Professor Luna returned to my Torts class last night to teach animal liability under the common law and various state statutes. This is a picture with a few of her academic devotees during the break. The students did not seem to mind that the Professor would occasionally doze in front of class. Such is the life of a tenured canine academic.
Luna is renowned for her erudite treatment of strict liability of animal-based torts and personally demonstrated the concept of animus reverend (habit of return). Her following is worldwide (In Germany, she is simply called affectionately “
Herr Hair Professor” and is known to work for biscuits).
Of course, it is hard not to resent the level of attention and acclaim for Professor Luna when she visits. I also sit upon command and increasingly fall asleep in class. Yet, I have never experienced the level of attention shown by these young Luna acolytes.
