Willow, by all means include them, particularly if you have pieces over a wide range
of subjects. I'm thinking that in addition to your Dog Handling procedures, if you
also have a few software procedures, a few hardware procedures, perhaps some
assembly instructions. All of these things can show your skills as a technical
writer, and show that you apply those skills in a variety of settings and
situations. I think you are showing creativity, something that will always be in demand.
