My dog would sell me for a cheeseburger and a ride to the beach
It depends on the dog - the dog I have right now, no. But I gave another dog away for free, and also a cat. They were both problematic animals. If I could have sold them both for $100K each I would have been very happy. I don't put animals on the same level as human children; I know people who do this, and they're a mess in others areas of life also.
Irish Wolfhound? I've had one of those in my life. Wonderful dogs!
More recently I've had English Bulldogs. I used to joke that if I ever had a medical emergency while taking our daily walk in the woods, Stewart would be faithfully sitting beside my body, all my pockets turned out, and not a biscuit on me. ☺️
I got 4 ankle biters, 3 cats and a fish. I will name all my new guitars in their honor.
Yes, she's a Standard, don't see too many around these parts, mostly minis.
Dogs In Heaven?
An old man and his dog were walking down this dirt road with fences on both sides, they came to a gate in the fence and looked in, it was nice grassy, woody areas, just what a 'huntin' dog and man would like, but, it had a sign saying 'no trespassing' so they walked on. They came to a beautiful gate with a person in white robes standing there. "Welcome to Heaven" he said. The old man was happy and started in with his dog following him. The gatekeeper stopped him. "Dogs aren't allowed, I'm sorry but he can't come with you."
"What kind of Heaven won't allow dogs? If he can't come in, then I will stay out with him. He's been my faithful companion all his life, I can't desert him now."
"Suit yourself, but I have to warn you, the Devil's on this road and he'll try to sweet talk you into his area, he'll promise you anything, but the dog can't go there either. If you won't leave the dog, you'll spend Eternity on this road."
So the old man and dog went on. They came to a rundown fence with a gap in it, no gate, just a hole. Another old man was inside. "S'cuse me Sir, my dog and I are getting mighty tired, mind if we come in and sit in the shade for awhile?"
"Of course, there's some cold water under that tree over there. Make yourselves comfortable"
"You're sure my dog can come in? The man down the road said dogs weren't allowed anywhere."
"Would you come in if you had to leave the dog?"
"No sir, that's why I didn't go to Heaven, he said the dog couldn't come in.
We'll be spending Eternity on this road, and a glass of cold water and some shade would be mighty fine right about now. But, I won't come in if my buddy here can't come too, and that's final."
The man smiled a big smile and said "Welcome to Heaven."
"You mean this is Heaven? Dogs ARE allowed? How come that fellow down the road said they weren't?"
"That was the Devil and he gets all the people who are willing to give up a life long companion for a comfortable place to stay. They soon find out their mistake, but then it's too late. The dogs come here, the fickle people stay there. GOD wouldn't allow dogs to be banned from Heaven. After all, HE created them to be man's companions in life, why would he separate them in death?"

Yes, Irish Wolfhound, Finnegan, 3.5 years old, he's a big marshmallow...
Ours, named "Shanti", was my GF's dog. This was 35 years ago now. The three of us were inseparable, and used to drive around everywhere in my VW Bug.
That had to be a sight to see!!!
Yeah, she'd lean over every once in a while, and give me a big wet LICK. Her head was actually forward of ours - she'd get nose marks on the windshield.
She was a very cool dog.
No. They're not commodities.
No, the quality of loyalty should not be undermined.
dogs are just dogs, and while dogs are super cool, I'd sell any one of your dogs for that kind of money
I don't have dogs of my own, but there are other people's dogs I'd sell for a lot less.
For the record, I am currently living in a house with two dogs and seven cats. I've grown quite fond of the dogs and most of the cats most of the time. I'd never sell a pet unless I was totally unable to take care of it and I knew it would be well treated and loved. And in that case, I'd give it away. So I guess the long answer is "no."
Not for 1000K
Hell- I’d pay someone $100 to take him...
Don't have a dog at the moment and would possibly not outlive the next one anyway so probably won't get another.
I've had a few and they have been among the best people I have ever known so no not for sale at any price.
