Is anything just black and white? Rumi wonders the same thing.
From what I am told, dogs do not see color. At night, Rumi can see his ball better than on a sunny day since the movement of that green is more vivid when the snow is less white.
But Rumi himself really stands out against snow, even when it’s close to dark. His outline stands out. But the contrast is so strong that his body becomes almost solid black, with two shiny eyes peeking out. He’s showing off his colors: he just got cleaned and the groomer is obviously a Patriots fan. Nice coordination with his red collar. But all that really matters is the green ball.
To him that ball is grey and most vivid when in motion.
The black pup, the (mostly white) snow and then, those incidental items with color. Thank goodness.
