A well-mannered golden retriever waits while his mum finishes saying prayers before eating.

Patient pooch Boone, four, stood by the side of owner Tiffany Clark at home in Greenfield, Indiana, as she prayed to the ‘puppy gods’ on June 9.

It was only after the final ‘amen’ that Boone sank his face in the bowl full of delicious dog food.

Tiffany’s husband Brent Kramer said: “He’s the most intelligent dog I’ve ever been around, he never leaves our side.”
