While it's true dogs are "color-blind", the term isn't as literally true as it sounds. Studies have found that dog typically see blues,yellows and grays. They suffer from red-green color blindness, similar to that of deuteranopia in humans.

I noticed The Theory of Everything very early on mainly because I heard they were making a movie based on the life of the scientist Stephen Hawking. Most people know him because an illness had physically handicapped himself to a wheelchair and he can only speak with a computer making a voice. But he's still a phenomenal scientist, and I was interested to see this movie.
Lou Gehrig was a famous baseball player who played for the New York Yankees. His skill earned himself the nickname "The Iron Horse". However, near the end of his career people started to notice he was playing a lot worse for an unexplained reason. He suffered from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (now commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease) which originates in the brain that doesn't really affect mental ability but eventually renders most of the muscles in the body useless. While some people have survived the illness, Lou Gehrig did not as he died in 1941.
