Assembly:   I decided to use video tutorials for an easy way to show you how to twist the balloon together πŸ™‚
1.) tail and hind legs. 

​​
To hold in place you can either sew at the twist joint or use a glue gun on the pieces. Or both!

2.) body, front legs and neck

​​
…and in true raising Robertsons fart fashion. Here’s part three interrupted by my daughter (7mo) farting. πŸ’¨

3.) ears and muzzle
