Forget The Olympics, Here's The Sausage Dog Sports Day (VIDEO)

When a village holds a dog show, it will most likely include rounds such as 'Waggiest Tail' and 'Pointiest Ears', and welcome dogs of all sizes, shapes and breeds.

The sausage dog lovers of Hampstead in north London, however, have gone one step further - and staged their very own, Dachshund-devoted sports day.

It took place on Sunday, and the events included fancy dress, running-through-tunnels, sausage-eating (though surely this borders on cannibalism?) and, as you can see from the video above, the 100 metres.
