hahaha I love it! :applause:

It looks fine for rigging to me, do you have any specific questions on a rig for this guy, or are you looking just for general technique?

The body looks like it would be pretty simple to rig, 4 hip, knee, ankle, toe joints, assuming you won't be needing a foot roll. IK spline for the tail, so you can whip it around. The face looks like the most difficult part to me, since I'm sure you'll want some fun squash and stretch to it.

I'm not sure how much help this post is but, if there's anything more specific I might be able to make some better suggestions.

Your model has a lot of great character though, I can't wait to see it in motion :)
