Madison Palm has always known her dog, Cora, is special, but something Cora did recently was enough to still surprise her -- and impact the life of a stranger.
Madison was in an airport with Cora, who is trained and certified as a therapy dog, when Cora left Madison’s side and scurried over to a man sitting by himself near their gate.
At first Madison was troubled by Cora’s impulsive move and apologized to the man.
But the man wasn’t bothered at all. In fact, he appreciated the attention from Cora, especially since -- the man explained -- he had lost his own dog the night before.
Amazingly, Cora sensed that this man was sad and took it upon herself to cheer him up.
