It is odd to look at a poodle and think of the wolf since all breeds of dos are directly descended from the wolf. Much can be said regarding the Chihuahua or the dachshund or Saint Bernard in regards to size and girth. What of the fox who shares the canine identity and is as wild as the wolf? It is so that "canine" and "dog", though synonymous, differ in interpretation. The dog world seen as a place of Fidos, Spots, and Rovers while the canine world holds more packs that won't always greet you with licks and wagging tails.
