It's canine party time in Brazil! This colourful poodle took part in the Blocao dog carnival in Brazil on Sunday.
The Blocao dog carnival is the puppy equivalent of the Rio Carnival. Millions of people attend the Rio Carnival every year to see the fantastic costumes on show and these pooches didn't want to miss out.
100 dogs took part in the colourful costume parade. From dapper feather hats...
Is that Minnie Mouse? No, it's just a dog in costume!
Cats were welcome at the parade too. This refined moggy came dressed in its best.
...to loud floral garlands. Dog owner Fabricio Gonsalves explained: "Dogs love Carnival too!"
A brass band and singer added to the buzz of the parade by performing Rio's anthem "Cidade Maravilhosa" which means Marvelous City.
This dog has come cunningly disguised as a rabbit.
Rio has hundreds of street parties in the weeks leading up to the big Carnival which starts on 28 February this year.
