    Hi pals,

    This one is hard to believe , but yes, it is true!!

    Doesn't this look like a stuffed TOY DOg on a Toy store display window? No!! Its real and called a Tibetan Mastiff hailing from CHINA.I read the news item in todays paper and ofcourse promptly headed to Google territory to learn more .Here I am sharing what I discovered.What lengths folks go to to spend when they have too much money and don't know how to spend it ??
    Tibetan Mastiffs are known to be the world’s most expensive dogs, and now, a Red Tibetan Mastiff puppy has grabbed the title of the world’s most expensive dog after being sold for about £1 million ($1.6 million). The Tibetan Mastiff, also known as Do-khyi, is an ancient breed and type of domestic dog originating with nomadic cultures of Central Asia. According to the puppy’s breeder Lu Liang, Big Splash (or “Hong Dong” in Chinese) is 11 months old, stands nearly 3 ft. high and weighs over 180lbs. The Mastiff was given a diet of chicken and beef, done with exotic Chinese delicacies like sea cucumber and abalone. Lu runs the Tibetan Mastiff Garden in Laoshan, near the eastern Chinese city of Qingdao. He said…
    He is a perfect specimen. He has excellent genes and will be a good breeding dog. When I started in this business, ten years ago, I never thought we would see such a price.
    Although, the sale details haven’t been revealed, Mr. Lu has said that the buyer, a multi-millionaire coal baron from the north of China, paid 10 million Yuan (£945,000) for the Red Tibetan Mastiff puppy. He further said…
    I could see he loved the puppy, or I would not have sold him. The buyer told me he thought he was a good investment. As a male dog, he can be hired out to other breeders for as much as 100,000 yuan a shot. He could recoup his money in just a couple of years.
    Back in 2009, Chinese millionaire Ms. Wang bought a Tibetan Mastiff named Yangtze River Number Two for $582,000. This lucky dog (world’s second most expensive now) was escorted to his new home by a motorcade of 30 black limousines.
