- From "Best Friends" magazine:
A dog, who has taken the fine art of mastering humans to a new level,
has left an animal hospital in India after recovering from kidney
problems. Sai, a seven year old white Spitz, is believed to be the
incarnation of a saint, Shirdi Saibaba, who lived 100 years ago.
The canine's heavenly status earns him some pretty special treatment.
He travels in a limo, lives in air-conditioned quarters, eats out of
cut-glass bowls, and has four attendants. Locals carry him through
town on Mondays and Thursdays, so he can spread his goodwill. Devotees
believe Sai is the saint reborn because of his perfect mannerisms,
temperament, and his apparent enjoyment of prayer sessions.
