Meade + Chocolate = Uh-oh!!!

The other day I was trying to get a good picture of Meade for my digital photo class..............

No, I didn't Photoshop them! (I wish my Photoshop skills were that good....... I can barely put David Archuleta's head on someone else and make it look good.) This is what my camera took and it looks like Meade is a genuine Chocolate Lab. If you have any clue why this happened could you please tell me? I'm very confused. Also, how do I submit pictures for GDB's Calendar? Thanks

Now what do I do with the patch?

Service Animal Restrictions

I just got done reading Mandy's blog post about service animals. I thought it was a really good post and all her links were awesome! Now I am here to give my thoughts about service animals.
Firstly, I think psychiatric service animals are wonderful, to an extent. People feel the need to abuse service animals. For example, (this is a totally hypothetical thought) say someone with OCD went and got themselves an animal and trained it to calm them when they see some disorder, that is just not right.
Secondly, I think that all service animals should come from a legit service animal organization. If someone rescues an animal from the shelter and observes that the animal needs something to do with it's life they should make a job for them at home. You could have them fetch the newspaper, or pick up your baby's toys (for a nice cleaning) or you could even train them to turn on your electronic devices!
Thirdly, service animals should be a domesticated species. Dogs and mini horses fall into this category. I don't believe that monkeys should be used. I don't even think that monkeys should be kept as pets. And nobody had better play the "We evolved from monkeys". The fact is, we didn't! Genesis 1:26 and Genesis 2:7 should sum that up.
Fourthly, I think the U.S. Government should keep a record of all service animals. That should make rules and regulations that are consistent for the whole country. Shouldn't the government take care of it's people that are paying taxes to them? Even the disabled ones.

If you did read that whole thing I hope it didn't offend you in any way or for any reason. If it did I am turning on comment moderation and we can talk it out through email. I doubt it should but you never know.................

By the way, I am Christian. I do live in Utah but I am not LDS. Crazy, huh?
