Praying Canines

A dog in Japan joins in daily prayers at the local Buddhist temple.

I have a former tenant who had a dog that also prayed. When the owner said, "Ginger, pray to Jesus" the dog would sit up, put her paws in a prayerlike fashion, and look to the sky. She, too, was a Chihuahua.

Perhaps that breed is slightly more religious than other more agnostic breeds. I can see a Chihuahua being a Christian or even Catholic, but I'd like to know how the Japanese Chihuahua became Buddhist, or for that matter how a Chihuahua became Japanese.
