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) 1-inch 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 3-bubble 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 3-bubble loop for the head, and 1 bubble for the neck. Push the remainder of the balloon through the 8-bubble 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, 4-bubble loop for legs and feet with the final bubble forming the tail.
