Here I Am, Ready To Talk About How The National Dog Show Winner Looks Like Chewbacca

IDK if you know about Newton the Brussels Griffon, but if you don’t, you should, because he’s a CHAMPION.

A Brussels Griffon is a breed of small dog.

He won the Purina Dog Show on Thanksgiving, but that’s not why I brought you here today.


I brought you here because Newton looks like a Wookie.

In fact, Newton looks so much like Chewbacca, I’m having a hard time remembering which one of them copiloted the Millennium Falcon.

And here’s my theory: I’m thinking a “Brussels Griffon” is a
Wookie/Ewok mix, because that’s what Newton looks like.

And it wouldn’t surprise me at all if he was an intergalactic superhero, because he’s a very good boy, and I’m confident there’s nothing he can’t do.


Newton, I will happily join your alliance because I think you’re cute AF.

Good morning to Newton, this year's Dog Show winner, and no one else.

Congrats on winning Best in Show!
