Default How to tan a squirrel hide?

I just found a dead squirrel on the road, perfectly intact except for one eye being completely dislocated, (EWWW!) and would like to try skinning it and preserving the hide.
It doesn't smell at all, nor did it have flies/ants/other bugs on it, so I'm thinking it's very fresh. I found a few sites that say how to skin it, and it looks easy, but I can't find how to tan it and have a nice soft pliable skin with the fur still on. If possible, I'd like to have the head, tail, and paws intact.
Does anyone know a good way to tan a perfectly intact squirrel hide?

My adventures in keeping Indostomus crocodilus, the crocodile toothpick fish. AKA armored stickleback, paradox fish, and freshwater pipefish. Care is (to the best of my knowledge) exactly the same as Indostomus paradoxus.
