Throw a cos­mic paw-ty in cel­e­bra­tion of Star Wars Day.

Nope, there's no clone army here—just Fido and his hun­gry friends. Sat­isfy your furry guests with these Star Wars- in­spired doggy snacks. Turn sticks of jerky into beam­ing lightsabers by coat­ing them in coloured yo­ghurt; trap Hans Solo in car­bonite by freez­ing him in blue jello; and pipe your favourite Star Wars char­ac­ters (us­ing mashed potato frost­ing) over frozen peanut but­ter and ba­nana pup­cakes!

Tip: While food colour­ing is safe for pups in small amounts, you can also make your own all-nat­u­ral dye out of fruits and veg­eta­bles, such as beet, spinach, blue­ber­ries, turmeric and cin­na­mon.

Just as BB-8 was a trusty as­sis­tant to Re­sis­tance X-wing fighter pi­lot Poe, he'll be­come Fido's best bud. Craft your own lit­tle BB-8 treat dis­penser out of sty­ro­foam balls and coloured mark­ers, and cut a lit­tle hole at the bot­tom to make room for your furkid's favourite snack.

Tip: Join the two parts with small tooth­picks, and only al­low your pooch to play with it un­der su­per­vi­sion.

Which dog doesn't love a good paw-ty, es­pe­cially one with meaty lightsabers? Here's how to throw a fur-bu­lous space-orama for your furry Jedi and his best pals. BY GIL­LIAN LIM

What's a Star Wars paw-ty with­out Stormtroop­ers, X-wing Starfight­ers, TIE fight­ers, and of course the Mil­len­nium Fal­con? Set the scene for some light­speed ac­tion with these easyto-make dec­o­ra­tions! In­flate white bal­loons and use black per­ma­nent mark­ers to draw Stormtrooper faces; and print and cut out coloured sil­hou­ettes of the ga­lac­tic ve­hi­cles and lit­tle stars, then string them up on the wall.

Cre­ate your own flow­ing robes for aspir­ing Jedi pup­pers by sewing brown cloth to­gether and cut­ting holes for his head and arms. If your hand­i­craft skills aren’t the best, don’t fret—the more rugged, the bet­ter! Top your furkid’s frock off with a rope and he’s ready to dish out peace and jus­tice in the gal­axy as the Cho­sen One.

Tip: Reuse Christ­mas tree tin­sel for that extra shim­mer. Tip: Opt for hot glue guns or fab­ric glue for a quicker fix. PHO­TOS ED­DIE TEO STYLING & ART DI­REC­TION LIM KAY LI PET MODEL RUBY (@RUBYTHEMALTIPOO15)
