Chewbacca or "Chewy" is the Perkinses' huge, black, 8-month-old Labrador dog. He is lovable, but mischievous, has lots of energy, loves visitors, and is a handful when he's on a walk.
One time, he ran away from Claudia while she picked up Myriah from a bus stop. He ate a tray of homemade chocolate chip cookies. He can work his own hook from his leash loose. Chewy is entered in the BSC pet show and wins the prize for "Strongest Pet."
