I am making this now, but I am having trouble with the tail. The tail I made with these instructions looks more like one for a jack russel terrier instead of the one in the picture. The one in the picture has more rows and a curve to it. I'm not very good at these. Am I doing something wrong? I really loved the one in the picture. Can someon3 help me finish my dog?

You just need to shape it in a curve as you stuff it.
