RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil - It’s Carnival time and it’s not just two-legged residents getting in on the party. The four-legged party animals have their own Carnival parade.

The street party along the famous Copacabana Beach is the only Carnival celebration just for dogs.

This year the furry fun included beer just for dogs — the non-alcoholic brew came with a hint of meat flavoring.

More than six million people are expected to descend on Rio in February for Carnival.
