ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Happy canines and their proud humans can each get a sun bed, and take a dive in the blue sea at Monty's Dog Beach Bar in Croatia. Fifteen owners and their dogs took part in a race at the bar on Sunday (August 20), running down the pier and then jumping into the water and swimming about 100 meters to the shore. The fastest four-legged athlete of the day was Nimbus, a four-year-old mixed breed Samoyed, who finished the course along with his owner in a few minutes, winning a seven kilogram bag of dog food and a weekend at a local hotel. Furry pets who were more into eating than running on Sunday competed in eating contests in which they tucked into specially made ice cream, cakes and beer.
