My Heart Is Breaking....

I went to meet with a breeder yesterday who breeds quality bullmastiff. I fell inlove with the whole litter and most especially the sire. They are gentle and loving and very obedient. My heart breaks because I cannot have one right now. The breeder has given me a discount but still I cannot afford to pay the price at the spot. I was tossing and turning in bed last night I just know that one pup I chose really belonged to me. I was so at home with her and she with me. There is a big difference in the temperament with this dog and my dog. How can I raise $300 at the end of the month? The breeder gave me a discount and is willing to give me until the end of the month to pay for the pup. Could you please give me any more idea on how to?

HELLO;before I go looking for a dog/ pet, I usually try to find out the price before I do anything. When I go I usually have the intension of bringing the pet home with me, no excuses. Now if you r like my wife, most women usuAlly r this way. She starts crying puts her arms around me saying she will do anything to get what she wants, but, usually never does, however gets her way anyways. ABOVE ALL ELSE, REMEMBER ALWAYS LUV/ CARE/ TRAIN YOUR DOG/PET, THEY WILL ALWAYS LUV U..

I have to agree with Bad Daddy on this one . Whenever you see puppies you fall in love with them no matter what breed they are . Why not go for one of a different breed that you can afford ? Better yet try checking out some shelters, or petfinder on the internet . Rescue dogs make such loving, and loyal pets.

@ bigdaddy: I was just checking the price and checking out the dogs in her kennel but I fell inlove with well all of them when I came for a visit. Lolz but I am not like your wife I do not manipulate my way around my parents I mean not that I can't but I just do not see the point. Guess I have more pride lol. I work hard to buy the things I want and not so used to asking. Lol I know someone women are like that and they usually end of getting what they want. But I was raised differently, my parents never gave me anything for free. I mean except the basic necessities. But those that I want or desire I have to work hard for it if I wanna have it. Beachstarz: All breeds here are very expensive. There are but a few breeders here in my area that are reputable and this one is one of them. My handler cautions me on bying from the internet as I cannot see the temperament of the dog. Like this Jack Spitz mix we have, which we bought off from the net. She is quite temperamental and stubborn and she is not good with visitors. She is becoming a liability now than a good pet. Most breeds here are german shepherd, rottweiller, and pitbulls. And I do not like any of the breeds I mentioned. She is the only bullmastiff breeder in my city. Plus there ain't no rescue shelters around here.

I know what you mean about falling in love with a puppy. But I can´t understand why you went to have your heart broken if you didn´t have the money to buy it. I avoid having those heartbreaks, even for smaller things (like going windowshopping without a penny). I´m so sorry I can´t tell you of a way to earn money. I earn about $100 online but it took me time to get there. Besides that amount would not be enough. Isn´t there something you have that tou´d be willing to sell? We have always junk around and we don´t realise that it could be interesting for someone else. I hope you discover a way to earn that money. Any kind of work you might do? Luck!!!

I could actually afford to buy 2 at the same time if only our business contacts would be paying us what they owe and with that elections going on in my country money is kind of tight for everyone. My heartbreaks because I know the moment I saw that pup that she is the one I have always wanted. Her temperament reminds me of the dog I grew up with. The one I have no is far different from this one pup in temperament. Not that I do not love this one but this one isn't as obedient infact she is stubborn. My first dog was the best one I ever had and that pup I saw is so much like her not physically but as I've said in temperament and she is also affectionate. I could also train her to be a protection dog.

Oh I wish that I could think of a way to help you out in this situation. However, there is really nothing that I can think of where you would be able to earn an extra 300 dollars by the end of the month. However, for future reference, I wouldn't go to look at the puppies until I had the money to actually buy one of them. Falling in love with pets that I knew I couldn't get is something that has happened to me several times throughout my life.

Come up with a fun and creative idea to make the money you need. Do you have some items lying around the house that you don't really need or want any more? Have a yard sale. Got some friends that would be willing to help you out for an afternoon? Do a carwash. And of course get busy online and make as much as you can there. If you put your mind to it, I am sure that you can come up with a way to raise the extra money.
