Japanese Dog Seeks Salvation

Joei Yoshikuni was just trying to get his pet chihuahua, Conan, to be still while he prayed. Conan decided he might as well make good use of his quiet-time -- so he, too, took up the priest's ritual!

Attendance at the Buddhist Jegenin temple has risen 30% since then, with many followers attending services just to watch the little pooch pray. But, while he clasps his forepaws to his head, "It's not like we can teach him to cross his legs," Yoshikuni said.
