'Star Wars' fans: Munchkin the dog's cute Ewok impression is a must-see

The famed Shih Tzu known as Munchkin the Teddy Bear has a new YouTube video, and you don't have to be a "Star Wars" fan to find it dog-gone adorable.

Posted Friday, the video shows the 4-year-old pup in her usual teddy-bear get-up, plus a few accessories to make her look like an Ewok β€” the cuddly cosmic creature that made its debut in 1983's "Return of the Jedi." The video's collected more than 95,000 views, likely because, to paraphrase Darth Vader in the first "Star Wars" installment, "The cute is strong with this one."

The California canine took her teddy-bear antics to the treadmill and a sleigh to close out the year, and more cuteness followed in 2015.
