This icon was designed to be a spotted dog character in the Cairo "hieroglyphic" font that shipped with the original Macintosh. Perhaps because the spots looked a little bovine, some people referred to the image as a dogcow, and imagined that the sound it made would be "Moof". It has been noted that the characters in Cairo are early emoji, a way to combine text and small, expressive pictures. — SK
