Animal Talk: Two Million Dollar Puppy

Image
Move over six million dollar man! Here's a two million dollar puppy! TV addicts in the 70s probably remember Steve Austin played by Lee Majors in the hit American TV series The Six Million Dollar Man, about a former astronaut with bionic implants. While the Six Million Dollar Man is a mere fictional character based on a novel, Cyborg  by Martin Caidin, the puppy is very much a reality. In Zhejiang, China, a property developer reportedly paid 12 million Yuan ($1.9 million) for a one-year-old golden-haired mastiff. You wouldn't even pay that amount for a cute human baby, would you?
