$600k dog

I like dogs as much as the next person, but spending $600,000 on one just seems a bit excessive.  That dog would have crap pure awesomeness for me, and do it on command! Judging from the picture, I don't think it does that.  However, what it does do is trick stupid people on spending a fortune in buying and delivering it in style.  On second thought, I don't think the dog has anything to do with that, which makes me wonder about the people...

"A woman, identified by only the surname Wang, poses with her $600,000 Tibetan Mastiff dog, Yangtze Number Two, at the airport in Xi'an, in northern China's Shanxi province, Sept. 9, 2009. A caravan of 30 Mercedes Benz limos was seen at the airport to deliver the dog to his new home, Chinese media reported. Wang told reporters she had spent a long time searching for the pure bred Mastiff, who is said to be descended from the most famous line of the ancient breed and are revered in China. Wang said she found the dog while on a visit to Qinghai province."
