Basic Game Play:
Begin by placing all the dogs in a row., grab a leash and get ready to Walk the Dogs! Each player collects dogs
from the front or back of a long line by drawing and playing cards. But,
beware of the dog catcher who may steal some of your favorite dogs. To
win, collect five of the same breed
in a row, or have the most dog points in your own line. Woof!
