Another Tuesday, another Upside Down Dog of the Week from This week’s winner is Monkey, a 9-year-old male Labrador Retriever and Collie mix from Wellington, New Zealand. Here’s what his owner Alex has to say about him:

Way to go Monkey! Tune in next week for another hilarious Upside Down Dog of the Week.
