I made this cake for Grace's 9th birthday. She wanted another dog cake but I didn't have much time so did a much more simple cake than the previous dalmation cake. One of Grace's presents was sponsorship of a guide dog. He's called Truffles, is a puppy a few months old, and (thankfully) doesn't look much like this cake. Hopefully the same number of eyes, eyes and feet, and is approaching the same colour.
