The help provided by service dogs like Stella — not to mention the friendship — is immeasurable.

The thousands of service dogs working in the U.S. do a lot more than you might think.

When we see service dogs out in public, casually guiding their human through public spaces, we don't always stop to consider just how smart these dogs really are or appreciate that they are trained to do so much more than meets the eye.

These dogs are trained for much more than helping people with vision or hearing impairments.

They can work with people who use powered or manual wheelchairs, have various types of autism, or are prone to seizures. They can also alert people to other complications, like low blood sugar. According to the National Service Animal Registry, you can qualify for a service dog if you have any condition that limits your daily physical activity.

Although Drew didn't specify why he has a service dog, he did joke on "America's Got Talent" that the state of California gave him one because of his stutter.

But do you return the extra McNugget? Nope. You don't even feel an ounce of guilt for it. You dunk it in barbecue sauce and relish it like a gift from the gods.

A former McDonald's employee in Edmonton, Canada let the world know that sometimes an extra McNugget is not a mistake and he's become a viral hero.

Children in middle school can be super shallow when it comes to fashion. To be part of the in-crowd, you have to wear the right shoes and brand-name clothing, and listen to the right music.

The sad thing is that kids that age can be so creative, but they're forced into conformity by their peers.

Some people never escape this developmental phase and spend their entire lives wasting their money on material goods and judging those who do not or can not.

They say that kids say the darnedest things, and seriously, they do. Anyone who has spent any significant amount of time with young children knows that sometimes the things they say can blow your mind.

Since teachers spend more time around little kids than anyone else, they are particularly privy to their profound and hilarious thoughts. That's why NYC kindergarten teacher Alyssa Cowit started collecting kid quotes from teachers around the country and sharing them on her Instagram account, Live from Snack Time, as well as her websiteand other social media channels.
