Examples from texts

As I spoke, I observed a large dog lying on the sunny grass beneath raise its ears as if about to bark, and then smoothing them back, announce, by a wag of the tail, that someone approached whom it did not consider a stranger.
Еще не досказав, я увидела, как внизу большая собака, лежавшая на солнышке в траве, наставила уши, точно собираясь залаять, потом опустила их и завиляла хвостом, возвещая приближение кого-то, кто не был для нее чужим.

As soon as the claws dug into his tail Geronimo dropped it, but the furious wiggle he gave to accomplish this made his head wag rapidly from side to side, and the result was that he tore Cicely’s forearm off in his mouth.
Как только ее коготки впились в хвост, Джеронимо сбросил его. При этом он с такой силой дернулся, что голова у него резко замоталась из стороны в сторону и во рту осталась вырванная нога Сисели.

"Very young brother," said the Austrian, with a little anxious smile, which reminded him of the wag of a dog's tail.

As for Dwayne Hoover’s dog Sparky, who couldn’t wag his tail: Sparky is modeled after a dog my brother owns who has to fight all the time, because he can’t wag his tail.

If he saw a child near a mirror, he might wag his finger at a child warningly, and say with great solemnity, “Don’t get too near that leak. You wouldn’t want to wind up in the other universe, would you?”
