I had a yellow lab when I was in high school. She died of old age. I made the mistake of telling my husband that I always wanted a male black lab. I also let it slip that if I was to ever get another dog I would name it Walter, after the character Walter of Fringe.
And what do you know? There are three black male pups in the litter. And "they are always the last to go because no one likes the black pups".
Come on!! It's just not fair. I also remember saying.. no more big dogs..
