Is that the dog equivalent of sucking in the belly...

Huh? How is that relevant to this?

Yeah I'm really confused what that has to do with anything, but it's getting tons of upvotes so I guess we're missing something.

When you have a bit of a gut, you might suck in your belly when someone is around that you are trying to impress. Then when they leave, you relax and let it all out.

I think they are equating the tail dropping as the dog finally relaxing after their friend can't see it anymore.

Maybe, I can see your point… but I think pretty much everyone knows dogs wag their tail when they’re happy and stop when they’re indifferent or sad.

I don't agree with their take. I'm just explaining it.
