  • What seems like random directional behavior in my dog reveals itself in fresh snow or muddy trails.

    I can now see the tracks Felix smells. I see the steps of neighbors I do not so. I can see them turn to each other and have a conversation at the corner. I can see a pair of elk, together, than diverge, perhaps to feed on different shrubs.

    Felix lives in a realm where the scents must be as loud as a crowded party or a rock concert. He is overwhelmed by loud smells I never sense. He can hear frequencies my ears don't.

    Me, in my big advanced overly developed brain, fed by my maybe more advanced visual cortex, remain utterly deprived in my other sensory inputs.

    Only by tracks enabled temporal weather events to I even get a partial clue to the amount of information overload my dog receives.

    Secrets might be revealed...
