1-32 Like the other versions, this dance uses slip step throughout and so is suitable for those younger children who haven't yet learnt any other step but can cope with 4 hands round and back in two pairs of couples.
9-12 1s take large steps.
13-16 1s take small steps to finish below 4s.
(Dance Notes by the deviser, Reuben Freemantle)
The Puggy was the nickname of the steamdriven, 0-4-0 locomotives used for shunting and shorthaul work in many industrial locations (notably distilleries and shipyards) in Scotland.
Bars 1-8 represent the driving wheels starting and reversing;
in bars 9-16, the puggy is moving around the goods yard;
bars 17-24 represent the driving wheels starting and reversing again;
in bars 25-32, the puggy takes three trucks around the goods yard and shunts them back into the siding.
