  • 7th grade language arts Ms. Sue please -

    Right! :-)

  • 7th grade language arts Ms. Sue please -

    oh no! Actually it was "a webpage on the evolution of dogs written by a college professor"

  • 7th grade language arts Ms. Sue please -

    Oops! I'm sorry -- but neither of us read that answer carefully. I stopped after webpage. Of course the professor's webpage is the one you'd use.

  • 7th grade language arts Ms. Sue please -

    I suppose not. Thank you!

  • 7th grade language arts Ms. Sue please -

    I didn't pick that one because I didn't think that evolution would be related to dog behavior.

  • 7th grade language arts Ms. Sue please -

    Ohh. Dogs are descended from wolves. It helps to understand dogs by looking at wolves. They are pack animals and need to be around others. People have been substituted for the wolf pack. We also talk about alpha dogs -- the leaders of the packs.
