    So what we need to do is look at the sentence and figure out the subject of the sentence. So you tell me, who or what is the central subject of this sentence?

    The dog is the central subject to the sentence! :) So a predictive nominative is the noun that follows the linking verb. Ex: For many of us on the team the fans were an embarrassment. Embarrassment restates the subject (fans). So embarrassment is the predictive nominative.
