Dog - student project

I hope this shows up!
I am getting the most amazing help of the teacher on Instagram and I wanted to say one thing: THANK YOU!!!!

I have no idea what to do with the mouth (and tongue). The teacher asked if I could post it here. :)

(I am still busy with it and learning but you can see all the progress on my Instagram @kaqisiawaii and do not forget to look at the teacher her Instagram @margawart!)
