Big Splash

Posted in blogosphere, puppies, reality check with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 11, 2011 by Qritiq

smartcompany reports:

In March, an 11-month old red Tibetan mastiff pup named Big Splash was sold in the Chinese city of Qingdao for a staggering $US 1.5 million to an unnamed buyer, described as a wealthy coal baron. The dogs are renowned as one of China’s most prized breeds – legend says Genghis Khan and Buddha each had one.

I’m curious: If you spend 1.5 mil on a dog and the dog won’t bring you your paper in the morning, can you get a refund? Can you get a discount if it refuses to fetch slippers –  sayyy… a couple hundred grand? Logo Animated

15.    A sign on the lawn at the drug rehab center said:  ‘Keep off the Grass.’

17.    A chicken crossing the road is poultry in motion.

18.    It’s not that the man did not know how to juggle, he just didn’t have the balls to do it.

19.    The midget fortune-teller who escaped from prison was a small medium at large.

20.    The man who survived mustard gas and pepper spray is now a seasoned veteran.

21.    A backward poet writes inverse.

22.    In democracy it’s your vote that counts. In feudalism it’s your count that votes.

sweetActually they’re a really old breed, but this is the first year that the Tibetan Mastiff will compete at the Westminster Dog Show at Madison Square Garden (Monday and Tuesday).  On show days, if you walk through the lobby of the hotel across the street from Penn Station on 7th Ave, you will see all manner of dogs.  Competitors


Seems that these (born in 2007) are the K-9’s to be of Annhui.
