HIGH FALUTIN SHIZ TZU?

DH took me car shopping today and I wore my Havanese Pin that I got from a forum member. The car salesman anxious to please no doubt noticed the pin and asked if that was like my little dog. Of course I said yes. He said, "Oh you have a ****shu". Being the person I am, I corrected his pronounciation and politely explained that Rosie was a Havanese and countered the price on the car by $5000 at the same time. Well, the salesman not to be outdone turned to me and said, "then she is a HIGH FALUTIN ****STU AND THE PRICE IS FIRM." I swear this is a true story. I got tickled and started laughing and told him that if I decided to buy the car I would bring her by. He then proceeded to tell me about his bulldogs and how they were trying to find a female to breed and raise puppies. I stumbled a little, grabbed my DH's arm and said I have to leave Now. Scared DH to death. As I got in the car, I turned to the salesman and raised my offer by $2000. When DH put me in the car, he wanted to go straight to the hospital. I told him that I had just stood to long. When I got home me and my High Falutin ShizTZu took a long nap. Most fun I have had in a long time. Can't decide about the car though. A new one costs $50,000 (we are talking Ford here). I remember when you could get a really good ford for $2000. Course my first house only cost $10,000. A used one with 20,000 miles on it cost about half that; but then you wonder why someone traded in a perfectly good car so soon. Guess we will wait for a while.

I would say--I have a high falutin havanese!

I'm not sure why and I hope no one takes this personal--but I am always a bit insulted when someone calls Quincy a shih tzu. He has a muzzle and is much cuter then a shih tzu in my opinion. Of course--shih tzu's are okay,but I take care of allot of them (they are really popular here and over bred) and I don't see how a person can NOT see a muzzle! It is only jetting out into your face,right?

Oh I feel real insulted. There is not one here in my town that cost over $100 and they are a dime a dozen. I take that back, I did see one a couple of years back in full coat walking downtown. But I couldn't get over to the owner before she left. I wanted more info. Oh, the Ford was a Lincoln Sorry about that. I actually don't know wat the price of a brand new ford was because, the salesman said that the ford was the exact same as the Lincoln and I saw the used one and started looking at it before the conversation got into dogs.

Glad to hear you got a laugh. People always think Misty is a Maltese and Yogi more then one person has ask me where I got the miniature Old English Sheepdog!!!! Yogi has a tail. I think the salesman was trying to establish common ground...seems it did not work. A really good salesperson would have ask, not only if the dogs was yours but "what kind" and then listened until they had all your secrets...maybe its better he didn't.

Robbie, Boo Boo, Yogi, and Misty's human.
Poohkey miss you, monkey.
