    There's a very interesting chapter on dogs and colour in Stephen Budiansky's 'The Truth about Dogs'. Aled sometimes has a problem seeing a fawn wooden dumbbell on grass - presumably because it is near the red spectrum that dogs haven't got. Oddly, he would probably see it better if I painted it bright blue, because he would distinguish more clearly between blue dumbbell on green grass. Knowing the colours dogs can and can't see explains a lot about their behaviour.

    That is an interesting article. I wish that Mother Nature made squirrels. rabbits and cats red. My house would be a lot quieter.
