Meet Friar Bigotón (Friar Moustache), aka Brother Carmelo, once a stray dog, now the first canine member of a Franciscan monastery in Cochabamba, Bolivia. He even has a little doggy-sized habit to wear alongside his fellow monks.

Considering that Saint Francis is the patron saint of animals, it seems only right that a Franciscan monastery would choose to adopt an animal in need.

“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.”

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

Meanwhile it appears that Brother Carmelo is paying it forward by looking after the monastery’s fish:

hello all!

i’m doing an inquiry project for my english class on biphobia, and as a part of doing research, i’ve made a survey for people to take. i hope to get a somewhat large audience for it, so i’ve tagged some bigger bloggers that i follow to (hopefully) get the word out. (you don’t have to rb this if you don’t want to!!)

the survey shouldn’t take very long (definitely less than 5 minutes), especially so if you’re not bisexual. regardless of your orientation, it would help me out a lot if you do take this survey.

the link for it is right here. any comments on how to improve it are appreciated!

I’m running on two days of no sleep and I’m running out steam to pick names out of my loopy head. Screw it. If you’re reading this, consider yourself tagged for alerting purposes, no matter what the list above says.

And hit reblog, if you please. :)
