What's with species in Introduction to Objects I?

“beagle” and “golden retriever” are clearly breeds, not species. Species can’t interbreed.

I was just going to post this too. Using “species” to refer to breeds makes the author look ignorant of a basic biological concept, and in turn makes the website unprofessional. Highly suggest that the examples be updated.

Maybe this is a subtle introduction to the concept of having to program something that does what the customer wants even when the customer doesn’t know what they’re talking about :)

Probably something we should all get used to doing!
