ABSTRACT
The dog is a carnivorous mammal that was domesticated by humans thousands of years ago. It serves humans in a variety of ways�as a companion, hunter, herder, and protector, and as a draft animal. For the blind, dogs serve as guides. In some places, dog racing is a popular sport. Because of its loyalty, obedience, courage, and friendliness, the dog is often referred to as "man's best friend.�
