Thanks so much for the love, everyone! I'm so tickled that he's been so highly appreciated!
Luvelycritter had requested the modified pattern pieces, and I thought that others might like to take a peek at them as well. Unfortunately, the best I could do was take a digital picture of the actual pattern pieces I used. I hope someone can make use of them, regardless.
Just to give you an idea, the leg is the same shape/ size as the original poppet leg. I just enlarged the foot. The ear, of course, is a different shape, and is shown rightside up. The tail -- the shield shape in the middle -- is a cut and fold jobby. When it's all sew up, the fold goes up (curvy side down)... and don't be a space cadet like me: Place the tail low. Our poor little puppy's tail is halfway up his back.
