The 1.5 Million Dollar Dog
"A perfect specimen" of a Tibetan mastiff was purchased in China for 10 Million Yuan ($1.5 Million) to officially become the world's most expensive dog. Affectionately called "Big Splash" or "Hong Dong" in Chinese these mastiffs are an ancient breed long revered as adept guard dogs. Cross currents created by waves of change are reflected in our work, family life, sexual attitudes and personal morality. These are manifested in our lifestyle choices constructing a radically different tomorrow. Inequality, however, remains inevitable.
