Talk about the dog days of summer! It looks like our Upside Down Dog of the Week, Penny, from is taking advantage of all the sunny days she can to work on her tan. Penny is a 3-year-old Catahoula and Pitbull mix from Richmond, VA. Here’s what her mom Annika has to say about her:

“This derpmeister swam for hours, before deciding it was time to do a little sunbathing. She spends a lot of her time sleeping and laying around upside down, but this beat out all of the other times.”

Keep catching those rays, Penny! Come back next week to see a new Upside Down Dog.
