Pug Rig - Features Video WIP

I made a video which includes some features of my first character rig.  It's definitely a work in progress, and I would love some feedback on how to improve what I already have!

Patrick - Rigging Progress

Haven't posted in awhile - Moved to LA, it's been crazy!

Enough of that - Here's some progress on my rigging for Patrick the Pug:

Rig progress so far
I added a tongue "auto-curl" which is screen-right.
In addition to the "auto-curl" control, I added manual controls on the tongue for fine adjustments / ultimate control.
Same deal with the ears - there are "auto-curls" as well as manual controls.  You can use both for the highest amount of control.

Same "Auto-Curl" functionality with his tail.

What I need to work on next is the hands/feet controls, adding blendshapes for facial expressions, as well as squash/stretch where needed (his flabby cheeks maybe?).  I'm learning a ton on this project, can't wait to get it done and animate something with it.
