Instead of the traditional apple-head doll, create a French bulldog, decked out in a jaunty beret. Peel an apple, leaving the skin near the stem intact. Carve a face and the outlines of the ears with a plastic knife. Mix 1/2 cup lemon juice with 1 1/2 teaspoons salt. Roll the apple in the solution, let it sit for a few minutes, then pat it dry. Over the next two weeks, store it on a wire rack in an oven with the light on (whenever it's not in use). When the apple is shriveled and dry, make a cut under each ear to separate it from the head. Press in black-eyed pea eyes and rice teeth. Set your pup on a paper collar with or without metal studs.
