Think your dog is clever? Buddhist bow-wow
The newest acolyte at a temple on an outlying South Korea island is a dog who has learned to sit, stay and perform Buddhist prayer rituals alongside the monks.

Monks at Buljang Temple on Chindo island off the south-west coast said the stray, called Hama, now joined them at prayer.

Hama - Korean for hippopotamus - follows monks into the temple and bows in the same manner for prayer, a temple official said. Some local Buddhists, who believe in reincarnation, are wondering what Hama may have been in a past life.

Can he get his own Bonio from the box though? That's the mark of a truly smart dog!
