Hi again ! When I was a kid up at my cottage I would catch them in a pail but my dog would stick her nose in the pail and try to get them so I ended up dumping them back in the river. I also had a minnow net, I have no idea why.
I had a golliwog as a kid but have never heard of a pollywog. What is it?
Oh, well in that case yes, I played with a couple as a kid. We used to have lots of them in our pond.
isn't the word Wog particularly offensive and racist?
Yeah, if you're a thin-skinned *******.
The word was pollywog, not wog.
oooh defensive, aren't we?
We used to catch them and watch them develop into frogs, then take them and put them back in the pond where we got them.
