My dog says it wrong. You should not.

An automated spell-checker won't catch your correctly-spelled but badly worded phrases. A professional editor will. You may think this is a mute moot point, but it's not. Incorrectly phrasing a statement, whether in written or verbal communications, can reveal your grammar weaknesses to business competitors and clients, pupils, and others who you would prefer to respect your intelligence and talent.

The only foe paw faux pas I'll admit to is #18, "sorta," and that's intentionally, when I'm being casual in Facebook.

However, my Border collie, a sheep dog
with no sheep, is prone to #1, "nipping it in the butt."
Sorry I had to out my elderly, faithful dog that way.
