Daniel, I like your dog!
I like it so much, that I created my own. A variation of your dog and a "running" body that Patrick  is using.

Can you see his ears sweeping to the back becourse he is running so hard??  :D



This is the dog I make most of the time, I use a different variations all the time.
There aren't 2 dog the same on 1 party:

Here's a dog I did when I was playing about with side wall bubbles. The nose is a side wall bubble which also gives the muzzle a good shape. I then coloured the nose black. I have been meaning to have another go at this model to improve it. I think the ears would look better done like grahams teddy bear arms (Model of the month June)

It is rather like twisting a small lobe on a heart, but on a straight balloon. Bend the balloon over then grab a small bubble just as you would on the heart. It's a bit tricky but once you have grabbed it and twisted it a few times, the tension keeps it quite firmly in place.

Thanks Twistina,
(I thougt it would be something like that, but didn't know it was possible!)
I've done it now, it's hard, but it worked.
Have to play and practice more with that idea!
