Two Men Arrested in Saudi Arabia for Trying to Organize a Dog Show

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Two men have been arrested in Saudi Arabia for trying to organise a dog show.

They had advertised `the most beautiful dog` contest on social media, promising big prizes for the top three winners. They planned to hold the contest this Wednesday in the port city of Jeddah, to coincide with the annual Islamic holiday of Eid.

However their plans were thwarted when they were arrested on charges of dog pageantry, the Saudi Arabian newspaper Sabq reported today."

Thank God that my dog and I were more in a democracy and not in an Islamic theocracy!
