Combination hearing/scent. If a human develops sharper hearing when he has no eyesight, just think of a dog that already has hearing that is many times better than that of a human and covers a higher frequency range, which gives it a better sense of spatial orientation to begin with. Pretty cool shit.
then explain how the dog stopped at the truck when the ball rolled under it.
show your work!
Try this (for real): Close your eyes and slowly walk towards a wall. Even without making any sounds, you sense the difference between being close to a wall and far from it. This is because there is always sound even when you think it is quiet (ambient noise) and your brain calculates that sound and the returns (sound bouncing off objects) to aid your sense of spatial orientation. That is why special acoustic rooms that are treated to have no echos (anechoic chambers) make you feel dizzy and disorientated. It's because your brain can't figure out where you are in relation to things. Now take this effect and multiply its scope and accuracy by 100. That dog probably "sees" everything around it fairly accurately using just its ears.
It "sees" through sound. Mystery solved. Dogs have superior hearing, so it stands to reason that a blind dog's sound-based sight is superior to that of a blind human. It's a amazing the the news and the "experts" they refer to didn't even mention this extreme basic theory.
Edit: Neon got it.
That is why I hate scenes in movies or TV shows where somebody is supposed to be sneaking by someone in such a way that they would definitely change the ambient room sound (walking between the other person and an open window or a TV, etc.), yet the other person is completely clueless.
Yeah, sometimes you don't even realize how aware you are of your surroundings. It goes back to us not being Saber Tooth Tigers but rather the prey of Saber Tooth Tigers.
Does it put its own oven mitts on?
daredevil did it first
I don't really see what the big deal is.
A friends' chocolate lab, has vision, yet can't seem to grasp the concept of fetch. He'll grab the ball and then maul it like a retard.
There is a blind black kid that clicks
How doesit see the wire fence?
It probably ran into it and remembers.
Maybe she does it like this guy:
Bullshit. I want to see the 600 other takes of the dog bumping into shit all over the place.
