It looks like Emperor Palpatine, Darth Vader and his evil Galactic Empire are now enlisting Dobermans as Stormtrooper soldiers. Dobermans were used in previous wars here on earth, so it’s not surprising the evil forces would find our Dobermans useful in war again.
The new Star Wars movie is being released next week. And for our Star Wars fans, this post is for you. While I’m not a big fan of dogs wearing costumes, they can be fun. Costumes may even help our Dobermans get a better reputation. And the geek in me loves the Star Wars mania. I especially like the idea of Star Wars fans coming together for the purpose of doing charity work. The 501st Legion is one international group that enjoys the Star Wars culture while doing fundraising and volunteer charity work.
The new canine Stormtrooper, Penny Bark-Bark is a 4-year-old Doberman, owned by Sabrina of California. She made the Doberman star wars costume out of craft foam to make it light and comfortable for her dog to wear. You can see how she made the costume and the stormtrooper helmet here. Sabrina is very talented, she’s also made a Ghostbusters and Iron-Man costume for Penny.
Here are some more Star Wars inspired Dobermans.
What do you think? Are Star Wars fans nuts? Is it ok to dress up our Dobermans?
