I crocheted a Red and Purple Puppy for my daughter's little friend who broke both her wrist :(  I liked it so much that I wrote the pattern. This cute little Puppy can be crocheted in two days or less.  I used two colors that compliment each other. You will need the following materials:
Crochet Hook Size G-6 
Safety Oval Eyes Size 10mm
Light Pink (A)
Vanna’s Choice Baby Pink Poodle (B)
Black (C)
Cluster Fluff-fiber fill
1 Blunt Needle
Stitch Markers

SIZE: Around 11 inches long

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?

Nice work. I saw a dog like this in a store the other day for $60. Good for you.
That is such an adorable crocheted dog! He looks like he really wants to fetch a stick!
