Inflate a 260 leaving approx. 4/5 fingers un-inflated, wrap the knot around the 2 finger pinch twist.

Then make a 4 finger bubble followed by a 2/3 finger pinch twist.

Then make another 4 finger bubble and wrap this back into the 2 finger pinch twist.

Go back up to the top of the head pinch twist with another 4 finger bubble.

We now have to make the ears, these can be either a 8/9 finger bubble.
Make two of these and then wrap the 260 back around the top pinch twist.

Make your last 4 finger bubble, you should have four now and deflate the rest of the balloon.

Tie this last 4 finger bubble into the 350 2 finger pinch twist.

Inflate a white 260 for the eyes, attach to the same pinch twist and make a 3 finger bubble,
I like to make the eyes a little smaller than the top of the head section, wrap the balloon around the top pinch twist and ears.

Make you second 3 finger bubble and wrap around the 350 pinch twist. Discard the rest of this balloon.

Pull the ears over the front face section and into place.

It does look a little donkey like here to me.

I like to put a little shock twist into the front 350 section of the head to give a little shape.

The nose is a 2 finger bubble tied not too tight,
if you tie it tightly it will look like a pinch twist and you need a more rounded shape.

Then add a little artwork.

With the four 4 finger bubbles for the top section of the head the ears sit nicely between these so that they stay in place.

If you do make the sausage dog then please post it here for us to see...............

That would be nice, hope it is of help to some of you.

Thanks for the instructions, Graham. I made this one, winging it from the photos you posted on Facebook.

This is a neat design. You need to be fairly exact with the nose and body and I should have done the eyes a bit bigger to avoid the noticeable gap at the top.
I also had no mocha 160 but I don't think the design suffered.
Thanks Graham

Thanks for posting Jeff and Stuart.

On the other thread Stuart I did the mouth and muzzle in a 260 and also the feet/legs in 260.
This is the link to the variations, sausage-dog-t10479.html
