Hello, it’s Alex from The Junior Club here.
This week I read about a dog that looks like a monkey. How cool is that?
The dog is called Banana Joe and he is an ‘Affenpinscher’, which is German for ‘monkey terrier’.
I’ve been trying to come up with a name for an animal which is a cross between a dog and a monkey, but haven’t had much luck.
If you take the first first part of ‘dog’ and the second part of ‘monkey’ you get ‘do-nkey’, so we can’t have that.
The other way round would give you ‘mog’ which is another name for a cat so we can’t have that either. What would you call a half dog – half monkey?
Actually I don’t think Banana Joe really looks like a monkey. I think he looks more like an Ewok. What do you think? Let me know in the comment box below.
