Python turtle problem

Blue

New Coder
I'm new to this so sorry if I'm doing this wrong.
I keep getting this error and not sure how to fix it.
file:///C:/Users/Ava%20Garay/Desktop/Error.JPG

Python:
while True:
    askQuestion = input( 'Pick between a dog or a cat: ' )
    
    if askQuestion == "cat":
        print( 'Good choice!' )
        break
    elif askQuestion == "dog":
        print( 'Too bad! you get a cat. ' )
        break
    else:
        print( 'Please choose between a dog or a cat' )
    
askQuestion = input( 'pick a color for your cat! \nChoose Blue, red, or yellow: ' )
penSize = input( 'Please pick a pen size 1 through 100: ' )
penPace = input( 'Lastly, pick a pen speed, 1 through 100: ' )

import turtle

s = turtle.getscreen()

window = turtle.Screen()
window.bgcolor("white")
turtle.color(askQuestion)
turtle.pensize(penSize)
turtle.speed(penPace)

this might anger you alot cuz i think the reason is you just forgot to import the turtle module. all you do is put import turtle at the top and it should work. its just a small mistake
 
Can you try once again to upload the picture, or maybe write what it says on the picture? Now, there is just a file path to the file you tried to upload, but we cannot access it as we do not have access to your computer.
Please use the "Attach files" button under the message composer, find the picture and click on open in order to be able to upload it.

I've copied and ran your code to test and I guess you get this error message?
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:/Users/%user%/OneDrive/Desktop/cf-test.py", line 27, in <module>
turtle.speed(penPace)
File "<string>", line 8, in speed
File "C:\Users\%user%\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python311\Lib\turtle.py", line 2171, in speed
elif 0.5 < speed < 10.5:
TypeError: '<' not supported between instances of 'float' and 'str'

So, the problem is with the penPace variable. It expects an integer/float but it is assigned a string. The solution is simply to specify that the input should be taken as an integer/float. Let's go with integer.

So instead of
Python:
penPace = input( 'Lastly, pick a pen speed, 1 through 100: ' )

# it should be

penPace = int(input( 'Lastly, pick a pen speed, 1 trough 100: '))
 
I took your project a step further. The dog is a little big for the screen as it was what I was using to familiarize myself with turtle. I've not shrunk it down for the tkinter window.
