Hi Mike,

>>Honestly I've never heard of anyone using "dogs" to mean feet either, but
hey nobody's perfect.

This is really off topic but I couldn't resist.  This usage of "dogs" to
mean feet occurs in old blues lyrics such as Blind Lemon Jefferson's "Hot
Dogs"

(Hard to make out what he's singing on the old 78, but he's says his "dogs"
is red hot, meaning he can run really fast.)
