I have no idea where anything is. I have no idea what anything does. This is not merely a madhouse designed by a madman, but a madhouse designed by many madmen, each with an intense hatred for the previous madman's unique flavour of madness.

Too much hair, too green (kobolds have brown skin, IIRC), and kobolds don't have pipes or rocking chairs.

Basically, kobolds/kobalds/cobolds/cobalds, whatever a work calls them, are like a toned down troll, in that they vary from work to work.
Trolls are like this, to throw 3 examples out there:

Scandinavian
Troll Toy
Homestuck

Lots of variation. Since kobolds, dwarves, elves, goblins, trolls, and whatever else there is don't exist, then we can just shape them to our will, were we to create something with them in it.

Dwarves do too exist.  Though honestly that looks more like a goblin to me.

Listen up: making a thing a ‼thing‼ doesn't make it more awesome or extreme.  It simply indicates the thing is on fire.  Get it right or look like a silly poser.

It's useful to keep a ‼torch‼ handy.

I always think of Corai when I think of Kobolds. And then I think of Stargate.

The thing is, I don't even imagine them as cutebolds. I see them as little lizard people with fur instead of scales, a human-esque face with an overbite, an emphasised nose that they sniff constantly with, clawed, four-fingered hands and doggy hindlegs.

Then it happened. Then I cringed. Then I picked it up and beat him to death with it, and then his buddies, too.

I see Kobolds as small, primitive, tribal lizard people, since thinking of them as dogs reminds me too much of furry culture. Whatever that's supposed to mean.

In fact, Kobolds are my favorite df race to play as. Because I like to simulate a tribe.

It was made by a person called Esh-Esh, who sells things like that on Etsy and would doubtless be glad to make you one. Her shop is here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/RawringPlushies
