******GK: Speaking of man's best friend (PIE man's
best friend too?)what's the story on basic "dog" words
and roots? Canis (chien of course), hund, dog etc.. In
Ukr. (and I presume other Slav tongues) we have "pes"
(any relation to or confusion with the catty p:s?) and
"sobaka" (the latter I have sometimes heard described
as cognate to Iranic forms?)******
