So I picked up a new book today called "How Dogs Think" by Stanley Coren.
I will admit that I was lured by the fact that it has a corgi on the cover. However, I had somewhat recently finished reading a book called "The Wolf in the Parlor: The Eternal Connection Between Humans and Dogs"
So I have gotten about 40 pages into How Dogs Think and it has been discussing how they view the world. I find it rather interesting that due to what kinds of cones they have in their eyes, they really don't see the color red. Red comes up as black/grey. So I was looking through the throngs of images in my corgi Google Reader feed and found this image:

I wanted to reblog it as she prefers people to do, but since she is on tumbler and I am not, I really couldn't. Sugarhut, if you want me to remove this, I will. Back to the subject at hand, seeing as it is a rainbow corgi picture, I couldn't help but to try to somewhat replicate what a dog sees. This is what I came up with:
So if you want to take anything from this post, buy your dogs blue and white balls for fetch in the grass and yellow Frisbees with blue or white circles on top for fetch, because they will see it better. Neon orange is kind of grey.
