We had to suffer through this song repeatedly in my third grade music 
class, and it surfaces in my memory occasionally like PTSD. /Dogies/ 
does not sound like /doggies;/ the first syllable /do/ rhymes with the 
word /so/ (and the Klingon syllable *Do*).

/Whoopee ti yi yo, git along little dogies!
It's your misfortune and none of my own.
Whoopie ti yi yo, git along little dogies!
You know that Wyoming will be your new home./

Since this is the only context in which anyone remembers the word 
/dogies/ nowadays, I have no doubt that Okrand was thinking about this 
song when he invented the word.
