Reporting a possible exercise typo?

When you push the report button for an answer to a problem what exactly happens? My app doesn't redirect me or anything but just won't let me push report again.

Anyways I was translating a sentence in the Conjunctions lesson but the sentence had a typo in the answers available.

Sentence: Я работань как лошадь. Translation: I work like a horse. Possible answers had 'dog' instead of 'horse' so I chose that and it said correct.

It should have said Я работань как собако for my answer correct? Or am I misinterpreting a Russian saying?

This isn't related, but if you put ! [ ] ( ), and put the link between ( ), without the spaces, it will show the image on your post, instead of having to click the link.

I was using the app instead of website so I don't know how that works. Edit: read that wrong, but okay that's great to know for future posts!

"I work like a dog" is the most common way to say this in (US) English, so I assume they are trying to match up the equivalent idioms.

I figured that. I still think it should have allowed us the option to put horse though for the literal/correct translation.
