This Monastery Adopted A Stray Dog, Now He Enjoys His Life As A Monk

Meet Friar Bigotó n (Friar Moustache), the stray doggie who just became a member of a St Francis Monastery in Cochabamba, Bolivia. The saint after which the Franciscan order was established is known as the patron of animals, so it’ s only natural that the monks extended their helping hand to the pooch living on the streets. Now he is one happy doggie who gets to enjoy life to the fullest. “ His life is all about playing and running, ” fellow friar Jorge Fernandez told The Dodo. “ Here, all of the brothers love him very much. He is a creature of God. ”

Friar Bigotó n even reaches wear a habit. Maybe inspired by his outfit, the doggie was caught seriously attending to his monk duties: “[Here’s] Brother Carmelo preaching to the fish, ” wrote Franciscan Kasper Mariusz Kaproń, who first posted these adorable photos online.

“ If only all the churches of our country [would] adopt a dog and care for him like Friar Bigotó n, ”   Proyecto Narices Frí as (Cold Nose Project), a local animal rescue, wrote in a post on Facebook, “ we are sure that the parishioners would follow his example. ”
