    I think it's rude to ask anyone, about how much they paid for anything. But I also think you were stressed cause Remi was stressed. So the a-holes question annoyed you more than it normally would. By the way, I don't remember ever being asked how much Blue cost, but it seems to be very common from everything I've read here.. ...

    I hate hate hate when someone asks me that and I get asked that a lot! Some people just have no manners ... Once someone came up to me and said is it true those dogs are really expensive? how much did you pay for that one?? I was shocked and so peeved off that he treated my dog as if he was just a thing with no other than money value..I just looked at him and told him: expensive? well, if you have to ask you probably can't afford him .... I was feeling brave that day and it felt good, but I usually ignore those people and walk away as if I didn't understand or didn't hear the question, because I am really scared of those who steal them... that's always in my head and I'm very wary.
    When someone "nicer" comes to me and asks I usually start talking about vet bills and this and that and don't really give a number. I always say find a good breeder and ask them..... oh BTW @JAKEISGREAT I also got asked once if Ulysses was a pitbull, I was like what? a pitbull? well, oh yeah of course he is! the noisy couple just walked away as if they had seen a ghost

    I hate it when people ask too. You don't know if they are really interested or wanting to steal your baby. I always tell them that Punk is not a registered bulldog and that she has no papers and fixed to boot.

    I find it quite annoying myself. If you are informed and serious about getting an EB you would have done your homework and figured out the average cost of one.

    @JAKEISGREAT we live in an apartment so one time me and Tubbs are coming in from a walk and the elevator door opens up to a woman and her young daughter. She screamed pitbull and grabbed her daughter so tight. I couldn't help but laugh right in her face. As they fled I made sure to yell out to her that he's super vicious too LOL

    I too get asked that but not too much. I never tell them if I personally don't know them. Period! I'll usually just say, he/she wasn't too much or something like that. More often than not though I get a question like this, "they cost a lot don't they?" I just respond to that, well they can but not all of them do and leave it at that.

    I like to reply -- "For this wonderful dog, not enough!" People ask all of the time...it amazes me. I would never think to ask someone. If you think its bad when they ask about the dog...My best friend has 3 children she adopted...oh yes...people have asked her -- many times -- how much????!!!!

    Why get upset people ask? I mean if you get a new car etc whats the 1st thing people ask? How much did you pay. It's just human nature.
    It does not bother me one bit that people ask me and I have no problem telling them.
    I paid $2,400.00 and she is worth every penny.
