Thank you John, and very well said.... This is exactly it. It was not at all the fact that you corrected me---I came to this site to learn, and I am happy to admit that I was wrong. If I made a mistake I am normally the first person to admit it. But the tone that you replied it was much less than simply informative. The members here are completely aware that I am no canine nutritionist. And I clearly stated that. And again I will point out that I clearly stated that this was meant to be a BASIC guideline, not a full-length dog nutrition book. You corrected me. Fine. I learned something. Thank you. But then you proceded to insult my knowledge of canines, whether unintentionally or intentionally. Your tone implied that you were...let's say tearing me down as if to...hmm...take an alpha position? Not at all saying that you were, just trying to help you understand the tone that you took, or at least the way that we all took it. Again, I feel that I have been polite with you thoroughout this post, and all I am asking for is the same thing in return. Have a good day.
