Preparing beetroot for lunch, and quickly changing from a white t-shirt in preparation for the inevitable, I thought about what a great natural food colouring it was, not only do you get the colour you also get a hint of the taste.
Natural food colourings are wonderful, not quite as an intense a colour, but added to icing (i’d avoid the onion one in the image if it is for icing!) you can make some wonderful looking cakes and biscuits, and feel happy with the fact the colour is au naturale.

Colour and dogs is an interesting one.
You may have seen in your local pet store, a display of Blue and Yellow toys marketed as being better for your dogs eyesight. Is it a gimmick?
Well, our beloved companions it has been concluded, do not see in black and white as was the myth, they just cannot distinguish between Red and Green, so if you throw a Red ball for example they will have a poorer chance of seeing it on a Green field. Of course if you are scent training, this is not such a bad thing :)

So dogs see in shades of Blue and Yellow, and if you were to put yourself in their shoes (errr in their paws) you would see things slightly differently.
