This is just such a cute pattern that its a shame there arent more photos, especially for the assembly section. The written instructions are clear enough, but the only photo is so small that its hard to see the details. This is especially true since the puppy is so fluffy to begin with. Can photos be added, or something else to help with the assembly?

This is so adorable! It looks just like something I made at Build a Bear as a kid, but this is a much more budget-friendly option.
