‘He didn’t mention the end of the world once,’ Claire said. I remember how beautiful she looked that evening in her dark blue dress (the closest she had to black) and her grown-up hose. I also remember she ate almost no supper, just pushed things around on her plate until it was all mixed together and looked like dog whoop.

Context: Evening time. The narrator's older sister Claire had accompanied her parents to the funeral of their Methodist minister's wife and toddler who were killed in a car accident. Pastor Givens from Shiloh Church officiated at the cemetery graveside service.

What does whoop mean?

Thank you.
