  • On page 81 (Pug), step 5, the color number 3364 should be 3864 and is missing from the color chart.
  • On page 94 (Orange cat), step 8, the color number 439 is incorrect and should be 739.
  • On page 120 (Poodle Mix) in the color chart, there is a color listed as 936 and the correct number is 963.
