Sure, there are more examples, but folks are also showing the force is with their dogs through funny videos, be it a puppy playing with BB-8, Dachshunds re-enacting the famous light saber duel between Luke and Darth, or dogs singing the oh-so-well recognized tune that typically accompanies the bad guys.
