      Hi lupopippa,

      I’ve heard that dogs are colourbind, but I don’t know to be honest what colours (if any) they see. I wonder how we find out…..

      Hey lupopoppa,

      what a random question! I have no idea i am afraid. As James Pope says it will also be pretty hard to find out one way or the other….maybe you should give it a go?

      the simple and quick answer is “i don’t know” … sorry … but if you do find out maybees you can let us all know … good question though … a favourite song of mine is by Bill Nelson called “do you dream in colour” and again the answer is i don’t really know … do you know if you dream in colour?
