werewolves and weredogs

Someone asked me recently if I was a weredog, and it made me think that maybe not everyone knows what a weredog is.  A weredog is different from a werewolf.  The were in werewolf means man.  There are many types of were creatures.  Werewolf is only one of them.  A weredog is a creature similar to a werewolf – it is a shapeshifter. Instead of a man turning into a wolf, it’s a man turning into a dog. A weredog.  Weredogs are not nearly as well-known as werewolves.  The term for werewolves is lycanthropy, while the name for weredogs is cynanthropy.

    On the filipino movie the weredogs is acually featured there and acts like a ordinary family that runs a business of funeral parlor but at night they turn into wolves and ate the guts and insides of the corpse.
    It was suspense and most interesting of all is that movie is always aired on christmas.
