Pet owners often give veterinary teams great gifts, but @hmbvet received something unexpectedly special.

“We had a homeless client with a shaggy dog that had become embedded with foxtails.”

“We sedated the dog, shaved its matts, pulled foxtails, trimmed the nails, (and) gave it a bath.”

“We asked for – and expected – no payment.”

“A few days later, the guy came back in with a gift.”

“He had purchased a flower planter. In it, he had planted half with green lettuce and half with red lettuce.”

“Of all the many gifts I’ve been blessed to receive, this one still stands out as my favorite.”
