  1. Place warm water in large warm bowl. Sprinkle in yeast; stir until dissolved. Add warm milk, butter, sugar, salt, and 2 cups all-purpose flour; blend well. Stir in 2 eggs, whole wheat flour, and enough remaining all-purpose flour to make stiff batter. Grease top; cover tightly with plastic wrap.
  2. Refrigerate 2 to 24 hours.
  3. Remove from refrigerator. Punch dough down. Remove dough to lightly floured surface. Divide dough into 4 equal portions; set aside 2 portions. Shape 1 portion into ball for body. Place on large greased baking sheet; flatten slightly.
  4. Divide 1 portion in half; break off 3/4-inch piece, and shape into ball for nose. Shape remaining piece into ball for head. Attach head to body; pinch to seal. Attach nose to head; pinch to seal.
  5. Divide remaining half of portion into 6 equal pieces. Shape into balls, and attach to body and head to form paws and ears; pinch to seal.
  6. Press date pieces or raisins into dough for eyes and buttons. Repeat with remaining portions. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 40 to 60 minutes.
