Dancing dogs join Copacabana party

Tuesday February 18th 2014

Dog owners partied with their pets on Copacabana beach as a pre-carnival show was held in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro.

More than 100 pooches enjoyed themselves on the golden sands as a brass band played and a singer belted out Cidade Maravilhosa (Marvellous City), Rio's anthem song.

In keeping with the party spirit of the upcoming carnival, several glamorous canines were made up like Disney cartoon favourite Snow White, a few donned tiny doggie tutus and one even sported a a forehead full on Indian bindis.

To show that dogs were not having all the fun, one cat even ventured along to enjoy the musical atmosphere and got into the spirit by floating on its owner's shoulders while wearing blue angel wings.

Hundreds of street parties are held in the city in the build-up to the world-famous carnival, which starts on the last day of February.
