How to blow the tail on the Balloon Dog

This is one of the great little piece of byplay with the children. When you make a dog, they will expect a small bubble on the end of the balloon as a 'poodle' tail. The old way to do this was to put the balloon in your mouth and suck until the bubble appeared. The disadvantage to this is that they push the tail down, then they will stick the balloon in their mouth and make the tail. At this point they will catch any diseases that you have. A better way is to do it as shown in the video above. By timing it properly they will blow on the end of the balloon and the tail will pop up at the same time. At this point I usually tie a knot in the tail and hand it to them. Lots of fun.
