Animals, Dogs, and Facebook: did you know? A stray dog in Bolivia joined a monastery and became a monk. The resident monks of St. Francis Monastery, named for the patron saint of animals, decided to adopt a dog they call 'Friar Bigotón' from the Cold Nose Project, which hopes the dog's story will now inspire more monasteries to take in homeless pets.

Charlie, Family, and Gif: did you know? Lambert the lion is just like Linus from Charlie Brown: he always needs a blanket. It all started when he was illegally purchased by a family that let him sleep in their beds. By the time he was rescued, he couldn't survive the wild so his caretaker gave him a blanky, he curled right up and went to sleep, and he's been cuddling them ever since.

Lambert had to be relocated from his ‘home’ after the man who purchased him realized he couldn’t properly care for him. He had acquired Lambert after taking his 2-year-old and 3-year-old kids to see the Lion King. They told him they wanted a Simba, so he went out and bought them one. Illegally. After 3 months, they decided to give him away, and he was eventually taken to the In-Sync Exotics rescue. When he arrived at his new enclosure, Lambert started pacing around, showing signs of anxiety. “We had heard from the previous owners that he slept in the bed with the grandfather.” “I started thinking, ‘Okay, he’s used to being in a house, he’s used to sleeping in the bed with grandpa.’ So I got him a blanket, went into the enclosure and put the blanket in one of the corners.  “He curled up on that blanket and he went right to sleep. Ever since then, I always give him a blanket.” And he always loooooves it. HT/ The Dodo   Photos via In-Sync Exotics
