Dogs Dressed as Ewoks

I can never decide whether or not I find dogs dressed in costumes to be funny or sad. It’s hard not to feel sorry for the ones with sad eyes that look like they don’t want to be wearing whatever outfit their owners have crammed them into … but on the other hand, I’m sorry, every time I see a dachshund dressed up like a hot dog, I laugh. It’s a fine line to walk, I’ll admit.

That being said, here are 15 pictures of dogs dressed as Ewoks. Now that I think about it, a half-Ewok, half-dog would be pretty cool. Owning a pet that could both fetch the paper and sing “Yub Yub!” to you while you read it would be pretty awesome indeed.

    What’s either sad or awesome (I can’t decide which) is that those dogs’ faces look exactly like the ewoks. I’d swear that they just copied some dogs when they first decided to make the ewok costumes.

    (Bit of trivia for those who don’t already know, “ewok” actually stands for “economy wookie”. It was originally intended to be the wookie homeworld, but they realized that making dozens of full sized wookie costumes covered in horsehair would be insanely expensive, so they decided to shrink the concept down.)

  2. Since George Lucas had a dog named “Indiana,” the same dog that he modeled Chewbacca after, it’s certainly possible that the Ewoks were based on dogs as well.
