Red 5 standing by

3 May

In honour of unofficial Star Wars Day, which is tomorrow, here are my top five favourite pictures of dogs getting their geek on.

5. Chewbacca dog

When he’s not co-piloting the Millennium Falcon, Chewbacca dog likes to ride shotgun in an SUV. Who knew?

Look carefully – this dog is not even wearing a costume, he just looks like that ALL THE TIME.

4. Princess Leia dachshund

Just look at her: the little hair buns and white robe – so sweet! And with those big sad eyes, it’s like she’s about to say, “Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi. You’re my only hope!”

3. Ewok dogs

Although Ewoks are a controversial subject among hardcore Star Wars fans, as a lover of all things cute and fluffy I’m going to come out on the pro-Ewok side of the debate. Besides, if it weren’t for furry characters like Wicket and Chief Chirpa, we wouldn’t have this adorable photo of cosplay canines.

2. AT-AT dog

Bones the Greyhound does not look overly thrilled by his AT-AT costume. Probably since he was hoping to be stationed somewhere warm, like Naboo, but now realises he’s headed to Hoth.

1. Wampug!

The actual Wampa was a  scary monster that hung Luke up in the deep freeze, with plans for a Skywalker-cicle as an after-dinner treat. The Wampug, on the other hand is an adorable pup named Chubbs who will warm your heart.

Happy Star Wars Day tomorrow, everyone. May the fourth be with you.
