The Little Dog

Category: PICNIC GAMES





The players form a ring, leaving one outside, who passes round it
singing, "I have a little dog and he won't bite you," and as he does
so, touching each player in turn with a knotted pocket-handkerchief.
"And he won't bite you," "And he won't bite you," he calls to one
after the other, and then suddenly changes this to "But he will bite
you." The player touched when this is said has to run after the
toucher with all his might. When caught they change places.
