what if you are doing Boolean Difference, and that doesn't work either, then what do you do cuz the technique in the cartoon dog tut. doesn't work on Boolean Difference

boolean is unpredictable, if it doesnt work then you'll have to do it manually- line up the lines of both objects to the area you want to combine.

then polygons-> combine
then right click-> vertex
then edit polygons -> merge vertexs.
