Thanks for reminding us of this:

(The Little Prince, notes):  The horn of an animal, same word as the spike on a boot (or a spike in general). When clarity is called for, say {Ha'DIbaH pu'} or {DI'raq loD pu'}.  The plural of {pu'} is either {pu'mey} or {pu'Du'}, depending on the specific meaning of {pu'}.

I think the answer is easier than you might expect. There is a word {pu'} "horn", and as the "boot horn" is {DaSpu'}, I believe there is a connection.
