Would it be possible to use the puppy dog tutorial from just frosting on this one??

Yes-you could use justfrosting's tutorial. I did it a couple of weeks ago and it is pretty easy! If you look in my pictures you'll see the dog cake I did-it has the same colors and patterns as my dog, Daisy (in my avatar). Get a good picture of the chihuahua that you're going to do so you will get the colors right. The only thing is-does she want it standing? Because justfrosting's tutorial has the dog lying down and she uses the grass tip for the hair. Chihuahuas usually have short hair, so you may not want to use that certain tip-I don't know what other tip, though. My dog is a Jack-Russell which also has the short hair, but I used the grass tip anyway-it still came out good. HTH!! icon_smile.gif
