Chinese Dude Pays $2 Million for a Dog
 
Quote:

For $2 million, hopefully this dog comes with a complimentary mansion. A Chinese property developer reportedly paid that hefty sum to get his hands on a one-year-old golden haired Tibetan mastiff in what could be the most expensive dog sale ever. The breed, which can look like a baby lion if you squint really hard, has become a status symbol among China's ritzy upper class.

Weighing in at 200 pounds and nearly three feet tall, Tibetan mastiffs are just as nationally treasured as pandas. The puppy purchased was one of a pair who "have lion's blood and are top-of-the-range mastiff studs," said the dog's breeder. Both pups, whose names weren't released, are said to be loyal and protective of their owners. The record-breaking pup is on the left below.

How does a dog share a bloodline with a cat?

I wish I had 2 million dollars to throw it at whatever I wanted.

I thought he was just very hungry. Did not realize he wanted a pet.

Haha yeah, judging by the look on his face.

Well look at it this way. He can enter those things in the Kentucky derby and he saves money on buying a horse. He got a 2 for 1 in the pet department. I guess if it has "lion's blood" then it's a 3 for 1.

At some point you have so much money, that price doesn't matter. Your time is worth not haggling or waiting at all. With the time he saved throwing money at these things, he probably made 3 million dealing property.

I also found this very comedic:

Has lion's blood and is a top-of-the-range stud? Sounds like the perfect pet for Charlie Sheen.

Damn wish he had checked with me first. I've got a pitbull that looks like a tiger I would have sold for 500K :mrgreen:
