Two dogs play at the pool at the Coolbaby dog theme park in Beijing May 20, 2006. The newly opened dog theme park, the first in China's capital, has swimming pool, obstacle courses, playground and has a restaurant especially designed for pets. Not only can pets have meals together with their owners, but the recipes offered are based on nutritional science and tailored for dogs of different breeds, ages and sizes. Raising dogs was banned under the rule of late Chinese leader Mao Zedong as a bourgeois pastime and was only made legal a few years ago once living standards rose with the economy. According to the Chinese lunar calendar, 2006 is the year of the dog. REUTERS/Claro Cortes IV
