:goodpost: you know how much of Idaho I would own? LOLI think I could find better things to investment 1.5 mill in and turn a profit. But to some price has no bearing if they want something bad enough and have the money to pay for it well who am I to tell them no knock yourself out.
:goodpost: That's exactly right. Just because someone paid 1.5mil for a dog doesn't make it a better dog. It just means that they can afford it and are willing to pay for it.something is only worth as much as someone is willing to pay lol, N if someone is willing to pay that good for the person selling lmao .. .. A lil outta my price range I dont think I can justify spending $5000 on a dog let alone millions :S
I have a high respect for the Asian culture & medicinal practices. More so than most other cultures, including my own.Back in the late 90s people used to come from all over SE Asia to pick mushrooms from one small area of national forest in Oregon because of their supposed medicinal properties. A pound could run well over $100.00 (I heard people say they were being sold for as much as $500 a pound but never personally saw it).
To this day you can walk through the woods and collect antler sheds from deer and elk that you can sell to certain Chinese vendors and/or wholesalers for $15-20 per pound.
Point being that in Asian culture's status symbols like the dog are often more important than life itself. How others perceive you is extremely important.
Having said that I can't imagine paying that kind of price for a dog. But then I've never had that much money just lying around so who knows...
