The trace-horses move restlessly, snort, and daintily paw the ground; a couple of white geese, only just awake, waddle slowly and silently across the road.
Пристяжные ежатся, фыркают и щеголевато переступают ногами; пара только что проснувшихся белых гусей молча и медленно перебирается через дорогу.

For ordinary music he would waddle as close to the gramophone as possible and sit there with pouting chest, eyes half close, purring softly to himself.
Если ставили другую музыку, он подбирался поближе к патефону и сидел там с полузакрытыми глазами, выпятив грудь и мурлыча что‑то себе под нос.

I`LL see to them!` cried the gardener truculently, and with a hurried waddle disappeared among the evergreens.

With the bag slung over her arm, and rattling as she waddled away, she waddled to the door, where she stopped to inquire if she should leave us a lock of her hair.
Все еще болтая, она пошла вразвалку к двери, а мешок висел у нее на руке. Вдруг она остановилась и спросила, хотим ли мы, чтобы она оставила нам прядь своих волос.

He waddled along panting, his new straw hat cut his forehead, and his feet twinged in his boots, but he was content; Shubin and Bersenyev brought up the rear.
Он пыхтел и переваливался, новая соломенная шляпа резала ему лоб, и ноги горели в сапогах, но и ему было хорошо Шубин и Берсенев замыкали шествие.
