Coco the Alaskan Malamute might be
the most pampered pooch in the
world.
The pet dog has apparently been
given eight iPhone 7 handsets by his
doted owner, the only son of China’s
richest man Wang Jianlin, worth £23
billion, according to Chinese media.
Pictures have emerged on China’s
social media showing the lucky
canine posing next to a stack of eight
boxes believed to contain a £800
phone in each.
Coco’s eccentric owner Wang Sicong,
28, was educated at Winchester
College and is already worth £430
million.
These pictures were believed to be
uploaded by Wang Sicong to the
dog’s very own social media account
on Weibo, which has nearly 1.9
million followers and is ironically
named ‘Wang Keke is a Dam’.
The images were posted in the
afternoon of September 16, the first
day the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 went
on sale.
Along with the pictures, a post read:
‘Not sure what people are showing
off on Moments (a Chinese social
media platform)! There is nothing to
show off. I was forced to take
action.’
The pictures have been widely
shared by Chinese media, including
news sites cnbeta.com and on.cc.
The post has also gathered
thousands of shares and comments.
Some people said the dog was cute
while others hoped Wang Sicong
could give them a free iPhone 7 too.
One Weibo user named ‘M mi jia’
said: ‘[The dog] is so cute.’
While another user called ‘wo shi lao
duan zi’ said: ‘Does the dog plan to
host a lucky draw?’
Some people were envious of the
dog’s fortune, such as ‘Free liu te’
who said: ‘Coco is richer than me!’
‘Zha lao ban’ wasn’t impressed as
the user commented: ‘I can’t even
live as well as a dog.’
In China, an iPhone 7 costs 6,988
yuan (£803) while an iPhone 7 Plus
costs 7,988 yuan (£918).
Sicong is a successful businessman
and one of the richest entrepreneurs
under the age 30 in China.
As the pet of Wang Sicong, Coco has
some how become a celebrity in her
own right in China as her owner calls
her: ‘The dog princess of the
people.’
Through her Weibo account, Sicong
shows off the ostentatious lifestyle
he has created for his dog with
luxury products most animals can
only dream of.
This is not the first time Coco has
impressed the public with her
cutting-edge gadgets.
In May 2015, the pooch was pictured
wearing not one, but two £800
Apple Watches given to her by her
generous owner.
The pet was also given a pink Fendi
handbag by his owner in the same
month.
Earlier this year, Sicong posted
pictures of Coco posing with a wads
of cash, which he claimed is her
present on Valentine’s Day,
In April, the pampered pooch
celebrated her second birthday with
an extravagant birthday party and
two cakes.
Her multi-millionaire owner spelt her
name in balloons and tied them to
his super car. On social media Coco
was pictured tucking into her two
cakes at her own birthday
celebration.
As if all is not enough, Sicong opened
an online shop to mark her birthday.
The new online shop, called Coco
Wang, sells a line of doggie-inspired
toys and accessories, from tote bags,
flasks to mobile phone cases. All of
them carry cartoon illustrations of
the fluffy pet.
And when Coco goes on holiday, she
travels in first-class style.
In last November, she rode on a
private jet and was chauffeur driven
to the luxury accommodation during
a winter break.
The only son of mega-rich property
tycoon Wang Jianlin, 61, Wang Sicong
is the golden boy with the gentle
manner, cut-glass English accent,
who is the sole heir to his father’s
fortune.
Wang Jianlin is worth a whopping $30
billion (£23 billion), according to
Forbes.
As China’s most eligible bachelor,
Sicong is the darling of China’s
tabloids due to his enviable lifestyle
and rarely pictured with a beautiful
model on his arm.
Like most privileged children of
China’s mega-wealthy, he was
educated abroad – first at a primary
school in Singapore and then to
£30,000 a year Winchester College –
one of England’s top public schools –
and on to University College London
where he studied philosophy.
Back in China, in 2009 he was
handed a gilded position in the
Dalian Wanda conglomerate by his
father – and £53 million to start his
own business.
‘I told him I would allow him to fail
twice. If he fails for the third time,
he would have to come back and
work in my company earnestly,’ his
father told China Central Television
(CCTV).
He set up Pusi Capital, a private
equity firm based in capital city
Beijing, to invest in projects and
companies he likes.
His private equity firm has invested
in 22 companies in the past seven
years, from online gaming firms to
film-making studios to Korean
restaurants.
They help Sicong grow his portfolio
of fortune eight times – from £53
million to £430 million – in the past
six years, as revealed by Hurun Rich
List, which tracks the fortune of
wealthy Chinese businessmen.
