What is a dog’s sense of time?
When I think about my life with Sharav, it’s only time – the time we did this, how much time it took to do that, all the time we spent walking side-by-side, how he changed over time – but did he perceive time at all?
Was his entire idea of his own life just a very long 15-minute interval that was constantly getting stretched into the present, with me around all the time, and other humans around sporadically?
Did he grasp that he was getting older, that I was getting older?
Did he have memories of his own youth? Would he have identified those events as having happened in his distant or not-so-distant past?
