Goggie

noun; analogy
Dog. Creative misspelling of ‘doggie’ meant to suggest the writer was only semi-literate. The term is used primarily online as a canine counterterm to lolcats. The term is meant to suggest how dogs themselves would pronounce doggie since they would not possess the tongue dexterity humans have to make sounds. The term is therefore analogous with the baby talk version of doggie to help simulate this animal pronunciation through assimilation of the alveolar stop to the velar g stop.
 
“the goggie breed ob the week!”
Etymology : Goggie is an analogy that altered doggie which is an alternative spelling of doggy, a diminutive form of dog.
