Cut 2 small triangles from each end of "tail;" place on top of "head" for ears. Place "tail" to side of "body," trimming to fit as needed.

Place peanut butter cups and red gumdrop on "head" for "nose". Place strip of fruit snack around "neck" for collar; add chocolate coin for tag. Break each piece of spaghetti into 3 equal pieces; insert at an angle next to "nose" for whiskers.
