    This thread is very timely! All of my questions/comments have been positive, except for just an hour ago: Someone outside asked me how much she costs... I hate that!!! I am never prepared for busy-body questions like that. I need to be better prepared. @Cali Doll Either tell them "Nunya'" or she costs "my love for her lifetime". @CrazyDogMomThe paparazzi follow us everywhere we go, too! Lol! We take our babies with us on at least 2 trips a week to Lowe's, Home Depot, Petsmart, too see "dad" at work, and my husband usually takes one with him everyday to work-he's a Diesel Performance mechanic-So the whole Bully Dog thing really fits the shop. We're trying to socialize or babies as much now while they're babies as possible, and they love the attention! Yeah, show off my "relatives!"

    “It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough,all the components of my heart will be dog,and I will become as generous and loving as they are"

    "He's fat!" i get that often enough but that just goes to show that those people don't really know much of the breed. So i would then try to explain that no he isn't fat. As a matter of fact if you look...--then the person will turn around and walk away lol. That happens pretty often. Another thing i hate is when they pull their dog away and say "my dog doesn't know if your dog is growling or breathing" Oh When he growls you'll know! And the most thing i hate people who thinks they know better say: "the breed is so unhealthy people shouldn't have them!" "They're breathing is so bad owning one is animal cruelty!" "They should stop breeding them because of the many health issues". I get those frequently than "he's fat" comments. When we ride the train, go to the park, there would always be a comment like that. English Bulldog is really not popular here. there was once a woman who shielded her son against the bushes and walked sideways, arms spread while my boy and i were walking by. Told her not to worry he already had his breakfast lol.

    Being asked how much we paid for him is not something i mind. I rarely get that question and depends who asks, i sometimes tell them the truth.

    Oh my favorite is "only a face a mother could love"...WTF does that mean?!?!? Or "They are eating good" and mine aren't even chunky. drives me nuts.
    I have had very negative encounters with mine. Lots of people think they are mean because their teeth show. Too bad those people will never know the love of a bulldog! I'm very lucky

    oooh.. i forgot about the "fat" comment Blue once got.

    Some woman in the elevator looked at Blue, and said in a baby voice "You don't look like you've missed many meals" then laughed. He was 58lbs of amuscle. So I said, "neither do you" then of course "kidding kidding". She barely smiled..lol..

    Ruthie gets that line constantly. She's only 30 lbs and pure muscle, she's like a little bowling ball.

    Thanks for telling that line. I'm putting that in the comeback arsenal.

    LOL! Good replies. I might go with that or "I'd rather not say." The thing is, I don't lie very well and, when I'm caught off guard, I fall back on the truth. I told the truth today and I immediately regretted it. I will keep a proper response in my back pocket always.

    I will add that I don't think the question ("How much did you pay?") is necessarily bad, but it is nosey. It could actually be a really harmless question, though. Like, "Wow, I'd love one of those dogs. How much do they cost?"

    I think because many of us pay a lot for our dogs, we take that as a really personal question. At least, I do! I don't want people to know how much I paid for Bella--yet, I blab it outside this morning. I'm so mad at myself.

    Well forget about come back lines and panicking about telling the truth. next time someone asks you something that makes you uncomfortable just fall back on the ole reliable "It's none of your effing business a$&hole" and walk away. I'm mean it really isn't anyone's business what you pay for your dog or anything else for that matter.
