Don't Kill That Dog! I'll Pay Its Vet Bill--A True Story
"Three dogs rushed up to my truck when I arrived at Mrs. Jones' house to repair her appliance yesterday. One of the dogs was completely shaved from his underbelly to his tail. So I asked Mrs. Jones what happened.
"She said, 'I took this little one (pointing to the little mixed breed Chihuahua barking up a storm) to the vet last week. While there, the vet explained to a man that his dog needed a very expensive operation. He told the vet to just put the dog down. He couldn't afford the surgery and the dog was old anyway. I jumped into the conversation and said that it would be a shame to kill the dog if the surgery would save its life. The short of it is, I said that I'd pay for the surgery and keep the dog.'"
Mrs. Jones negotiated payments with the veterinarian, the dog had its life-saving surgery, and now lives in its new forever home with Mrs. Jones and her other two dogs.
