The World Seen Through a Dog's Eyes

So turns out dogs don't see the world in black and white.  It's more like browns and blues (and some grey)...  I wonder how they'd react if all of a sudden they could see... reds, for example.  Or greens...


As it turns out, red is a rather difficult color for dogs to see.  And everything seems... muted (as you can see below).

  2. Maybe they'd be as amazed as the kid who first heard his mother's voice after getting implants? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDD7Ohs5tAk)

    Or they'd go completely bonkers and run all over the place!
