Watch This Puppy Hilariously ‘Fight’ a Fake Pug

The force is strong in this one.

Darcy Vader (yep, that’s her real and very awesome name) is a 10-week-old puppy who went into glorious battle against a stoic pug. Okay, no need to worry: it was a fake pug, and Darcy Vader played pretty sweetly.

In a hilarious and adorable clip posted by Darcy Vader’s owner James Genchi, the pup meets her new enemy head-on, by barking at it, jumping at it, and even biting its twisty, albeit fake little pug tail. Towards the end of the clip, the plastic pug takes a tumble to its side, so we’d say Darcy Vader won this round, even if it was something of an unfair fight.

With all that puppy nipping, maybe they should have called her Chew-bacca!
