    To ask anyone how much they pay for anything is just plain rude..... none of your business is what I would love to say, but I normally ignore the question

    I get that question all the time (because Matilda is just so pretty!) and my answer is always "A lot." I usually follow it up with, but these dogs, you either pay a lot up front or a lot in medical bills later on... and sometimes both!

    Asking straight up how much things cost is really an "American" thing. Most cultures feel that talking about money in that way is boastful and tasteless.

    There's a bully owner in my neighbourhood with an 8 month old pup. He was telling me how he might get a male since he can make at least $1,000 off of each pup. I never bit my tongue as hard as I did that day.

    I had Amber with me one day at Petsmart and a guy kept following me around and asking me how much I paid for her; I tried to change the subject, walk away and avoid the question but he just kept following me from location to location no matter where I went in the store. I get to the register and he says, "Seriously, how much did you pay for that dog?" My reply, "She isn't a dog, she is an English Bulldog and I paid more for her than anyone paid for you." The girl at the register couldn't continue ringing anyone up because she was laughing so hard and the people around me almost fell on the floor. The rude individual couldn't get out of the store fast enough.

    It depends who asks me, family and friends know how each one of our bullies came into our lives and pretty much know the prices. If it's a stranger I just tell them pretty much the truth. Since I adopted both of the girls I just say I had to pay for the shelter fee. Gio I re-homed and had to pay a for, so I just tell people I adopted him from a shelter as well. You just never know the intentions of strangers. Are they asking because they want to buy a puppy? Are they going to follow me home and try to steal one of them to sell? Who knows! Even if I bought one of my guys as a puppy, I think I would still say I adopted them. And I ALWAYS make sure to tell EVERYONE that they are fixed and I also tell people they each need medications everyday, my biggest fear is someone stealing one of them!!!
