It’s really simple to make, too. My 10 year old watched me make one and made one even ten times cuter than mine. 🙂

  • Glue 4 total of the Hershey’s Kisses on both sides of the Smarties – and on both ends, making the 4 legs for the doggie

  1. Curly Dogs are the cutest.. My neighbor has day care kiddos, and I try to do something for them on some of the holidays.. these are perfect!! I am going to use dove wrapped hearts tho for the feet…Great Ideas!!!!

    • That will be so cute! Thank you for hanging around to leave me such a nice comment. Happy Valentine’s Day!

  2. LOVE them – I’m going to make some for the big “kids” – ha – on my list. We gotta have fun too. 🙂

  3. Realize that the back 2 legs need to be glued higher up on the kiss so doggy is standing like he’s down on his front legs with his fanny in the air – like dogs do when they want to look extra cute.

    • That sounds too cute! Please Tag me if you share it on social media so I can see a picture of that adorable doggie! 🙂
