Something tells me I'm gunna be seeing Moomies and Elmo pretty soon!It's a dog's life for Chinese owners of the canine species – as the nation's first theme park designed for man's best friend has opened in the capital city, Beijing.
Having opened its doors at the start of this month, the Coolbaby Dog Theme Park says that it is Asia's largest such development – and possesses a range of facilities and activities to keep our canine companions well and truly content.
Plastic pylons, hoops, swimming facilities – all these and more are available for the city's dogs to run wild in, and beneath all the fun there is the vestige of a serious intention.
Spokesperson Wang Xiaoyun told CRI: "This park will be a platform for people who love dogs and other pets to exchange ideas so they can raise their pets in a better way."
Local reports claim that there are as many as half a million licensed dogs residing in the city of Beijing.
