For the tail, roll a long thin sausage shape and taper the end to a point for the tail. Using a brush of water, stick it onto the back of the body, curling it up to rest into a curl on a pot, or something similar, until the tail has dried in place.
For the bib, roll a piece of white fondant and cut triangles out for the fur. Cut a small triangle from the pink fondant for the nose.
