i was just looking at adds for puppies on the internet (its something i like to do for fun) and i ran across a crazy add. this person was wanting to trade a used tanning bed for a french bulldog, english bulldog, or boston terrier puppy! i thought that was one of the craziest things i have ever heard. just thought i would share that with you guys
A friend and breeder was offered jewlery in exchange for a Pyr pup. She had no pups, but did have a few adult rescues. I had my litter...She felt REALLY sorry for this lady (who must have called her about 25 times at the very least).
The woman had some "health issues" and wanted a pup. Who was going to train the puppy? Keep it clean and healthy?
I told her she'd be nuts to do it (even if she WANTED to give the lady the pup for free) because it was obvious that the woman had no way to pay for vet care andproper nutrition, h/w preventative, flea & tick preventative, etc...
My friend was so stressed out that she was going to have the woman call ME, I told her that I did NOT want the woman calling me because I would probably not be as diplomatic as she had been.
my husband does chainsaw carving and a guy came in with a gorden setter that was preggers and wanted to trade a carving for a puppy, only my husband wanted a lab we would have been getting the better deal on that one i think because i have seen gordons going for as much as $1500
LOL, yeah you definetly can meet some weird people. I remember when I had first gotten Sandy i had her out at the park, and some guy stopped us and was petting her...he said he fell in love, and asked me to trade. He wanted to trade my 10 week old APBT x puppy for his 8 year old Golden Retriever because the retriever could no longer breed. I told that guy where to go!

I know this is off the topic, but I would love to see pictures of some of his carvings. Someone comes to the North GA fair and does that every year and it is just amazing.
You could show us a picture of a dog one if he has one and then it wouldn't be an off topic post...
