A video clip of a dog giving blessings to devotees walking out of a temple in Maharashtra is doing the rounds on social media, leaving people amused and charmed in equal measure. 

The clip was captured by Arun Limadia, who recorded the stray dog sitting at the exit gate of the Siddhivinayak Temple in Ahmednagar district’s Siddhatek area. He is seen shaking hands and occasionally blessing people with his furry paws. Limadia shared the video on Facebook, which received over 13,000 likes and over 1,000 comments. 

Another user shared a video of the same dog on Instagram. The dog apparently holds court every day at the same temple to greet visitors, according to account @smalltobigtails, an online platform to discuss issues related to canines.

Everything is paw-sibble, especially when you have an adorable dog putting the stamp on your wishes.
