Wookiee

My cousins have an adorable dog named Wookiee. They think he's around 4 years old--he was adopted from a dog rescue. We don't know what breed he is, but it's probably a mix of a couple things. In general I think of little dogs as annoying yappy creatures, but he is the most mellow dog I have ever known. Totally sweet and easy going, he loves everyone he meets, but in a chill kind of a way. Really, mellow is the term that gets thrown around him the most. His fur is silky soft, and he gets a trim every couple months so it doesn't get too long. He's just so cute, and I love that they named him Wookiee. Since I can't have a dog of my own (current house rules and I wouldn't have the time anyway), and these cousins live very close to my house, he may become my substitute dog.

I took to photographing him as he chilled out on the beach. Here are some of the shots. Enjoy!


Relaxing on the beach


He found a "ball" to play with! (I'm not sure what kind of plant it comes from... some tropical beach thing)


Walking along the beach


Taking a break again, mellow dog that he is. Good camouflage on the sand.


Can you see why they call him Wookiee?

Most appropriate name EVER.

Isn't it? Not in temperament, but I guess that makes the name even cuter.
