Word of the Day for Saturday, January 31, 2009

canine \KEY-nahyn\, adjective:

1. of or like a dog or member of the dog family
2. any animal belonging to a group of meat-eaters including dogs, foxes, and wolves
3. pertaining to a canine tooth
4. one of the four teeth next to the incisors; cuspid

Several police departments with canine squads similar in size to the Prince George's unit reported few -- if any -- cases of dogs biting officers.
-- David S. Fallis and Craig Whitlock, The Washington Post, 2001-12-30
First came Netflix and Zipcar. Now comes a company that plans to rent dogs to Bostonians willing to pay steep fees for a canine friend without worry of commitment.
-- Sarah Schweitzer, Boston Globe, 2007-12-17

by 1398 as "pointed teeth," from Latin caninus "of the dog," from canis "dog," from Proto Indo-European base *kwon- "dog." The adjective is attested from 1613 and the noun meaning "dog" is first recorded 1869.
