Popular and traditional British game, doing the dog, (mostly played in the Wessex counties) whereby 2 players depart a pub and walk home in opposite directions. At regular intervals of 30 to 60 seconds player one will shout "Can you hear me now?" followed by an impression of a dog, wolf or other member of the canine family. Player 2 responds to his call with "YES, CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW!?" followed by his dog impression. The game continues until a) There is such a distance between players that they can no longer "hear me now", or b) one or both players are arrested.
