Usually when we see someone's receipt end up in the news, it's because somebody did something racist or went trolling for public sympathy. So it's a pleasant surprise that this isn't one of those times: a couple left a NJ bartender a $1,000 tip to help pay for surgery for her dog last weekend. "It’s just so overwhelming," Christina Summitt told The News. "He was just an awesome guy."

Summitt, 37, was bartending at the Holiday Inn in Clinton, NJ last Saturday when she had her fateful encounter. She said she got talking to a couple after they noticed the paw-print tattoo on her wrist. Summitt told them that Tucker—her Great Dane-black Labrador mix—had swallowed a plastic ball and needed surgery to get it out. The emergency surgery and hospital costs would come to about $2,700.
