This is Monkey, a 1.5 year-old male Labrador Retriever from Dyersburg, Tennessee. My dog, Monkey, is a big dog. Most people wouldn't believe it but he's the biggest chicken. Being so big, you would think he wouldn't be afraid of anything. Wrong. He runs from rabbits, birds, vacuums, and even balloons! We once had a Valentine's balloon and he would walk all the way on the other side of the room, staring it down, just trying to avoid getting near it. He's such a big baby. I guess why that's why we think it's so funny when other people are afraid of him. This is my dog Monkey. :) Photo sent by Destiny.
