Dogs, as a slang word for feet, is in question. One member asked that the question be referenced. I can only do so through personal experience.

For example: "Whew, my dogs are barking!" I was around when pointed toe shoes made their appearance in the 50s and perhaps it was those foot killers that inspired women to use that expression.

The famous American author, Damon Runyon, wrote about New York's Broadway and underworld characters in his many stories about life in the 30s, 40s, and 50s. His characters had interesting nicknames or monikers, like Benny the Dip, and Harry the Horse. My guess is that it is a slang combination of the word " monogram " and " marker " or gambler's IOU. Perhaps, the word was coined by Runyon himself.

-- Stag vs. Drag. It's what you say about going to an event or a party. I'm going "stag" (alone). or, I'm going "drag" (with a date). -- In the late 50s and early 60s in my high school, over the PA, they would announce a dance on Friday night and say: "Admission is 50 cents Stag, and 75 cents, Drag." Yes -- dances were cheap in the 50s... but so was everything else. -- I am guessing that "stag" comes from the reference to a stag party -- men alone. And Drag is when you drag someone along with you... a date. But this last part is just a guess.
