Gentleman in Lobby: I brought you this brand new collar thinking one of the dogs here could use it. It was supposed to be a Christmas present for a Great Dane, but he did not make it until Christmas.
Me: Thank you, and we are so sorry to hear about your dog. What happened?
Gentleman in Lobby: He was my future son-in-law's dog. His house got robbed a week before Christmas, and the dog chased the guys who broke in. He got hit by a car on Rt 24 and was killed. We just wanted you to have this.
