 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 02:50 PM

woohoo! i love written sound effects! (thinking of batman tv show, garfield, and calvin and hobbes)

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 02:51 PM

What I love is the look of complete and utter adoration in Monkey's eyes.

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 02:54 PM

I'm trying to figure out the layout of the person (guy, I assume) on the bed with Monkey. Is he .. facedown with feet away from camera? (then how are toes up) or face up (in which case those pockets don't make sense).. etc.

Sorry. That would be 'Rick' presumably.

mary the first- cargo pants, mayhaps

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 03:11 PM


It is so beeee-u-tee-ful! It makes my heart hurt.

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 03:24 PM

lol, thanks theo. i forgot that word (even if it is one of my favorites to say!). i think i need to get back in school...
mary~ i'd agree with asdf and say cargo pants.

anotha thought: thwap also describes the helo-tail or helo-ears (helicopter)

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 03:24 PM

My dog is a thwapper. I love my dog. :)

omg I love thwappers! Two of my dogs didn't have tails, but my third did and he never thwapped. One summer we had my cousin's dog stay with us while he traveled, and he was a thwapper. I became convinced he would actually place himself near something he could thwap on if he wanted to express himself. After that visit, my dog started thwapping. Adorable!

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 03:36 PM

Seems like a perfectly thwappy dog to me.

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 03:38 PM

This is so cute it makes my chest hurt! The adoration on that pupper's face is beyond words. This is the true definition of "unconditional love!"

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 03:52 PM

(...in a edumacated professorial type voice) You will note Tail Thwappinks is especially effective in the Giant Breed Dogs with notable examples being English Mastiffs and Great Danes. However take care not to be in the line of fire of the the thwapper as the as thwappee soon find thwaps can be exceedingly painful when delivered by a happy Labrador Retriever let alone an ectstatic Great Dane!

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 04:14 PM

He's all: "they're lookin' at me. They're lookin' at ME. I'm getting atten-shuns, omg. Holy crap, they're takin' a pitcha!! I'm so happy!"

[thwap, thwap, thwap]

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 04:25 PM

Look at Monkey's widdle face!!!


Me likey "thwappin'"

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 04:27 PM

I dunno about the new glossary term...sounds to close to "fwap" and the activity associated with "fwap fwap" sounds will never be CO-worthy

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 04:27 PM

Oh my GOD, kz! [fans self]

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 04:30 PM

that'd be "FAPFAPFAP", kz... it is not to be confused with "THWAP THWAP THWAP"...

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 04:46 PM

Oh my GOD, Theo!! [falls right over]

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 04:48 PM

Hmm. We seem to have found Cerise's version of Kryptonite.
Ever see Christian Slater in "Pump Up the Volume"?

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 04:52 PM

ha! Yes! Thwapping is often associated with said 'Thwapper' doing something they shouldn't be doing.. like.. laying on the bed. sitting on the couch.. begging for food.. etc etc..

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 04:59 PM

Let me clarify something here. In MAH house, Thwappers can sit anywhere they damn well please.. On the bed.. on the couch.. As a matter of fact.. if my bed was 'Thwapper' free.. I'd be disappointed.

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 05:00 PM

Ohhh nooo.. I just read the other comments about err... fwapping.. and then I say I'd be disappointed if I didn't have a 'thwapper' in my bed.

*groan* I'm sorry peeps..

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 05:04 PM

Just don't get the two mixed up, is all.
Actually, come to think of it, that's your own business.

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 05:06 PM

Oh my GOD, Golden!! On the couch, on the bed, with food...

[dies of shock]

Heh, Theo, back when I saw that movie I was such a behbeh I didn't even know what the heck he was...simulating. I'm crying with laughter up in here.

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 05:06 PM

That is the happiest monkey on the planet and will be everyday of his life...
Thwappers unite!!!!!!!

My cat thwapps me with her tail everynight right before I fall asleep then she runs around and plays unitl three am...

leah b.
 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 05:12 PM

Happy tails to you, until we eat again.
Happy tails to you, keep petting me till then.
Who cares about the clouds when we're together?
Just sing a song and bring the sunny weather.
Happy tails to you, 'till we eat again.

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 05:23 PM

I would so love to be the thwappee!

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 05:24 PM

"I'll be thwapping you
"In all the old familiar places..."

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 05:26 PM

this *almost* falls into Critters `n Crotches ^^

what i see is a guy wearing cargo shorts (those longish ones) sitting on his bed and to his right is his sweet pup, Monkey; the photo shows his right leg with the big foofy cargo pocket on the outer right side of his thigh and i tink his legs are crossed too so you see his left foot

...and if u go to monkeythedog.com, you get a glimpse of monkey's poppa (10th photo down "03sep07") and he like totally has BOY BAND hair!!!

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 05:29 PM

i tink i haffa lil crush on monkey ^^

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 05:30 PM

Thwap the Monkey!!!
But seriously, what a sweet face :)

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 06:27 PM

Oh my GOD, Bugmom!!

OK. Enough, Cerise.

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 06:39 PM

in my house, a "thwap" becomes a "thwop" depending on the level of enthusiasm and the "thwap substrate."

to wit:
dog standing in doorway, waiting for dinner: "thwap thwap thwap" on the wooden door frame.

dog laying in bed, giving apologietic princess eyes and knowing she's in trouble for eating a shoe: thwop thwop thwop

it's subtle, but it's there.

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 06:39 PM

...apologetic princess DI eyes...

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 06:41 PM

Ooh, i want a thwap thwap. Yay puppy thwap!!

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 06:55 PM

English Mastiffs? Great Danes? Typical--bunch of white European guys trying to appropriate thwap culture.

Wow, Peter Gabriel is getting a LOT of attention on this blog today.

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 07:54 PM

What can we say? The man made music, and we liked a bunch of it.

 |  Sep 13, 2007 at 08:04 PM
