$1.5 million paid by a Chinese "coal baron" for a red Tibetan Mastiff.

If we think the gap between the upper & lower classes is wide here in the U.S., it seems that said gap is even larger in less developed countries, i.e. Saudi Arabia, China & others.

In any case, the 180-pound 11-month-old red Tibetan Mastiff (http://www.pawnation.com/2010/07/12/vienna-is-the-latest-city-to-crack-down-on-dangerous-dog-breed/) known as Big Splash, or "Hong Dong" in Mandarin, just earned the title of the world's priciest pooch

Honk Dong? I think I saw him in a movie with Jenna Jameson.
