Canines or dogs are “man’s best friend”. They can be domesticated or can be raised at home with man as their master. They are a close relative of the gray wolves which differ from its wild relatives, the Coyotes. The male dog is called a dog and the female is a bitch. A litter is a group of offspring and their father is called a sire while the mother is a dam. Generally, their offspring are called puppies or simply pups. I passed by them taking a nap at the beach of Kawit, Pilar, Camotes Island.
