Why is This Wookiee Dog Not Mine?


It's no secret I'm a huge fan of Wookiees.  In case you've been living under a rock for the last thirty-five years and don't know what that is, Wookiees are large,intelligent fur-covered creatures native to the planet Kashyyyk in the Star Wars universe.  A Wookiee is kind of like an awesome, humanoid dog: a furry best buddy and protector.  Chewbacca is a Wookiee.  (Surely, you've heard of HIM.)

Now that we've covered that, I pose this question to you: why is this oddly-similar-to-a-Wookiee dog not mine?

If you're a Wookiee addict like me, you'll enjoy this post featuring Chewbacca singing Silent Night and this one showing a Wookiee belly-dancer doing her thing.
