Meet Tucker. He just underwent a very expensive surgery after swallowing a hard plastic ball.
He’s okay now, but his owner, Christina Summitt was stuck with a bill she simply could not afford.
While at her bartending gig (one of three jobs she works to make ends meet), she struck up a conversation with a couple who were fellow dog lovers. She ended up telling them about Tucker and how she didn’t know how she’d ever pay for it — her jobs plus her husband’s full-time job was hardly enough to support her three step-children.
When it came time to close out, the man left a $1,000 tip on their $80 bill.
Summitt told the man she couldn’t accept it, but he insisted. “I just stood there in shock. I walked around and hugged this couple. They said, ‘We’ll be praying for Tucker,’” she told CNN.
