Madison Palm has been taking her beloved dog Cora everywhere since she adopted her a few years ago. The 8-year-old puppy, who is a blessing and a sweetheart, is also a therapy dog. Palm is used to approaching people with Cora wherever they go because of her friendly nature, but this time the dog’s intentions surprised even her owner.
Palm and Cora were at the Seattle airport on their way to Alaska from their Idaho home. The sweet Cora suddenly approached a stranger who was sitting a few seats away from them. It’s nothing out of the ordinary when you travel with such a loving companion, but Palm had no idea that her dog was actually comforting the poor man.
“She was already at his feet being pampered before I could even call her.” Palm told TODAY, “I asked him if she bothered him. ‘No, no,’ he said, his face solemn and his eyes watering. ‘Last night, I misplaced my canine companion.'”
Palm only realized how talented Cora was after she had always thought of her as a special dog. Cora approached a stranger who was in tears because the adorable corgi was melting his heart!
“I truly believe she possesses a talent.” Palm stated, “She knows who is hurting and who needs her. When he told me his dog had died, I looked at Cora and thought, ‘You are so incredible. How did I get so fortunate?'”
Here’s a link to the emotional encounter:
