Every Dog Has Its Day

, , | Hopeless | December 4, 2016

At work, we’re able to send group messages around the floor. Recently one of the operators sent this gem:

“A woman just called in and told me that she had to take her dog to the emergency vet. He’d been bitten by a rattlesnake but they wouldn’t give him any anti-venom since they didn’t have any insurance. It was $1000 upfront. A man who had brought his own pet in overheard and paid $500 on the spot to help the woman’s dog. It’s good to hear that there are still decent people out there.”

For the record, I work in emergency dispatch and we hear many horrible things. I’m not sure why the woman called in about that or if she was calling for another reason and happened to tell the operator about her dog, but it really was a wonderful story to lift the spirits when morale can be so low with the things we hear on a daily basis.
