Can all Ubers come with dogs from now on, please?

A woman’s tweet showing a service dog riding shotgun in the Uber she hailed has turned into a viral sensation of sorts. The post by @spookygothgrama showed that she received a text alert from her driver letting her know that the dog would be in the car. She replied, “That sounds great.”

The next image shows the small dog resting its head on the seat and looking into the back of the car. (Insert “squee” noise here.)

Apparently the dog is a Pomsky, or Pomeranian Husky, and his name is Bullet and @spookygothgrama said she is the pup’s new bff.

For a Twitter user who just joined in April and only has 378 followers, @spookygothgrama figured out the secret sauce in a hurry — post dog photos. She attracted more than 80,000 retweets and 215,000 likes in 24 hours.
