1 He paced up and down without a word, his tail rigid and twitching.
2 The dog shrieked for mercy and the other two fled with their tails between their legs.
3 One of them all but closed his jaws on Snowball's tail, but Snowball whisked it free just in time.
4 Even Napoleon, who was directing operations from the rear, had the tip of his tail chipped by a pellet.
5 His tail had grown rigid and twitched sharply from side to side, a sign in him of intense mental activity.
6 It was noticed that they wagged their tails to him in the same way as the other dogs had been used to do to Mr. Jones.
7 He fidgeted to and fro, swishing his long black tail against his sides and occasionally uttering a little whinny of surprise.
8 Snowball also threw on to the fire the ribbons with which the horses' manes and tails had usually been decorated on market days.
9 One day, as Mollie strolled blithely into the yard, flirting her long tail and chewing at a stalk of hay, Clover took her aside.
10 Only Clover remained, and Benjamin who lay down at Boxer's side, and, without speaking, kept the flies off him with his long tail.
11 As they approached the farm Squealer, who had unaccountably been absent during the fighting, came skipping towards them, whisking his tail and beaming with satisfaction.
12 He was a brilliant talker, and when he was arguing some difficult point he had a way of skipping from side to side and whisking his tail which was somehow very persuasive.
13 It was nearly nine o'clock when Squealer made his appearance, walking slowly and dejectedly, his eyes dull, his tail hanging limply behind him, and with every appearance of being seriously ill.
14 He seldom talked, and when he did, it was usually to make some cynical remark--for instance, he would say that God had given him a tail to keep the flies off, but that he would sooner have had no tail and no flies.
15 About this time, too, it was laid down as a rule that when a pig and any other animal met on the path, the other animal must stand aside: and also that all pigs, of whatever degree, were to have the privilege of wearing green ribbons on their tails on Sundays.
