Oh this is the night, it’s a beautiful night, and we call it bella notte...

Who knew those LEGO hot air balloon panels would make perfectly floppy pupper ears? Well as you can see, builder LEGO 7 knew. In fact, their spot-on take of the iconic spaghetti scene from Disney’s Lady and the Tramp is packed full of tremendous NPU (Nice Parts Usage) which gives these two pups a cuddly, soft appearance. The only thing missing from this creation is moonlight and accordion music.

Build your own LEGO Oliver Twist the pug dog [Instructions]

Even though The Brothers Brick’s official mascot is some type of strepsirrhine primate, our unofficial mascots have always been my pugs, first the late, great Mr. Pugsly and now Oliver Twist. TBB’s own Elspeth De Montes created a LEGO version of little Ollie for our recent calendar contest, and she has just posted simple instructions for you to build your own LEGO pug.

Waldi the dachshund from the 1972 Munich Olympics

The Olympic Games of 1972 in Munich, Germany were the first to feature a mascot. Waldi the dachshund was designed by graphic designer Otl Aicher, who modeled Waldi after a real-life doxie named Cherie von Birkenhof. Even in this simple but excellent LEGO version of Waldi by umamen, you can see the attributes of resistance, tenacity, and agility.

Classic LEGO set 212 in Miniland scale, with bonus dachshund

aurore&aube‘s favorite set of all time is the small 1976 set 212 Scooter. He celebrates this classic set by recreating it in Miniland scale. My favorite detail, though, is the extra black-and-tan dachshund that aurore&aube included. Making small-scale LEGO animals is especially challenging, though aurore&aube is no stranger to excellent LEGO creatures. The dachshund stands in an expressive pose, as though he’s about to start barking at the passing scooter.

¡Ay, chihuahua!

We’ve spent quite a bit of time in the small dog area at the park lately with Josie and our new pug Ollie, who’s doing his best to set himself apart from the distinguished life and career of the late, great Mr. Pugsly. I’ve seen more chihuahuas in the last few weeks than I’d seen for years before, so I can testify to the absolute accuracy of this wonderful pup by edulyoung — from the perky ears and shiny little bug eyes to the tiny stick legs.
