Lebanon's top dogs strut their stuff

BEIRUT: The third annual BETA Spring Dog Festival culminated with a dog show Saturday, when the Beirut Hippodrome was filled with hundreds of dogs and their owners, entering into a wide range of categories. 

From “Best dressed,” to “Most obedient” and “Best lookalike” (as compared to the dog’s owner), entrants paid a $10 fee to enter their pet into each category, helping raise money for the animal welfare charity. 

Beirut for the Ethical Treatment of Animals “rescues animals in life-threatening or dangerous situations. Unfortunately we don’t have the resources at the moment to help every stray animal on the street although we wish we could,” according to MacKenzie Lewis, BETA’s communications officer. 

Saturday was the third and final day of the festival, with live music and events for kids running at the Hippodrome, one of Beirut’s only green spaces, since Thursday.
