Dogs sometimes see things that aren’t there

  • Lesson from Sugi: Dogs don’t have very good vision so sometimes they imagine they’re seeing things.
  • Sugi says,  “Sometimes I think I see another critter in the forest and I bark! but then I realize it’s only a stump…how embarrassing”

Near Blareview Drive in North Vancouver, there’s an area of forest recently thinned out for forest fire prevention. This left a lot of stumps and logs laying around. This area also has had frequent black bear sitings. Hiking through this area, sometimes Sugi starts barking. I look around and don’t see anyone or any bears (thankfully! )He then realizes that he’s just imagining shapes out of the debris.
