  dogcow  /dog'kow/  n.  See  {Moof}.  The  dogcow  is  a 
  semi-legendary  creature  that  lurks  in  the  depths  of  the  Macintosh 
  Technical  Notes  Hypercard  stack  V3.1.  The  full  story  of  the  dogcow 
  is  told  in  technical  note  #31  (the  particular  dogcow  illustrated  is 
  properly  named  `Clarus').  Option-shift-click  will  cause  it  to  emit 
  a  characteristic  `Moof!'  or  `!fooM'  sound.  _Getting_  to  tech  note  31 
  is  the  hard  part  to  discover  how  to  do  that  one  must  needs  examine 
  the  stack  script  with  a  hackerly  eye.  Clue:  {rot13}  is  involved. 
  A  dogcow  also  appears  if  you  choose  `Page  Setup...'  with  a  LaserWriter 
  selected  and  click  on  the  `Options'  button.  It  also  lurks  in  other  Mac 
  printer  drivers,  notably  those  for  the  now-discontinued  Style  Writers. 
  See  `'.
