(WXIA) -- The wildly popular 11Alive News Hope & Weather Tour will return this school year.

The tour features two of 11Alive's most lovable characters: morning meteorologist Chesley McNeil and service dog Pirelli.

Pirelli, like all of his friends at Canine Assistants, was born for a life of service to others. And just like those he was destined to help, Pirelli was born disabled. He was born missing one of his paws.

But thanks to a prosthetic foot, Pirelli has a new lease on life. He travels metro Atlanta with Chesley, teaching kids about acceptance while the meteorologist teaches science.

Last year, the Hope & Weather Tour visited more than 30 Atlanta-area schools, and Pirelli became an instant celebrity. He was even featured on "TODAY."
