There is one thing about the dog world; people love gossip! Recently I heard a silly rumour about me and my pups and thought I would clear it up. I figure if I put in on the blog, people will then talk about it! haha.
For some reason, a few years ago when I first started breeding in the UK, the rumour went around that I charged 1000 pounds for my puppies. (that would be nearly $2000 US dollars!). Who knows where that idea came from but I actually had someone come up to quite aggressively at a show asking me about it; I think they were ready to have a go at me but then calmed down when I looked blankly at them and told them how much my pups were. I heard nothing else about it until this week.
I thought that was it; but this week someone (who is wanting a pup next year) asked me if it was true that my pups were 1000 pounds because she couldn't afford that. She was relieved when I told her that it was a rumour but she said she heard it from a few people.
SO.....to clear up the rumour: My pups do NOT sell for that amount or anything NEAR that amount. I personally think they are priceless but, for me, the right home is more important than any amount of money. So I just hope that some really good homes were not put off contacting me just because of that rumour. That would be sad.
The pups are growing up; they make me laugh. I am no closer to picking a puppy but think I have narrowed it down to two and it wasn't the same two I had picked last week! They change so often; I wish I could keep two of them but I know that I would not get the best out of both if I did that.
Dennis comes home on Thursday which is not soon enough! I miss him and the puppies miss him. He is such a big help with the pups and it has been exhausting this week without him.
Itsy looking adorable.
That's big drop for a little girl.
