, they both have penises. And weird they always thought Linus was Bentley's mom.

    I think its very rude... We were in home depot waiting to check out and this lady behind us asked how much we paid for him, i told her we "got a good deal" she then kept askin well how much like 3 or 4 more times. I just ignored her and she was being very pressistant w it i said again we got a good deal and turned around. I asked jeff for the keys and just walked out, when jeff got in the car he told me she had asked again!!! Now if people are intrested i'll tell them who i got him from and give them a price range.
    You dont see me goin up to people askin so how much was your boob job lol

    @Libra926, I have told some that we sold a car to get him. In reality my husband sold his "play" car to get the newer model and we did use a portion for Bear, lol.

    I usually say... cheaper if you rescue one... that's how I got him (pointing to Norm). Then I add... no matter how you get one they cost alot of money and they take alot of time!

    I do think it's rude, it's not anyone's business, especially a stranger's. I usaully just say something like... "oh it wasn't too bad". This question makes me nervous, I'm always thinking someone will try to kidnap them if they think they're worth a lot of $$.

    I completely agree about being kidnapped, I told my husband if we ever got broke into they would most certainly steal Vegas IF they knew what he was worth, then I said, but the good thing is they would bring him back and leave him at the door with a " NO THANK YOU" note attached after they figured out how much care is involved in keeping him, LMAO!!!
