Adorable Dog Named "Friar Mustache" is Monastery's Cutest New Friar

Meet Carmelo AKA Fray Bigotón or "Friar Mustache," an abandoned stray schnauzer who just joined (er, adopted by) a Franciscan monastery in Cochabamba, Bolivia.

"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."

The monastery adopted Carmelo through the help of a local animal rescue group called Proyecto Narices Frías or the "Cold Nose Project." It's all rather fitting that a Franciscan order adopted its newest four legged member as St. Francis is known as the patron saint of animals. That sure puts the "bite" in cenobite!
