  1. I have to say I was totally guilty of it when I was little with my first dog. We got to choose our dog for free among this litter of labrador puppies and among them was one black one. My dad really liked the black one and my little brother and I wanted one of the other ones that were golden. I remember literally saying that a black one would not look good in pictures. I feel so ashamed of myself for thinking that way. But we ended up taking the little black lab to make my dad happy and I never regretted taking him home. I loved him until I had to give him away because I moved and my parents went through a divorce.
