Why do people say dog gone it when something is puzzling or regretful they did but not cat gone it?

I noticed this just a few hours ago. Said why the dog and not the cat.

  • Its a southern saying.

    Dog gon' it has a better ring than
    Cat gon' it.

    Its not always regretful or puzzling.
    Some people use it as a sign of awe.

    like : Dog gon'! Ain't believe that happened !

    Mainly why we don't use cat gon' is probably because ALMOST every man is a dog person.

    This term is popular in the south.
    For them people do not enjoy cursin'

  • Back when taking the Lord's name in vain was a punishable offense, people used substitute words and phrases. Dog gone it is really good damn it.
