At least he got his pit bull fixed.I was helping out at our Tri Valley Spay Neuter Surgery Center yesterday and a client came about 30 minutes early to pick up his dog. I told him to wait and I would see if she was ready (awake, walking, etc) yet. I went to the back and sure enough, she was ready to go home.
I brought her out front and the client was sooooo happy to see her. He had been so worried about her and got their early to make sure she was ok. I told him she was fine and everything went well.
He then asked if she should get a e-collar (those big collars that animals wear to keep them from licking themselves). I told him that unless he knew she was a "licker" it usually isn't necessary. He still seemed concerned. I told him that he could certainly get one, but that it would cost $15. He then said, "Money is no object when it comes to my baby."
Which, as a stand alone statement, coming from a big burly guy who was worried about his dog, is really quite sweet. The part I found slightly amusing, if not slightly annoying, is that the owner did not pay for the surgery. He, despite money being no object, took advantage of our Free Pit FIx program and got the spay surgery done for free.
Ah well...at least he got his pit bull fixed.
