Student Begs Professor To Let Her Bring Dog To Class Before Hurricane, And His Response Wins The Internet’s Heart

Hurricane Irma was quickly approaching Jessica Lewis’ college town of Statesboro, Georgia, and she wanted to evacuate to her family’s hometown near Atlanta ASAP. Before Jessica could leave, she had one more class to attend but she also had one more problem. In order to head immediately to Atlanta, Jessica would have to bring her dog Luna to class.

So Jessica did what any responsible dog owner would do in this situation—she wrote an email to her professor. Jessica tried to use her charm as she attached several adorable images of Luna to the email and wrote, “I realize the answer to this is probably no, but I thought that you might actually be a cool enough professor to say yes.” Scroll below to see how the professor responded.

The professor was offended that Jessica thought calling him “cool” would win him over, but his love for dogs made him look past it. Jessica told the Dodo that Professor Kennedy loved having Luna and he had zero complaints.

Luna still found a way to make friends while being on her best behavior.
