So imagine this. You are a hard working waitress who is working three jobs just to help pay your bills and keep a roof over your head. Your best friend is your dog, and he ends up swallowing a tennis ball. You rush him to the emergency room and they end up removing the ball. Only then do you find out it is a three thousand dollar surgery. You know you will have to work hard, but you do it. Anything for your dog. In this case, there was a small miracle from some strangers that helped her save her dog (and some money, too).
Christina Summit loves her dog so much, she has a paw print tattooed on her hand. While working one of her waitress shifts, an older couple noticed the tattoo and asked her if she was a dog lover, too. She told them yes, and went on to tell them the story of her dog who swallowed the tennis ball. They asked her how expensive it was, and she told them, but she also made it clear there was no cost that would matter more than her dog. She then went back to work. Only once she took the check did she notice the thousand dollar tip to help her save her dog. She ran back to the couple and insisted she could not take it, and they told her it was not for her. It was for her dog. Then they smiled and left.
Suffice it to say, Christina was beside herself, and still is. Tucker, her dog, is now home and safe again. And in so small part, due the kindness of one dog loving couple. Excuse me, I think it’s raining on my face.
