Angry Got an U$10,000 offer for my boy?!

While waiting for my husband on a very upscale store I got offered 10,000 for my baby boy Dominic.
I could tell the whole story which start over kind cute and funny but I'm still outraged. I had to let it our of my chest.

Handsome Dominic is priceless! . I too once had a similar experience while shopping in a department store. Its amazing what some people think they can do with their money. It is frustrating.

Wow, that is an insult. If somebody offered me a million dollars for MiMi I would give it a few minutes consideration...but ten thousand dollars? That is insulting. I do so hope you set that moron straight.

I felt so insulted I couldn't say much but "Sir, this is my son!!". I had a friend with me that said very loud "What??? Keep walking!!". They even asked to take a picture with Dom before insulting me and dumb me I let them do it as they start off so kind. Oh well...

It truly amazes me that some people think that you can put a price on your furkid. My mom used to show cats years ago and you can show cats that have been spayed or neutered. I was at a show with her when a woman approached my mom about buying her male "Shaded Silver Persian" Eddie that she was showing. The lady offered my mom $10,000 for Eddie and said everyone has a price, the breeder also happened to be there too showing her cats and the breeder and i both looked at the woman and told her that there is no amount of money that would make my mom sell Eddie. The woman just wanted to say that she had a Champion show cat! He was a gorgeous boy and was so beautiful that he looked like a girl, oh how i miss Eddie.

As Barbara said be proud that he got his photo taken as for the money it is an insult you cannot out A price on love. Try to ignore these people they obviously love looking at the dog but would make terrible parents because they couldn't be bothered raising them by themselves!!! Don't worry Dominic the handsome boy wouldn't go to far without you!!

Some people will never understand the bonds we have with our pups. Someone thinking you'd sell your dog on the spot is absolutely ridiculous..

But your Dominic is handsome!

Thank you all for the support. Everything is new for us with our baby and I wasn't expecting anything close to this to happen. Reading your stories and your words of advice is very helpful.
