Problem

A researcher wanted to see if different breeds of dogs preferred toys of certain colors. The researcher presented each dog with 3 toys, identical except that each was a different color, and recorded which toy the dog played with the most in a set time period. Here are the outcomes and partial results of a chi-square test (expected counts appear below observed counts):

They want to use these results to carry out a \chi, squared test for homogeneity. Assume that all conditions for inference were met.
What are the values of the test statistic and P-value for their test?
