'Olympets' held in Hong Kong


While athletes in China are competing for medals in the Beijing Olympic games, 400 pets have been taking part in the first ever 'Olympets' organised by a pet shop in Hong Kong.

Dogs can take part in track and field events while parrots have to climb a string as fast as they can.

In the tug of war, owners use food to catch their dogs' attention.
