Inflate a 260 balloon about 9 inches and tie it off.You will need every bit of that long tail because this sculpture uses 30 (count 'em) 1inch bubbles. Twist 5 bubbles and loop twist the first twist to the last one. This forms the tail, hind legs and hind feet of poodle 1.
Next twist 9 bubbles, and twist lock the first new twist to the last. Bubble number 6 is the body of poodle 1, and bubbles 7 thru 14 will become the four forelegs and feet of the two poodles.
Twist a bubble for the neck(#15), followed by a 3bubble loop for the head (#'s 16  18) and one more for the nose.
Now begin on the second poodle. You need 1 bubble for the nose, a 3bubble loop for the head, and 1 bubble for the neck. Push the remainder of the balloon through the 8bubble loop you made earlier.
Looking at the bottom of the sculpture, arrange the remainder of the balloon so that there are 4 bubbles of the loop on each side of it. Twist the two pairs of bubbles nearest the remainder (shown in a darker color in the drawing) as a unit to secure the last twist in place and to keep the feet bubbles together. All that remains is to finish the second poodle to match the first  1 bubble body, 4bubble loop for legs and feet with the final bubble forming the tail.
