    Guess Poncho will just have to sniff it out.

    It’ll be the one that smells vaguely of cats.

    I’m making the bet now. This arc won’t end before December.

    BJ385 – I was really buying into your scientific explanation until I noticed that you misspelled “color.” That undercut everything you wrote.

    He didn’t misspell it. He used the proper English spelling. When I started school at an air base in a foreign country, I learned to spell like that. Colour, catalogue, grey. Caused scads of trouble when I returned to stateside schools. This was in the 60’s.

    Actually, he used both spellings. Must have relocated in the middle of the comment.
    I believe dogs can see blue and yellow, but even these are not as bright as they are to our eyes. And their sight works best on things that are moving. They do have the advantage of seeing better in the dark than we can.

    You made me chuckle, thinking of the possibilities… And you’re most likely right (starting my mental arc timer now).

    In Poochverse dogs are completely colorblind, and btw, dogs can talk. It’s a comic folks. Don’t take it so seriously and just go with the joke.

    From wiki.answers.com:
    Dogs are not color blind – they see color, but their chromatic acuity is significantly less than humans’. This is for two reasons: (1) dogs have far fewer cone cells in their retina (cone cells are responsible for seeing color); and (2) dogs are dichromatic (they see only two primary colors – blue and yellow) whereas humans are trichromatic, meaning we see three primary colors – red, blue, and yellow.
    Humans have 7 times higher proportion of cone cells than dogs, meaning that when dogs do see colors, they are pale or faded. However dogs have a much higher concentration of rod cells, which are responsible for seeing black-and-white, and also much more sensitive in lower light conditions. For that reason, dogs have much better night vision than people.

    and frumdebang: Educated in the States, but I read so much British literature that I find myself going back and forth in spellings without even realizing it.

    I’m pure Yank, but I used to live in London, so I’m well familiar with the spelling differences. Just trying to make a funny.

    Don’t you spell it Kullr, as apposed to colour?
