Dichotomous Keys

Hello everyone! Just a quick note to let you know that my super delayed post containing over a month's worth of photos for the 365 photo challenge should be coming soon, Lord willing. Quizzes and homework have been piling up and a research essay was just added on, so yeah *sigh* What I dream "normal" life is probably won't be coming anytime soon :P

But, until I do get to those photos and posts and stuff, I thought I'd share with you some of my homework! :D This week in Biology class, we were told to make dichotomous keys on 10 living organisms. I chose to do dogs :) If you have a free moment, why don't you try it out? You probably already know what most of the dogs' names are...but it's still fun! :) Post your answers in the comments box! :D

Have a great weekend!!

Hi! Thanks for stopping by! :)
I LOVE comments, so please do leave one! I will try and reply as soon as possible :D If you comment under Anonymous, please leave a name (it can be made up or real, your choice ;)
Oh, and as you all probably know, my family and I are under pseudonyms (you didn’t really think I had a brother named Spiderman or Ironman, did ya? We’re weird, but not 'that' weird! :P) If you do know our real names, please don’t say it in the comment box. Public safety stuff ;) Thanks!

Finally, brothers (and sisters!), whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things
