So this lesson was hard for me. Half the things in this lesson I didn't agree with, so it was hard for me to not only pay attention but to keep reading. For the first time throughout reading these lesson's I had a hard time staying focused.

This lesson was on Commercial Dog Food. It talked about the nutritional aspects and what to look for in dog food. 

The professor also stated that cats are carnivores and dogs are omnivores.  I really disagree with that comments, so on the discussion board I made a post. From the anatomy a dog is a carnivore in all aspects (teeth, saliva, intestines, digestion, etc.). Dogs still cant digest carbs, starches, etc. They will eat it to survive though. Most animals are opportunists. 

Here is an awesome read I linked in my post:

One class mate girl commented after reading my posts and at the beginning she totally thought they were omnivores. But after reading my comments then the article I linked, she believes they are carnivores. 

I am sure my professor dislikes me for basically saying I think he is wrong, but everyone is entitled their opinion.  I just believe mine is the right one lol
