People sometimes say that dogs can’t see color. That isn’t true! But, they don’t see as many colors as we do. While most humans can see a full rainbow of colors, dogs can only see two colors: blue and yellow.

Dog vision is not as sharp as ours is, either. Nor can they see differences in brightness as well as we can.

Here’s how some colorful clouds might look to humans:
