The world of pet slang
Everyone knows what it means when people say “wag” or “bark” or “roll over” but now that the trend of having Instagram accounts for your pet and Facebook fan pages for different breeds is gaining popularity, a few slang words have been added to the pet owner vocabulary that you might not be familiar with.
A sploot is an adorable looking stretch that dogs can do. It’s typically associated with corgis, but most types of cats and dogs can also do it. A sploot is when a pet lays on their stomach and stretches their back legs out behind them. A half-sploot or side-sploot is when they only extend one leg behind them.
Dogs no longer bark, they bork. If you listen closely to a talkative dog, it actually sounds like they’re saying “bork.”
