What does Coda mean?

Coda does this thing where his mouth is closed but is making a noise like he's smacking his lips. There doesn't seem to be pattern to when he does it. Anyone know why he's doing that?

Iggy used to do something like that, turns out he was sucking. Vet said he did it for comfort.

Well, maybe he is comforting himself. Coda is 5 yrs old. No harm no foul I guess.

Is he puffing his cheeks? If that is part of it, it is called chuffing and is a way of taking in scent. My dog was doing it in a nose games class and that is what I was told.

Aw thanks penny. I've seen him do that too. We'll have to keep a better eye on his cheeks
