What do you think? Does it look like a dog? DH says it looks like a rat. And I think maybe a Kangaroo. icon_cry.gif He's supposed to be standing on his hind legs...

You want honesty....I agee with hubby....little like a mouse. Not sure why. Tail makes it a dog, but body seems like a mouse. But it is cute!

I think it looks cute but would hate if someone told me that and then not what it really looks like. Think it looks adorable but to me it sort of looks like a kangaroo (more like a wallaby) but I think it's the back legs that does that. It looks better than anything I could do so please don't take anything I say as offensive.

I think it looks a little like a wolf. It has the long nose like a wolf. I love it.

I think he looks like a dog, the only thing where I could think that people are thinking another animal, is because when most people see dogs they see floppy ears, not so much the short/small ears, but when we had dogs as a kid we had chihuahuas, so I am use to the ears, but everyone is different. I love him!!! Good job!!!!

My 5 year old just walked by and said "aww... what a cute kangaroo"

I agree, its the hind legs that throw you off.

But its cute!!

Im with you I think it looks like a kangaroo... but boy how cute he is.. Maybe if you change the ears like veronica said it might help a little..

LOL! Thanks guys! I knew he looked a little "off". Maybe I can rework the head/ears a little and see if i can cut down the legs somewhat. I hope he isn't too dry by the time I get home from work. If so, I can always save him for a kangaroo cake?! LOL

I can see the kangaroo-ish quality! But as mentioned, he is absolutely adorable! Definitely don't scrap him!! Good luck!

My gauge for whether things look realistic is always to ask my son -- Kids have a pretty good perception and he said mouse. I think your detail on him is really adorable and I can't wait to see what you come up with next.

It's the back legs that make him look like a Kangaroo icon_smile.gif
If you rotate the top of his rear legs ( thigh ),towards his tail a bit more, it may fix it ( did I make sense ?! )
He's very cute tho icon_biggrin.gif

What do you think? Any better?

OMG what a terrific change! I thought he definitely looked like a dog before...a kangaroo-like dog, but still a dog.

But now, I daresay you've "nailed it". The ears are perfect, his muzzle is a little more doggy and the reduced legs add just the right touch. CUTE!

Well I thought it kind of looked like a wolf before and thought he was very cute but he looks like a big ole happy dog now. Awesome job

hehe.. its cute.

My 5 year old called it a "kanga-dog" this time. Only because she remembered me asking this morning what it was and her answer was kangaroo... now she said its a dog, but shes confused...

I think its a dog now.. very cute!

I'd stretch out the hind legs a bit. When our dog stands up, his legs are stretched rather than crouched like yours.
But it's still great!!

Do not change him any more!!!! You did an awesome job before, and you did an awesome job the second time, you go back again and it will be something totally off which will change the whole character of what you are going for, he is PRECIOUS!!!! If you have any children's book around, you can always use those as guides. People sometimes think you need the fancy cake books as a guide, just look how simple they make their animals, people, objects, etc. in those books, coloring books, and so on... you will be amazed at what you can come up with. Keep up the awesome work!!! Sincerely, Veronica

You could add a little happy hanging tongue and that would seal the deal for me!

I liked him before, but the ear changes changed him into a dog.
Both were cute!

I want to thank you all again for your help! The cake is done, and he looks much less kangaroo-esque! icon_smile.gif Thankfully the others looked like dogs too!

Thanks again!
