*set revised February, 2014 -- Chihuahua is now plush rather than molded plastic*
Julie’s Dog Walking Set
Julie helps her new friend, Joy, walk these cute dogs in Golden Gate Park:
* A Chihuahua that’s small enough to hold and comes with a faux-diamond-studded collar
* A poodle with a tie-dyed tee and a furry terrier mutt; both come with a leash
I almost didn't get these because they are only in Julie's book when her friend, Joy, is walking them. She asks Julie to come along to help out, but Julie does not.
The white poodle is a plushie and she's 4" long by 4 3/4" tall to the top of her head. Neither her sweater nor her leash can be removed. She has a sweet expression on her face.
The terrier is also a soft, furry plushie. He's 5 3/4" long by 5 1/2" tall and is totally adorable. His collar/leash also can not be removed.
The Chihuahua has a solid, hard body and is covered in flocking like the horses. Her hair bow is part of her mold. Her collar is not removable. She is 2" long x 3 3/4" tall.

The sweet dogs and Coconut for a size comparison
By far the terrier is the absolute sweetest in this set. Maybe it'll go on sale and be worth a sale price. It's not really worth $36 though. Wait for a code or coupon.
I'm thinking it won't be around long since Julie's been out for 1 1/2 years and this is the first review for this set. It must not sell well.
ETA: there were questions about the poodle(s) and if her sweater could be removed:
Both have embroidered eyes. The first version has round black eyes. The second has oval black pupil with brown iris and a dot of white to indicate a reflection.
Both have the orange vest sewn into the tummy seam AND complete fabric underneath that matches the poodle’s body! Both have attached brown collars with the leash sewn into the neck seam
