    i've known ever since i started researching alaskan malamutes over 2 years ago that george lucas had a malamute that was his inspiration for chewy, but i wasn't sure how much my dog had in common with his ancestor. well, he just turned 2 years old in january and for the first time i heard it. my dog has always howled and talked more than barked, most of the time just sounding like a roo-roo sound, but today i finally heard the chewy voice, plain as day. if anyone had been here to hear it, they would've sworn star wars was playing. i now have no doubt in my mind that my dog and chewbacca are related. if i could get him to do it on command, i'd make a fortune! not really, but i'd be cool.

    My pug Trog looks like an Ewok. He moves his head like them and makes faces like them too.

    Whenever I play the scene in TESB when Chewie is choking Lando and growling, my border collie howls like crazy.[​IMG]
