The Tongue Shots 101

Hello Friends!
Here are today's Bingo Numbers:

I don't know about you but I just love to throw in a tongue shot every now and then when Owner Girl is having one of her "photo shoots". Although many view the tongue shot as an accidental thing it is actually an art! Let me explain, there are many different types of tongue shots and I will show you just a few that Owner Girl has been lucky enough to capture.

Exhibit A:
The "On-The-Run" Tongue Shot

For use when you just don't have time to deliver a more advanced tongue shot.

Exhibit B:
The "The-Leash-Is-Over-There" Tongue Shot

Comes in handy when your Owner doesn't seem to notice that you would like to go outside.

Exhibit C:
The "Clean-Kitty-Cat" Tongue Shot

An excellent choice after a meal, also a great way to practice multitasking: grooming & giving a tongue shot.

Exhibit D:
The "Doggie-Raspberry" Tongue Shot

A sweet and innocent type of tongue shot. Works great for puppies.

Exhibit E:
The "Let-It-All-Hang-Out" Tongue Shot

Perfect for the times when you don't have a care in the world. You're happy and like the feeling of your tongue flapping in the wind.

Exhibit F:
The "Wrap-Around" Tongue Shot

For those times when you must perform a tongue shot and have some leftover food on the side of your face. Again with the multitasking!

Exhibit G:
The "Move-My-Tongue-So-I-Can-Bite-Your-Face" Tongue Shot

This is best when you must look ferocious! If you do it right you will even cause the "photographer" to produce an out of focus picture.

Exhibit H:
The "Cover-Your-Nose" Tongue Shot

A very useful tongue shot when there is something stinky in the air. (Pirate costume not required)

Exhibit I:
The "Licking-Me-Chops" Tongue Shot

When your mouth is watering as you think of your next meal or buried treasure you're about to find. (Pirate costume not required but is best for the full effect, arrrrgh!)

Exhibit J:
The "It's-So-Cold-My-Tonuge-Is-Stuck-To-My-Nose" Tongue Shot

For those cold Winter days when your toes are frozen and you don't want be out in the snow. If you have good control and can hold the position it may even get you an express ticket back into the nice warm house.

Exhibit K:
The "OH-MY-DOG!" Tongue Shot

Never underestimate the element of surprise! This tongue shot is all about exaggeration, big eyes and a long tongue.

Exhibit L:
The "Lazy-Days" Tongue Shot

A casual execution of the Tongue Shot. Best for those who don't want to put a lot of training and effort in.

Exhibit M:
The "Dignified" Tongue Shot

One of the most difficult Tongue Shots. To be able to strike an official looking pose and then deliver a tongue shot that doesn't even look out of place is pure talent.

I hope this has been an informative lesson for you all! I know there are many other types of tongue shots out there, do you have one? Post it on your bloggy and let me know!
