Conrad Schmidt, standing beside the miner's little daughter dollie, watched the warlike procession with the curious eyes of youth.
I thought my dollie was old enough to have a 'lowance, and I want to give it to her.
I saw dollie gathering the chickens into her apron and carrying Mrs. Cochin by the wing.
dollie was one of the dozen or so girls he was always talking about in his sleep.
dollie perhaps was tiring of her mad run, for she heeded the frantic appeal.
"That dollie Ramsdell was an awfully nice girl," said the tall man.
You know you promised to make my dollie a severless jacket to-day, said Maybee, one morning.
dollie in truth was making a wonderful run for a horse that had no competition.
Mr. Meredith had stamped out of the room angrily, and Dick Herbert was alone when dollie, in regal indignation, swept in.
"I will play you are mine, my very own dollie, for just this one night," she whispered in Miranda's ear.
c.1600, Dolly, a fem. nickname (see doll); 1790 as "child's doll;" applied from 1792 to any contrivance fancied to resemble a dolly in some sense, especially "a small platform on rollers" (1901). Doesn't look like one to me, either, but that's what they say.
The first mammal successfully cloned — Dolly, a sheep — was born in 1996 in Scotland as the result of work by biologist Ian Wilmut (see clone). The procedure that produced Dolly involved removing the nucleus from an egg cell and placing the nucleus of an adult sheep's mammary cell into it. Further manipulations caused the egg to “turn on” all genes and develop like a normal zygote. (See totipotency.)
