The main cathedral in the city of Cochabamba in Bolivia has witnessed a lot of inspirational moments in its long history. But perhaps never one quite like this. Earlier this week, the priest was giving a special mass for children with cancer. It was an emotional service meant to console and raise up the spirits of the kids and their family members.
Suddenly, the mass was interrupted by a visitor who just happened to wander in off the streets. A four-legged one to be exact.
The stray went straight for the central aisle and made itself at home, rolling around on the floor and making adorable faces.
The people in the church burst out laughing at the pup's antics. But it was the priest's reaction that was simply the best. Instead of tossing the animal out, he allowed it to stay, explaining that the dog was the Lord's creature and was happy there.
And the dog gave that happiness back! To double yours, scroll down and click through too-cute photos of smiling pooches!
