One of the largest breeds in dogdom, these giants average 180 [see Jim Butler’s comment below] pounds.

Over 2700 dogs entered the 2013 show – a record-breaker.

Fluffy tails are more than just for show – they can curl over the nose and allow for warmer air to breathe while sleeping in cold climes. Sturdy legs and big foot pads help maneuver over snowy landscapes.

Big Splash

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?
