The Million Dollar Dog

Hong Dong or Big Splash

This is not about Slumdog Millionaire - but about the Million Dollar Dog. Actually, Hong Dong - or Big Splash as it traslates to English - a Tibetan mastiff dog, was bought by a multi-millionaire Chinese coal baron for 1.5 million dollars. I guess he doesn't know, but he is the most expensive dog in the world.

Some people might scoff at the super rich for spending such money on a dog. However, I think if I were a multi-millionaire and were going to burn off a million and a half dollars - I would rather do it on this dog than on a new house or yet another car. I think the coal baron invested with his heart. By spending time with Hong Dong his heart might grow bigger and softer and gain more perspective. Perhaps, after some Hong Dong Therapy, the coal baron will be transformed to the point where he thinks: I must do something better than this! Life is more than earning money! Come on, Hong Dong - let's go make this world a good place to be!

Or something like that.
