I have a quick question. When reading a section of the dog and you come across a picture with a caption, do you just skip the picture and caption? :?

Thanks,
Tim Watkins
If the caption flows like text and adds interest to the content, I sometimes add it. LV doesn't want you adding your own descriptive commentary like "here the author includes a pencil sketch of a pointer signifying he has treed a coon" if the caption doesn't say that. Or, if there descriptive text in the article that says what is pictured farther down the article, you might say (pencil sketch included) where the text appears. Please use your own judgment. Experiment. It can always be deleted in the editing process.

Do you have any instructions on how the pedigree charts should be read? I have thought about doing some additional sections but got intimidated by those charts.

Sure. I read mine as follows:
"Scale of points. Symmetry, condition and size, Value 20, Head 15, Stop 5, Muzzle 10, and so forth down the line to TOTAL: 100

Hello,

Thank you!
Have a great day

Section 43 has been uploaded: https://librivox.org/uploads/knotyouraveragejo/americanbookofthedog_43_various_128kb.mp3 (15:59). This is my first time editing with a different software than Audacity (I used Adobe Audition) so I hope it sounds and plays okay. Let me know if there are any issues. Thanks!

43 is PL OK. Thanks, Jill. Sounds and plays fine. Very clear. Lots of pug breeders in the old days, eh!

I'm glad to hear that! I guess I'll keep doing what I'm doing, then. Audition makes it much easier to remove all the clicks from my very noisy mouth. On to editing Irish Setters and recording Gordon Setters. Thanks!
