I don't know how many times people have asked can they use Milo as a stud for their female dogs. Usually when I say no they back down but in September I had Milo at a harvest fair with me and this guy would not stop asking so I eventually had to leave!

Just 2 weeks ago this group of women ran over to me to coo over him(they were actually quite scary and really in his face) and one of them just grabbed him out of my arms to cuddle him. Ummm, that is so unacceptable.

Sometimes it's annoying to have such adorable dogs

Whoa! This thread is crazy! I have never had anything like that ever happen to me, thank god! I have my babies microchipped & spayed but I still fear someone stealing my dogs because that's the sad world we live in. But I have never been approached like that. That's crazy! I've only ever had people tell me my dogs are cute & have had people ask if it was ok to pet them. The people y'all are talking about sound like nutters! Eeek!

Michele, I would have freaked too! I cannot imagine the thought of someone even presuming that Bella would be so easily given away. At first I would likely try to laugh them off, but if they continued, I would be quite clear about Bella, breeding and "buying" animals. I have a gift for lecturing someone to the point where they wished they'd never crossed my path lol .

A great fear of mine is that someone will try to take Bella. Seriously, I'd lose it. She's my baby and DH and I are beyond protective.

I'm just so glad I'm not alone on this! I think I'll try to take it as a compliment for now and stay on high alert! I just really hope I'm never approached by anyone this way. My fiancÚ is lucky it was just him, I would have told that woman where she could stick her money and thoroughly embarrassed him, I'm sure. But as a plus, I've discussed with him how imperative it is that we get her fixed THIS WEEK and he agrees so I'm taking her first thing Tomorrow morning! I'm nervous because this is her first surgery of course and we all know the dangers there... But I've found a vet that I trust, and I'm ready to get this done!


Love,
Michele & Khloe

That was my thought, who would just sell off their dog to the highest bidder? I will say I got a very good deal on khloe because the breeders were new to the business and new to texas so they had no idea they were practically GIVING them away... Anyway I didn't want her to make a profit, and the thought of it makes me feel sick!


Love,
Michele & Khloe

He said yes, of course and the woman offered him $1000 for her! ): he said no way this is my fiancÚ's pride and joy, she would never forgive me! (Which of course is the truth) she then upped the bid to $1500... Again, he told the woman she was not for sale. She told him to name a price and he just walked away from her. He told me this story and I felt myself fill with a mixture of sadness and anger! All she wanted was to make money off my Khloe! ): y'all I cried last night thinking about it more and more. Am I ridiculous?? Now that Khloe is older, she goes everywhere with me, and everyone always tells me how beautiful she is... But I hope I am never approached the way my fiancÚ was because I won't be so nice! Aghh sorry I just needed to vent, nobody understands why I'm so POed about it, but I know my SM friends get me!


Love,
Michele & Khloe
Holy cow, I can't believe that lady would think she could offer money and you fiancÚ would just hand over your dog! What nerve!!!!!! And it sounds like she was very persistent too. That's creepy. If she really wants a dog, why doesn't she find a breeder.

Probably because she's so crazy no one will give her a dog
