Conan - A monk dog

At a Zen Buddhist temple in Southern Japan, not only people pray there but also dog.
Conan, a dog in Japan that can pray in Buddhist sytle. Mimicking his master, priest Joei Yoshikuni, a 1 1/2-year-old black-and-white Chihuahua named Conan joins in the daily prayers at Naha’s Shuri Kannondo temple, sitting up on his hind legs and putting his front paws together before the altar. Isn't it cute?

“I think he saw me doing it all the time and got the idea to do it, too,” Yoshikuni said.
Mr Yoshikuni said it only took Conan a few days to imitate the motions of praying.

The priest is now trying to teach him how to meditate. Well, sort of.
“Basically, I am just trying to get him to sit still while I meditate,” he explained. “It’s not like we can make him cross his legs.”
Apparently, Conan also prays before going out for walks, or before feeding time.

Conan was named after the mystery writer, Arthur Conan Doyle ^^ ~ Detective Conan - Japanese anime hehe... (one of my roommate fav)
