Loc: Hawaii, USA
I might have introduced some confusion into the thread. I was giving the Hawaiian word for cowboy. As it turns out, the word "paniolo" has an interesting history and derivation.
In 1838, at the request of Kamehameha III, Spanish-Mexican vaqueros came from California to teach Hawaiians how to manage the wild herds. The vaqueros became "paniolo," a word derived from "espanol" or "Spanish." The name was also given to the new Hawaiian cowboys.

You can find lots of images of dogtrots (or just about anything else) by going to http://www.google.com and searching for images rather than just searching the web. (Look for the tabs at the top that allow you select web, images, groups, directory or news.) Here are results of a google image search (or a gis in internet shorthand) http://images.google.com/images?q=dogtrot&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en
