The World’s Most Expensive Dog: Puppy Love Equates to $2 Million

 I’m a dog lover.

I love my pug, Molly. But there are limits.

But not for everyone.

I guess if someone is rich enough to pay $2 million for a much-coveted Tibetan mastiff, then it’s not for me to judge. just seems like a lot for a big shaggy dog.

(An unidentified man poses for a photo with two Tibetan mastiffs after they were sold at a "luxury pet" fair in Hangzhou, eastern China. One of the Tibetan mastiff puppies, left, was sold for almost two million U.S. dollars, in what could be the most expensive dog sale ever.)

Did you know that Tibetan mastiffs – an ancient breed of dog, with long coats - have become a status symbol among China's growing wealthy classes? You don’t hear that much about rich Chinese, unless it’s about how much one paid for some rare animal/object. Not sure why that is.

Can you imagine feeding one of these 200 pound puppies? The pricey things pet owners do worldwide, eh? In America, the Pet Industry profits run in the billions annually. Just saying.

Time for me to walk on down the road…
