Photographer Rocio Preciado of Cuije Photo did this shoot, explaining it this way:

Once upon a time, in a galaxy not so far away, a furry little dachshund was born, the force was good in him, so they named him Chewbacca.

Celebrating his 12th birthday, the long haired dachshund invited his friends Han Solo and Darth Vader to a picnic at Kashyyyk, his home planet, where every day, a new adventure begins.

You would think that a dachshund and Star Wars don't mix, but you would be wrong, growing up a Star Wars fan (it her case it was more like a religion) photographer Rocio Preciado knew just what to do when the opportunity to photograph Chewbacca came along, even making up the Han Solo costume from scratch by herself, that is the kind of attention to detail that sets her apart from the rest.

Let's just wait and see what Chewie has planned for his next birthday!!

I don't "surf the net", so I don't discover these things on my own (and therefore never call out the Gawker editors for finding these items on other websites and such).

I visit io9, I put on some music, read a bit, and go to bed.

I've had a very hard day, week, month. I used to be a successful guy, but lately my life is pretty rough. Not a cry for pity; just a bit of back-story.

Thanks very much, Katherine. I so very much needed this today. Seriously- it made my day. I know it's silly, but this really moved me (I'm a dad).

Cheers.
