Cora the corgi and her mom Madison were on their way to visit family in Alaska when a beautiful moment was captured on film. Cora, who is a therapy dog in training, snuck away from Madison during a layover in Seattle, and went to sit in front of a fellow passenger in the waiting area.
The man was delighted to meet Cora and started petting her, even snapping a photo of the sweet little dog. Turns out, that man had lost his dog just the day before, which was why he was definitely in need of Cora’s natural sunshine.
Madison tells BuzzFeed, “I believe Cora has the ability to feel sadness and empathy for people. I think she can somehow sense who is experiencing depression, sadness, and loss. She aims to comfort people, it’s her favorite thing to do.”
