Since it’s finally nice out in Montana, people have been spending a lot of time outside. That means there are more people to stop and meet Mauja and Atka. The extra interaction leads to a lot of interesting questions/comments.
There’s one that gets me every time.
“How much does a dog like that cost?”
This has been asked more times than I can count. I really don’t think it’s anyone’s business and I get really flustered every time someone asks. I typically reply with, “Oh, it’s been so long I can’t remember”.
And really, what does it matter?
Do people ever ask you uncomfortable questions about your dogs? Do you think there is a better way for me to respond to this question?
