Dogies and dogs from Rebeccah

Dear WS,

I just found out something interesting. When I was in Year 4 we learnt a cowboy song for a cowboy concert, and the chorus went, "Ride around, little dogies, ride around real slow" and I always thought it meant little dogs. But I just found out that "dogie" means a baby cow that doesn't have a mother. So like a human orphan. I suppose.

signing out,


Dear Rebeccah,

How very interesting! I don't know the song, but if I had ever heard it I would have thought the same as you. Poor little calves! Let's hope the other mother cows look after them ...
