"Mi perro es gordo porque come mucho."
Translation:My dog is fat because it eats a lot.
My dog is definitely a she. Thinking of animals as 'it' leads to animal welfare problems
I am getting discouraged with Duolingo. They used to send me an email at east once a week saying that my translation was also correct and they are NOW accepting my translation as well. Since the last two months, they have stopped this for some reason. I keep having correct answers that they mark as wrong . My translation was BETTER than there's this time. I said " My dog is fat because he eats a lot.". (Only the word "He" is different than their word 'It", as listed above. ) Their translation was not what is listed above. On the test its answer said, " My dog is fat because it eats tons. I liked my answer better...evidently they did also since it is different here. GRRRRRRRR. I know Duolingo is a free app, but if it is going to error time after time, it's not worth the time.
the whole month I only have got one correction, it is going slow. and do you ever get denial?, or are they just ignored silently?
For what it's worth, "My dog is fat because he eats a lot" is now accepted.
