      I believe that current evidence suggests that dogs have vision the equivalent of being red-green colour blind in humans.

      I think so – they can’t see green I think…

      Great question, bebo!

      Yes, they are. I wish we could ask one.

      Hey bebo,

      No I think they have some very limited colour vision.
