Meet Carmelo, an amazing little creature who is both a dog and a friar. That's quite a feat and an adorable one at that.
This Friar Dog is Worth All The Praise Hand Emojis
Carmelo is a former stray who has been adopted by the friars at the Franciscan monastery of Cochabamba, Bolivia.
Carmelo doesn't just live at the monastery, he's a member of the order, The Dodo reports. He even has an official title: Friar Bigotón (Spanish for "Friar Mustache").
He even has his own habit.
"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."
We almost can't handle the cuteness.
But not so much that we wouldn't welcome more pictures of Friar Bigotón in the future, hint, hint.
