This is my very first pattern I've created and I wanted to share it. If there are any mistakes or confusing parts, let me know.

Rnd 7: [sc inc, sc in next 5 sc] around (42 sc)
Rnd 8: [sc inc, sc in next 6 sc] around (48 sc)
Rnd 9-16: sc around

*Attach eyes*
Rnd 12: [sc dec, sc in next 2 sc] around (18 sc)
Rnd 13: sc in next 6 sc, [sc dec] 6 times (12 sc)
Rnd 14-24: sc around
Fasten off.

Legs (make 4)
Ch. 2
Rnd 1: 8 sc in 2nd ch from hook
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc (16 sc)
Rnd 3-8: sc around
Fasten off.

Tail
Ch. 2
Rnd 1: 4 sc in 2nd ch from hook
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc (8 sc)
Rnd 3-6: sc around
Rnd 7: [sc dec] around (4 sc)
Fasten off.

Assembly
Attach bottom shell to upper shell with hdc around. Stuff firmly.
Stuff head and neck firmly, sew across bottom of neck and sew neck to shell. Sewing the back of the head to the shell will keep the head from flopping forward.
Do not stuff tail. Sew tail to shell opposite neck.
Stuff each leg firmly and sew legs to bottom of shell.
Tie bow around neck, if desired.
