Canine Nutrition Study Update Howl: It is finished! Finally!! 😀Thank you to everybody who was kind enough to participate in this final battle to complete my canine psychology course. (It has been a major battle and far too time consuming lol) Your help was invaluable and greatly appreciated. 🙂 I have a very impressive array of Excel charts and tables full of interesting facts drawn from the information you all generously supplied. And as originally stated, no personal information was included at any point. This was just about facts.
I seem to have exceeded the 2,500 words that were suggested in the guidelines for this study…. more like 4,500 words!! 😜However, I am told there is no upper word limit so I presume that was the minimum figure…then again lol 17 pages may strike my tutor as rather excessive!! 😉 But there are lots of charts, tables and illustrations and a fair amount of “white space” due to chart and table space constraints so hopefully I will get away with this excess!
It seems likely that new printer cartridges and the purchase of more paper will be necessary before I can get this study printed out and then there will be a few weeks to wait before I hear back from the college. Hopefully I will get an A+ and pass this course with a distinction and a 50-gun salute!! On the other hand, this final part may be returned to me with a “flea in my ear” for afflicting them with such a marathon study, and strict instructions to redo it in a smaller format! 🤔That said I have taken a lot out of it already to reduce the size – there’s a lot to say about what makes up a balanced diet for a dog, what dogs need nutritionally…. what long/short term impact does a poor diet have on the dog…not to mention feeding methods, quality of foods…. etc. etc.
So! I will update you good pack members lol with the latest howl when I receive feedback and know what is what. I received top grades for the rest of the course so thanks to your assistance with this study and with a bit of luck this final grade will match the rest. In the meantime, I am now free to return to your blog pages! It has been a long time coming and I look forward to joining you all properly again. 😃 Have a great day/evening or night! Depending on location and time zone! 😎
