Question Booleans problem (in Cartoon Dog tut.)

Hello!
I'm following the Cartoon Dog tutorial of Simply Maya and in the part 3, when I try to make an (boolean) union between the tail and the body of the dog, the top part of the tail merges to the middle part of the dog's body. Why does this happens?
I attached 1 image with 2 printscreens for you to see the problem (the first printscreen shows my 2 objects selected and the second printscreen shows the result of the union).
Thank you in advance,
Sepraud



P.S.: As this is my first post in this forum, here is my presentation: my real name is Duarte, I'm portuguese and I'm 15 years old. I'm starting to learn Maya and I hope you can help me! When I learn enough I'll try to retribute your help by helping the beginners too.

Here is the solution if anyone get this problem:
A member of other forum solved the problem by telling me to merge the vertices of the tip of the tail and making the booleans union just after that.
Regards,
Sepraud
