Some lucky dog. Because his master is ultra-rich, he gets to experience benefits and luxuries that are way over the clouds one would think he actually asked for them. But this Siberian husky didn’t. Just that his master has a different thinking.


The Internet went agog on Tuesday when photos of a dog wearing not just one but two gold Apple Watches went around. The dog is the pet of Wang Sicong, son of property titan and China’s richest man Wang Jianlin.

First reported by Shanghaiist, Wang Sicong posted on the dog’s personal Weibo account (yes the dog has a Weibo account! Even crazier is that it has 700,000 followers!) four photos of his dog wearing a gold Apple Watch on each of his two front paws. The watches had white bands.

The photos’ captions read: “Haha, I have new watches! I’m supposed to have four watches since I have four long legs. But that seems too tuhao so I kept it down to two, which totally fits my status. Do you have one?”

Tuhao, according to Bloomberg’s translation, was “uncouth” in the American language. CNBC, meantime, said it was actually a derogatory term meaning vulgar wealth or nouveaux riche.

Wang Sicong, according to HuffPost, owns a $25 billion fortune. The $30,000 he splurged for the front paws of his Siberian pet, named Wang Keke, surely was just cheap pennies for him.

According to Apple Insider, the 42-millimeter Apple Watch Edition with white sport band on the pooch’s paws sells for $14,318 in mainland China. All together, the two blings cost over $28,000.
