Mr. Joel played to two kinds of local pride. “This is where New York meets Long Island,” he said with a smile. “Queens — politically, that’s New York City. But geographically, we are on Long Island.” In a three-hour concert dotted with guest stars, Mr. Joel hinted that a long pop career — like his — can parallel the life of a city, full of pleasures and disappointments, triumphs and mistakes, changes and tenacity.

IN BRIEF: n. - Informal terms for dogs.

Tutor's tip: The rancher relied on his "doggy" (a small dog) to help round up the "dogie" (a stray calf).

or dog·gie ('gē, dŏg'ē) pronunciation
n., pl., -gies.
A dog, especially a small one.

adj., -gi·er, -gi·est.
Of or suggestive of a dog; doggish.

also do·gy (') pronunciation
n. Western U.S., pl., -gies.
A stray or motherless calf.

[Origin unknown.]
REGIONAL NOTE   In the language of the American West, a motherless calf is known as a dogie. In Western Words Ramon F. Adams gives one possible etymology for dogie, whose origin is unknown. During the 1880s, when a series of harsh winters left large numbers of orphaned calves, the little calves, weaned too early, were unable to digest coarse range grass, and their swollen bellies "very much resembled a batch of sourdough carried in a sack." Such a calf was referred to as dough-guts. The term, altered to dogie according to Adams, "has been used ever since throughout cattleland to refer to a pot-gutted orphan calf." Another possibility is that dogie is an alteration of Spanish dogal, "lariat." Still another is that it is simply a variant pronunciation of doggie.
