In a kitchen aid stand mixer add all the ingredients except the butter knead with dough hook to form a cohesive, sticky mass, 2 to 3 minutes on low speed of a stand mixer.
Gradually add butter and incorporate about 1 minute on low speed. Once all the butter is incorporated, turn the mixer up one speed and knead the dough.
Until it is smooth and supple though still somewhat soft and tacky, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Cover the dough and let it rest in a warm (75°F) place for 8 to 12 hours. To develop strength in the dough, stretch and fold it in the bowl three to four times during the rest. This will increase the elasticity of the dough.
Next morning divide the dough and shape it into various animal-shaped dough.
Divide the dough into two pieces one is ¾ while rest is ¼ pieces.
Then divide ¾ piece into seven 52 g each piece. This is for the bear, and bird shaped bread.
For the dog shape divide the rest of the dough into two pieces on is slightly larger than other. First roll it into cylinder. Cut it in the middle from both sides leaving some space in the middle. Fold back portion to make back two legs. And front portion to make front legs.
Rest of piece spread it into a small oval shape and make slit from the middle to side in top portion. Then roll the dough through the slit like a croissant. This will make both ear and face of the doge. Then place raisins for eyes and red chili for the tongue.
Set aside for 1 hour.
