If you are a crafter, sewer, knitter you have heard of Columbia Minerva as you roam through the yarn and thread isles at a craft store. They were early PupStylers and didn’t even know it!
Minerva understood the value of incorporating dogs in advertising and marketing to sell fashion. If a pretty model is holding a cute Maltese near here face, the dog just makes the model even more beautiful and harder to forget the brand. Right on Minerva!

Tibetan Mastiff puppy ‘Hong Dong’ (no relation to Long Duck) was recently purchased by a Chinese coal magnate for a whopping 10 million yuan (about $1.5 million USD). We got word of this prodigious puppy purchase from our new buddies down-under at Poochmag.
This mega-gigantic fluff-ball is only 11 months old and already 3 feet tall at the shoulder and over 180 pounds. Wowzers! The Tibetan Mastiff is one of the world’s oldest and rarest breeds – said to have been kept by Genghis Khan and Lord Budhha.
China’s “new rich” have fallen in love with these living, breathing & slobbering status symbols and helped push the prices for purebred puppies into the millions. The previous “most expensive dog” title holder was another Tibetan Mastiff named Yangtze River Number Two purchased for a paltry $500,000 USD in 2009. To make up for the embarrassingly low price tag the owner picked up Yangtze River Number Two in a 30 car motorcade when he was driven home (sigh – 50 cars would have been nicer but 30 will do….)
Hong Dong will have a busy schedule ahead of him with breeders paying upwards of $16,000 USD for a “date with the Donger”.
