buddhist dog

Conan, the Buddhist dog, is just too sweet not to write about.

"Buddhists clasp their palms together to pray for enlightenment, but Conan, a chihuahua, appears to have more worldly motivations.

The dog has become a popular attraction at a Japanese temple after learning to imitate the worshippers around him.

"Conan started to pose in prayer like us whenever he wanted treats," said Joei Yoshikuni, a priest at Jigenin temple on the southern island of Okinawa.

"Clasping hands is a basic action of Buddhist prayer to show appreciation. He may be showing his thanks for treats and walks," he said."


Conan is such the little cutie!

that's why I play the book on cd Life of Buddha by Karen Armstrong for my cat. It's unabridged and keeps him sane if I'm away for a day (and here's hoping it leads him to a fortunate rebirth LOL). ^_^
