The son of a Chinese billionaire bought his dog eight iPhone 7s


Talk about one lucky dog!

Wang Sicong, the son of Chinese billionaire Wang Jianlin, just bought his dog, Coco, eight iPhone 7s on the day of their release. 

Photos posted to the dog's verified Weibo account, which is China's version of Twitter, show the Alaskan malamute sitting alongside all eight of her new phones.

According to CNN, the message alongside the photos said, "I don't understand all the show-off posts on (social media). What's the point? Don't make me do it?"

In China, a 256 GB iPhone 7 retails at 7,988 yuan, or about $1,198 USD, according to Business Insider. 

That means Yang could have spent up to $9,584 on iPhones for his dog. 

In the photos, it isn't clear which size phone he chose. 

Surprisingly, this isn't the first time Coco has been featured in photos with the latest technology.

In 2015, Sicong made headlines for posting photos of Coco wearing two Apple Watches with bands worth more than $37,000, according to CNN. 

Sicong was nicknamed "the nation's husband" for his status as the country's most eligible bachelor. 

Posts like this one have mostly sparked outrage and state media has criticized him for his outrageous displays of wealth.

Last year Xinhua news agency accused Sicong of having "stained the purity of the Chinese (people)."

His father responded by appearing on state television blaming his son's behavior on "Western schooling," CNN reported.
