Isn’t this a sweet picture?  This has been floating around Facebook and the internet.  The only story I can find is this little homeless dog was found snuggled in baby Jesus’ manger in a Nativity display in Criciuma, Santa Catarina, Brazil.   Parishioners were so touched by this scene that they didn’t have the heart to shoo the little dog away. 

That’s all I could find.  Snopes doesn’t have anything on these pictures other than a short discussion where they may have been taken in December 2008.  Others swear these pictures were taken in 2009.  And no one really knows what happened after that.  There are some comments that he was adopted but that cannot be confirmed.  I guess we will never know.  

But is that so terrible?  Not at all.  Let your heart give you the answer.
