COCHABAMBA, Bolivia – A dog on the streets of Cochabamba, Bolivia, has joined a Franciscan monastery.
It sounds like a joke, but according to ABC News, it’s true.
Kasper Mariusz Kapron OFM made a Facebook post Feb. 26 about the new fluffy brother — a Schnauzer named Carmelo. His formal title is Friar Bigoton, Spanish for mustache.
The organization hopes to create an example and encourage other churches in the country to take in animals in need of a home.
“His life is all about playing and running,” friar Jorge Fernandez told The Dodo. “Here, all of the brothers love him very much. He is a creature of God.”
