concaveness to each dome.These features create an asymmetric shape that
peaks the curiosity not only of the fish, as they offer varying
degrees of magnification that humans are intrigued by.

for the shy fish. Since each porthole is unique, they offer a varying

Woman in China Buys the Most Expensive Dog in The World

Tibetan Mastiff becomes world’s priciest dog: Chinese woman pays $600,000

Mastiff

A woman from Northern China has just taken delivery of what has reportedly become the most expensive dog in the world for which she paid 4 million yuan, or about $600,000. …

The millionairess has reportedly been searching for the perfect dog for years. This dog, which she spotted in Yushu made the grade. “Gold has a price,” she said, “But this Tibetan mastiff doesn’t.”

Upon its arrival in Xi’an airport, the 18-month-old Tibetan mastiff,Yangtze River Number Two was greeted by dog lovers waving welcome banners. According to reports, the dog’s owner, identified only as Mrs. Wang, arranged for a motorcade of 30 black Mercedes-Benz cars led by two sports utility vehicles to transport the canine to its new home in style. The dog’s welcome crowd was so large and lavish, that passersby gathered round thinking a human celebrity was in their midst.

In China, this ancient breed goes by nicknames such as “Miraculous Beast”, “Number One Dog” and “Antique Dog.” Buddha and Genghis Khan kept them as companions. Marco Polo wrote of seeing them in the Orient. They are fabled to play a huge part in maintaining ecological balance (both spiritually and physically) in their native habitat, the Tibetan Plateau, where sadly, they are now quite rare. They are reputed to be one of the oldest breeds still in existence and archaeological evidence suggests they served as guard dogs in China as early as 1000 B.C..

With fewer than 160 pure bred descendants of the original Tibetan mastiffs currently in existence, these dogs are certainly rare. …

Chinese dog-watchers are certainly a new phenomenon in a land where keeping dogs as pets was banned under the reign of Mao Zedong who described dog owners as time-wasters. Large dogs are still outlawed in Beijing where it is illegal to register a dog larger than 35 cms (13 inches). Dog ownership in general is reserved for the wealthier population in cities like Beijing, where the annual license fee can run as high as 1,000 yuan or ($150) – an astronomical sum for the city’s blue collar workers (textile workers’ salaries averaged averaged less than 20,000 yuan or $5,689 in 2008).

Paris Hilton’s USD325,000 Doghouse

By ASHOK SOMAN

In the midst of a continuing global economic downturn and an across-board housing slump, one woman is not giving up the ghost of excess: Paris Hilton. And neither are her dogs.

According to gossip maven Perez Hilton, the six pampered pooches are living it up in a USD325,000 mini-mansion featuring interiors by Faye Resnick and miniature Philippe Starck furniture.

It even comes with a black crystal chandelier. Of course, the 300sqf house comes with climate control and is located in Paris’ own backyard in Beverly Hills. Our investment experts have yet to get back to us on the soundness of Hilton’s real estate venture.

Image credits: Paris Hilton via Twitter

Paris’s pinkified pet playhouse has two floors. Downstairs there is a living room and upstairs there is a bedroom and a closet to stash the many outfits she has purchased for her small pets. Hilton’s dogs, which bear names like Tinkerbell, Marilyn Monroe, Prince Baby Bear, Harajuku, Dolce and Prada, will feel right at home because the mini-mansion, outfitted by interior decorator Faye Resnick was designed to resemble Hilton’s own home in all its pink majesty and includes miniature Philippe Starck furniture, heat, air conditioning and even a black crystal chandelier and black ceiling moldings. At a price of $325,000, as Perez Hilton points out, such extavagance might not sit well with the many people in the U.S. struggling to hold on to their homes. But then again, would we expect anything less of Paris Hilton?
