The bichon is so cute! Do you have the pattern for this? Also what kind of yarn did you use?

Thank you so much, Susana!  :o)  So glad you like her!

No, I'm sorry I don't have a pattern for them, but they are made up of simple shapes.  I made them in one piece, using short rows to make the muzzle stick out, but you could easily make a tapered tube for the body and an oval for the head, and then sew them together.  I used needle shaping (using yarn or thread and a large needle) to pull and push the muzzles into the shapes I wanted.  Both pups were knit in the same way (except for the ears, of course) as the Pocket Lambies and the Christmas Reindeer and Moose (or 'Meeses' as I like to say), just the needle shaping made the muzzles look as they do.

I used Bernat Soft Boucle for these, and the Pocket  Lambies, with size US 4 or 5 needles.  The Pocket Lambies have the knitting right side out (knit side out), and the Pocket Pups are turned inside out (purl side out) for more curls.
