The Force is cute with these two. Han Solo and Chewbacca may be intergalactic smugglers, but thanks to photographer and life-long Star Wars fan Rocio Preciado of Cuije Photo, they’re also the cutest guns for hire in the known universe. Preciado arranged this endearingly awesome Star Wars-themed photo shoot to celebrate the 12th birthday of her long-haired dachshund Chewbacca. She made Han Solo and Darth Vader costumes for her two nephews and a dog-sized bandolier for little Chewie.

Preciado describes the geektastic photo shoot:

“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!!”

Preciado also created this sweet behind-the-scenes video:

I need a place or at least a place for 2 ferrets to stay in Minnesota

I need a place or at least a place for 2 ferrets to stay in Minnesota

I just found out that I’m getting kicked out two months after I turn 18 (so in less than 3 months) and my mom is literally unpredictable and shes threatened to kill my ferrets before so I cant leave my ferrets here she’ll throw them out or have them put to sleep or something awful and I don’t know anyone who would want/can house a teenager and ferrets

so if someone can take 2 ferrets until I find a place that is okay w/ animals or you’re willing to take both me and the ferrets please let me know!!
I know somewhere I can stay but I can’t bring the ferrets and i’d prefer to go w/ them (though I understand how difficult that is)

I only have $225 and I don’t have a job but if I get an offer ill immediately start searching for a job there and try to have one before I moved in so that I can pay rent, for the ferrets and for myself

**if you take the ferrets** I can stock up on ferret food($8) and shampoo($11) and litter(about 38 cents per a pound) for the ferrets and I can try to send you supplies as it runs out
Ill give you a run down on how to care for ferrets if you take them but here’s a little bit about them: They need to be out of their cage for at least 3 hours a day and have their nails clipped about every two weeks and baths about the same amount. They are hyper can slip into a lot places so watch them carefully!!

I am in Minnesota about an hour south from the Twin Cities
