    When my kids are fighting I say, “Get along little doggies” and I have no idea where it comes from (going to Google now…).

    Apparently it comes from an old song I’ve never heard in my life haha

    Git Along, Little Dogies" is a traditional cowboy ballad, also performed under the title "Whoopie Ti Yi Yo." It is believed to be a variation of a traditional Irish ballad about an old man rocking a cradle.[1] The cowboy adaptation is first mentioned in the 1893 journal of Owen Wister, author of The Virginian.[1] Through Wister's influence, the melody and lyrics were first published in 1910 in John Lomax's Cowboy Songs and Other Frontier Ballads.[1][2] It is cataloged as Roud Folk Song Index No. 827. Members of the Western Writers of Americachose it as one of the Top 100 Western songs of all time.[3] (Thank you Wikipedia.)
