Something a bit more descriptive than your second suggestion would surely be better. The sample solution just says: 'dog' is an invalid month ___ I'm struggling to find a reference to an old joke about Unix being very terse in reporting its errors - something along the line of "If Unix was a car it'd just have one big red warning light on the dashboard".
