He's got perfect puppy dog eyyyyyes

Buddy, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel ehibits picture-perfect puppy-dog eyes and puffy schnozzle. I have to ask you guys, though—there should be a name for the puffy area around the nose—you know, the place where whiskers eminate?! it's so prosh—what is that area called? Is it cheek puff?


Take him for a walk, Joy M.! :)

i think it just the "muzzle" area.

MUZZLE! Good call. Then that makes his a 'Puzzle'? [you saw that coming a mile away.]

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 06:44 PM

Yeah, I was gonna say "muzzle."

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 06:45 PM

OMG its so cute. too bad this picture appeared after the t-shirt poll. maybe next time, this will be one of the choices

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 06:45 PM

Cheek puff is better than muzzle. Cheek puff FTW!

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 06:46 PM

So cute i wanna cry!

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 06:48 PM

I agree "cheek puff" is cuter. But I don't think of that as his cheek. "Schnozz puff," maybe.

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 06:53 PM

"Schnozzle Puff" is like a great name for a Mattel toy or something. I can almost hear the theme song now...

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 06:54 PM

Is that a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel or a King Charles Spaniel? BTW there is no "cocker" in this dog's name!

We have a short-nosed dog, and we call his little nose a fuzzle - short for fuzzy muzzle.

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 06:56 PM

Finally!!!!!!A new post, thanks Meg, what was the hold up?

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 06:57 PM

I hesitate to suggest.

But considering that it tends to be the place where whiskers originate. And it is, as you said, a Puff area.

May I suggest Whuff?

(and when I say it to myself there is a great deal of exhaled air and a almost silent h sound before the W. The quiet sound a dog makes when they puff out their cheeks in a subsonic, personal bark.)

[robotic voice] Whisker Emination Area!

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 07:01 PM

I've always called that part of the dog his doolaps, but that's a word for a different part of the face, I think...

*looks it up*

Okay, it's spelled dewlap and it's the loose flap of skin on the neck of some animals. Oh well. I still like to call that part of a dog's muzzle the dewlaps. :)

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 07:05 PM

Thanks, Erin, you were right, I miss-typed. He's indeed a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Thanks!

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 07:05 PM

Oh what a little beauty! Puppies! Puppies! They always makes me happies!

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 07:09 PM

Muzzle, nevah.
Cheek puff sounds way cuter :)
So "Whuff" and "Cheek puff" to you all.

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 07:11 PM

Oh, the puppyness.

How about Wozzle?

A thinker
 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 07:14 PM

When I was little my brothers and I used to call it the "puff-part" :)

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 07:27 PM

after the crapy weekend i had, this made me feel so much better!

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 07:37 PM

Well; He Wants Y'All To Take A Break From The Puffles & Muffles Put Them Up Your Wuzzles And Take Him For A Walk.

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 07:38 PM

That is just too precious.

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 07:43 PM

Okay, who was the wiseguy that's been putting stuffed animals to life?

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 07:43 PM

Please, please let me wuzz this doggie!

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 07:46 PM

I LOVE THIS PICTURE! He is sooo adorable.

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 07:52 PM



Owner:"No, don't look at me like that!"


Owner"No, oh alright, you can have just a bit of my ice cream, just this once!"

Puppy wags tail!

(Yes I know ice cream is bad for puppies and dogs in general, but that will not stop them from begging, I know it didn't stop my dog!)


 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 07:53 PM

I have heard, and prefer, the term "whisker humps", but that's just me.

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 07:58 PM

I think that you have made us know and appreciate "cheek puff." It simply must be cheek puff. Whether or not it is technically "cheek" matters not. We know what it is and it is precious.

wee pups
 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 08:25 PM

"Nush" (rhymes with push). Contains hints of nose, plush, nozzle, prosh... Could be a verb, too, as in when a dog puts his nose under your hand and "nushes" it up onto his or her head. And that plush nush brushing your hand ensures that you will comply...

We call 'em "nose pillows" but "cheek puffs" is cuter. :)

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 08:38 PM

OK, so far we have the following contenders to name the puffy whisker area:

1. Nush
2. Cheek Puffs
3. Schnozzle
4. Nozzle
5. Whuff
6. Muzzle
7. Whisker Humps
8. Puffles & Muffles
9. Puff-Part
10. Dewlaps
11. Schnozz Puff
12. W.E.A. (Whisker Emination Area!)

A nice collection. Shall we have a poll on it?

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 08:40 PM

Now wait just a sec - most all animals have whiskers.

Is this term gonna be appicable to *all* animals, or dogs only?

Such burning questions we debate here! ;)

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 08:46 PM

in this house we always call those whisker-pads, well, whisker-pads. :-D

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 08:48 PM

The whisker-madness is distracting people from the singular feet on this pup; nose, too. His feet are incredible.

I hope I get to walk him in my dreams...

Is it possible for a King Charles spaniel to have a Roundhead?

Oh, and I've heard them referred to as whisker-bags.

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 09:33 PM

This little guy's muzzle is so amazingly snarfable, I can only come up with "muzzy." As in, yes, "fuzzy wuzzy muzzy." Okay, must die now.

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 10:00 PM

Ive always just called them 'chipmunk cheeks'

Lick My Pickles
 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 10:06 PM

I just want to kneel down and pet his lil' head. AW

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 10:28 PM

Well, when my kitties back home got happy and started purring their cheeks would get all puffed up and their whiskars all pronounced. So we called them Poofs :)

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 10:52 PM

Just had to put this video from google videos - a must see for any puppy loving individual out there :)

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 11:18 PM

Gotta love a puppy's whatever the heck they're called

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 11:20 PM

Well once upon a time I had a boyfriend who was an airplane mechanic (I do believe he is now a pilot) who had an English field cocker spaniel. He (the boyfriend, not the dog) called those muzzly bits "canards", after the little wings on some airplanes located on the nose of the plane that are in turn named after ducks. He would play with them and make airplane noises, and the dog didn't mind. So I vote for "canards", 'cause it's extra silly.

Wow, that was long-winded and kinda pointless. Then again it's 2:43 in the morning here and I really outta go to bed.

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 11:44 PM

Uh, make that "really *oughtta* go to bed". And that was with extensive use of the preview button. Oy.

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 11:46 PM

I call those "cheeky cheeks".

Kate Orman
 |  Apr 24, 2006 at 12:10 AM

I'm in love. They are such sweet dogs too - gorgeous dispositions.

 |  Apr 24, 2006 at 01:02 AM

I feel sorry for the little guy. You can see the trail his tears took from the corner of his eyes. *Hugs* to the small and fuzzy one.

 |  Apr 24, 2006 at 01:08 AM

never mind the cheeky cheeks, what about the feety feet?


 |  Apr 24, 2006 at 01:23 AM

Why foozle,
I don't know.
Look at all that floppy foozle!

 |  Apr 24, 2006 at 01:25 AM

I'm liking fuzzle, whisker-humps, and puffles. But I think you better put this very important process to a vote.
