Hurricane Irma was barreling toward the southeastern United States, and Jessica desperately needed to evacuate to her parents’ house in Atlanta after class. Unfortunately, her parents’ house was in the opposite direction of her own, so she needed to to bring Luna with her to class in order to save time and head north safely.
Concerned for her dog’s safety, Jessica typed up an email to her professor: “I realize the answer to this is probably no,” she began, “but I thought that you might actually be a cool enough professor to actually say yes, and so I figured it was worth a shot. Can I bring my dog to class today?”
Jessica forwarded a couple of pictures of Luna to her professor, hoping images of the adorable pup might help her case.
It only took a few minutes for her professor to respond. “Did you think calling me ‘cool’ would get me to say yes? Because it won’t work,” he wrote. “What will work,” he continued, “is that SHE’S OBVIOUSLY A GOOD GIRL SO OF COURSE YOU CAN BRING HER.”
“She walked around and got pets from everybody and had a great time,” Jessica explained in her Facebook post about Luna’s precious classroom visit. “She made a lot of friends.” Obviously, she was a hit!
Luna wandered to the front of the classroom to sit right by the professor as she dutifully gave Jessica moral support. Jessica’s professor was right: she was a good girl!
