Yes, that's me in the photo above and this may actually be early evidence of the start of my fear of large dogs. This may also be why I find this story incredibly well, ridiculous...

According to the New York Daily News, some dude in China just paid nearly $2 MILLION DOLLARS for a rare Tibetan mastiff puppy. The furry, bear-like dogs are mythologized as having 'lion's blood.' Let me repeat that...they said 'lion's blood.' I am going on record on this date, March 20th, 2014 to let everyone know that there is NO way that I will EVER be the owner of a Tibetan mastiff. For those that aren't familiar with this LARGE dog with LION'S BLOOD...here's a photo for you:
