Check out this video of a monkey washing dishes

She's not very good at the drying part.

Lulu, a nine-year-old Golden Capuchin monkey (wiki), has been living with her owner Arthur Flemix in Benoni since she was only two weeks old.

Arthur says Lulu has been imitating his behavior - whether that is cooking, bathing or washing the dishes - for a very long time. 

If only all our pets could be this good.
Owner Arthur shared this adorable video of his monkey after catching the cute pet washing the dishes. The observant animal would watch her owner do the dishes but this time she decided to lend a helping hand as her owner cooked.
