This is the heart-warming moment a determined dog joined dozens of Buddhist monks on a pilgrimage - battling its way across a raging river. The pet pooch from a temple in Chiang Mai, northern Thailand, went along with the younger novice monks and several older men for a 329km trek across the region. When they reached a treacherous river the brave dog was filmed clambering across a bamboo pole bridge which the group had built in order to cross the torrent.
Head monk Phra Arunmatee Puttipat Ranan said: ''This was a meditative walking journey for monks and younger novices. The trip is taken as a pilgrimage journey where participants get to practice and strengthen their inner self. The pup stayed with the group from beginning till the end. He was very strong.''
