Perhaps you could use the

   $CategoryGroup = 'Main';

solution, as mentioned by Michale Continues, but then your "special"
links could be [[!_Dogs]] while normal links to Main/Dogs would be
either [[!Dogs]] or [[Main.Dogs]] or otherwise (note that there is no
underscore before Dogs in the "non-special" links.

Then your pagelist would either specify both the link and _Dogs as a
search term or just _Dogs as the search term (probably one or the
other would provide a slight performance improvement.)

(:pagelist _Dogs:)

Of course then you have to figure out some way of getting people to
actually enter the underscore consistently on these special tags, but
I'll treat that as a separate problem...
