Big Bucks

At Least He's Got A Woof Over His Head

A Tibetan mastiff with the catchy name of Yangtze River Number Two has reportedly been sold in Shaanxi, China, for around £350,000, making it the most expensive dog ever. The previous record of £90,000 was paid in Florida for - a cloned version of a much-loved but deceased labrador.

Ridiculous to spend all that on a dog! It will die!

That is quite the expensive pooch - then you have to feed the mastiff!

Seems a bit much. Even for a Mastiff. But what do I know.

I just have one I want to adopt! I am fostering for a local shelter and want to find a good home for Gypsy. You can find her on my site.

There is something money can't buy - love and affection. We've got our dog from a rescue centre, and never regretted it.
