Bob cats

Many of us had smaller sleighs and ones we used to call dog-cats … these dog-cats, bob cats in Hodge’s Cove, had two runners and two boards across for seats and two sets of pins for holding onto. Sometimes the boys would tackle the dogs and have them pull the slides so they could get a better ride.
