Are dogs colorblind?
How do dogs see colors?
How dogs "see the world" is a question that has been pondered by many a dog owner. Can dogs see colors?" Or do they see the world in black and white?

Stanley Coren, PhD and author of How to Speak Dog, notes in Psychology Today that dogs do see colors, but not like humans do.

Breed of the month: mini schnauzer
(Elly, a miniature schnauzer puppy and Luvk9s puppy class graduate, resides in Bent Tree.)
Schnauzers originated from Germany; their name means muzzle, or mustache (which is very descriptive and appropriate!)

Did you also know that:
  • Miniature schnauzers are a cross between the standard schnauzer, poodle and affenpinscher?
  • Schnauzers are terriers bred to go into the earth to hunt rodents?
  • Schnauzers have an exceptional sense of hearing (and like to bark) and are often paired with the GSD to guard lifestock?

"I have found when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the silent, devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source.”
