It’s Just Another Flap-Flip Friday

Hello frendz…

So, since it’s too dang cold out to go for long walks, I’ve been amusing myself with activities that I can do inside. You know, reading books, watching the tube, knitting….ok who am I kidding, I’ve been NAPPING most of the time. Or staring at my dad until carrots are deposited into my mouth.

I figured some of you guys might also be experiencing the winter doldrums so I thought I’d learn ya something today: How to do the infamous “Flap Flip“.

Depending on your region, you may also know it as the “Meh? Muzzle”, the “Shaggy Sneer”, or the “Bemused Gregory”. Yeah, that last name never really caught on.

Step 1: Avoid water for about 1 hour. We want to get our mouth nice and dry for maximum muzzle-flap stickage.

Step 2: Let out a GIGANTIC yawn. You may optionally make a high-pitched squeeking noise while yawning that I like to do approx. 3 inches from the face of a sleeping human at breakfast time.

Step 3: Let your arid mouth and lack of snout work to your advantage as you slowly close your jaws. Often a lower anterior snaggle tooth can aid in the process.

Step 4: Gaze in the mirror at your amazing “Flap Flip”.

This face is best used when prompted with inane questions like “Are you a good boy?”, or “Wasn’t that a FUN walk we just went on?”. Good luck!

Have a FLAP-tastic weekend, doodz and doodettes.

    Sid, I love your description of the Flip Flap and it is totally easy to follow. However, when I try it all I get is a POUTY FACE! I know they are similar but WHAT and I doing wrong.
    Love Noodles
    PeeEss: It is about 50 degrees WARMER here and sometimes sunny which I know is better than ChiTown BUT I am still sooooo cold!

    What an expert instruction, Sid! Donald does the flap-flip a lot, but he always fixes his lip before I can get the camera.
