Most teens would be crushed if their dog ruined their trip to Peru. But Jon Meier of Eau Claire, Wis., shook it off with a smile, says the AP:
Officials at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport told 17-year-old Jon Meier that the chewed-on document was fine, but authorities in Miami rejected it and wouldn’t let him board the southbound aircraft.
His family’s 1-year-old golden retriever, Sunshine, chewed a corner of the document, obscuring some numbers. Meier couldn’t get another passport in time to join the trip with his Spanish class from Eau Claire North High School. The 12-day trip ended Monday.
Meier says he can’t blame anyone, not even Sunshine: “I love her too much.”
Sounds like a boy whose dog chewed up some (imaginary) homework in the past.
