Photographer Rocio Preciado explains the background of the wonderful relationship between a boy and his dog:
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 (in 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.
Have a look at the behind-the-scenes of this photoshoot:
The cats of The Hermitage aren't the only famous felines in St. Petersburg, Russia anymore!
Cats Republic is a café with a twist: it has resident kittehs for patrons to play with every time they visit! To make sure no harm befalls these friendly felines, visitors are required to apply for a Visa in order to be granted entry into the coffee/cat haven.
Regulars have "adopted" their favorite cats among the resident bunch of kitties, and there's even a wall where visitors can measure their height in cats! Sounds like a pretty darling place to grab a drink, if you ask me!
