1 Dec No Comments admin Pet of the Month

Welcome to our Pet of the Month feature, where we showcase pets of all shapes and sizes from our doctors, staff and friends.

With a new Star Wars movie in theaters this month, it seems appropriate to announce that our pet of the month is none other than this adorable Shih Tzu, Chewie!

Chewie is Korina’s 5 year old puppy. He was bought for her son as a Christmas present and Korina’s husband named him Chewie because he looks like Chewbacca from the Star Wars films.

In Chewie’s mind, he is Wookiee-sized. He thinks he’s a much bigger dog than he is and loves bossing around his pitbull sister. He also loves his grandpa and goes crazy whenever somebody even mentions him.

Chewie is an animal lover, which is a good thing because an employee at a veterinary hospital tends to collect animals. No matter what animal comes into the house – dogs, bearded dragons, squirrels – Chewie enjoys having them around. He also happens to love cuddling and chasing RC cars.

As you can imagine, Chewie is a very happy puppy, and we think we will especially love being December’s Pet of the Month. May the Furs be with you, Chewie!
