C298 Dogs

Issue Date: October 5, 2009

No Picture Available

Over the centuries, dogs have earned man's respect and affection as intelligent and loyal companions. And even though domesticated dogs are descendants of wild canines like wolves, foxes and jackals, they are known today as "man's best friend." Besides being enjoyed for the loving companionship they offer, dogs have been bred for various tasks, such as hunting, herding and guarding. At the same time, dogs continue to be similar in many ways to their wild canine ancestors, exhibiting such behavior as territoriality, burying food, barking or growling when a strange person or animal approaches, and yelping in fear or distress. In addition, canines naturally congregate in packs, foregoing a wild, independent existence for the comfort and safety of a human family and submitting to the pack leader, or human master.
