Jessica Lewis recently decided to evacuate her college town of Statesboro, Georgia and head for home near Atlanta before Hurricane Irma arrived. There were only two problems. One was that she had a class to attend, and the other was that she had her dog Luna with her, and so she did the only thing a dog lover would do: she wrote to her professor and asked him if it would be OK to bring Luna to class with her.
“Dr Kennedy, my name is Jessica Lewis,” she wrote in a letter that’s since gone viral. “I realize the answer to this is probably no, but I thought that you might actually be a cool enough professor to say yes, and so I figured it was worth a shot. Can I bring my dog to class today?” How did the professor respond? Scroll down to find out. (h/t: dodo)
