Nickname: Chewie

Age: 2 years old

Hometown: Bloomington, Indiana

Major: Leisure Studies

Campus Activities: Being adorable, walking on Middle Path, bringing joy to music students in Storer lounge, wearing sweaters


HCK: Hi Chewie! You’re pretty well known around campus as one of the cutest dogs ever. How does it feel?

Chewie: It feels pretty deserved.


HCK: What is your favorite thing about Kenyon?

Chewie: I like that most of the students on the path like to pet me! And that the music students play with me in the lounge.


HCK: So if a student sees you on campus, do you want them to pet you?

Chewie: YES!!!!!!!!


HCK: Do you enjoy hanging out in the music lounge with all the music students? What kind of stuff do you guys do?

Chewie: We run, jump, laugh, and play. We just run around all day.

HCK: In addition to be totally adorable, you also have a reputation for being very stylish. What is your favorite outfit to wear?

Chewie: My Chewbacca jacket, for which I am named. My mom bought the jacket before she even had me!


HCK: Do you have any fashion advice for other dogs on campus?

Chewie: Be yourself, don’t care what others think, and if you think someone is making fun of you, they’re probably not. They’re probably squeeing over how cute you are. Also, find a wealthy pet parent to fund your wardrobe.


HCK: What are you going to be for Halloween?

Chewie: A hot dog! My mom said I didn’t really need a costume (because I’m already a hot dog, if you know what I mean) but I got one anyway.

HCK: What do you like to do in your free time?

Chewie: Mostly nap. And also eat, beg for human food, eat human food, and play with toys. I also practice tricks, though that’s really hard.

HCK: What’s your favorite toy to play with?

Chewie: There’s this really fat, round owl that I love to play with! I’ve chewed off the eyes. I also chew the left one off first, then the right. I love stuffed animals with plastic eyes!



HCK: You live in a very musical family. Do you enjoy playing music too?

Chewie: I’ll sing along if it gets loud enough!


HCK: Who is your favorite composer?

Chewie: My mom!

Thanks, Chewie! Can’t wait to see you walking down Middle Path or hanging out in Storer lounge!
