Dogs in the Olympic Games

The 2016 Summer Olympic Games starts officially today – or early morning Saturday, Central European Time.

I have always been of the opinion that there should be some dog sports in the Olympic Games. Agility is a dog sport close to the equestrian sports that has been included in many games. Dog sled racing should be included in the winter games.

There is an old April Fools Joke about Poodle clipping being an olympic sport in the 1900 Olympic Games. This is not true. It would not be a good olympic sport either, involving just Poodles.

The Olympic Games are interesting, nevertheless.
