: what do you mean by "get a long little doggy"?? or "get along little doggy"? and could you tell me the origin! thanx!

I think it should be 'dogy' or 'dogie' (what in the UK would be called a heifer). It comes from cattle ranching, presumably, and I assume is just a phrase used to move the dogies along; something like 'shoo' or whatever.
