Question Dog time

If a dog experiences 7 years to our one....does that mean that 15 minutes feels like 2 minutes to them. ?? (Just something I was thinkin about and thought I would ask)

7 years to our 1 applies to age development.

eg. human lives 70 years. dog lives 10 years
eg. human is considered adult at age 21, dog is considered adult at age 3

not to time perception

and (*7) is not totally accurate; but close enought

Aah ok, makes sense, more thought should have been put into my question, lol. Just something I was wondering. So if 7 years is not accurate what is. Is it less or more than that. ??

Is that sort of like who tells the deer where the deer crossings are located? Do they get fines for crossing elsewhere? What if they cross in a moose crossing zone? Are other animals allowed to cross in deer crossings?
If the sign says no domestic garbage, does that mean that wild garbage is ok?

My mind goes to weird places.

I tend to wonder what my dogs think when I pick up their poop in bags. Also, why does my gal-dog bring me a toy to reward me for being a good girl and going poo? (no, wait, don't answer that)

If 22 mins was 2 mins to them, I wouldn't feel so bad leaving her in the kennel in the mornings while everyone is out.

Great critical thinking!

This is why I asked, lol. I have to leave ours in a kennel right now when we go out and it hurts. I was hoping time would pass faster for them in this situation.
