Before Saturday night, Christina didn’t know how she would be able to afford her dog Tucker’s surgery. The 37-year-old waitress was working three jobs, but still struggled financially, and Tucker immediately needed an operation. She found herself sharing her pet story with a nice couple she was serving at the Holiday Inn. Then, fortune turned in her favor. After hearing about her puppy, the couple left Christina a $1,000 tip on an $80 bill, with instructions to put the money only toward the vet. She was hysterical. In addition to working at the bar on weekends, Christina is a full-time chef at the hotel, and picks up hours at a local deli when she finds the time. She also volunteers 40 hours a week with a pit bull rescue center. She said she feels like God has chosen her to be the voice of animals. Awww! Check out the full story (and a cute picture of Tucker) here.
