Dogs’ senses are just too powerful that they can also feel hidden emotions.
Before she even lived her now beautiful life, Cora the corgi was once a neglected dog. Her current owner, Madison Palm, rescued her when this sweet little dog was just 7-years-old and was in terrible health condition.
The poor dog had been a stray most of her life. She’s underfed, malnourished, had never been checked by a vet. Cora had also given birth to multiple litters of pups over the years.
In the beginning, Madison just planned to be Cora’s foster mom. But that feeling didn’t take long enough to change.
She was so sweet and loving that Madison decided to give her a forever home instead.
Cora is now living a happy life in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, together with Madison and her family. Because she has such a beautiful personality, she already started training to become a therapy dog.
Madison told TODAY that she helps keep her calm when she’s dealing with anxiety. She also discovered that Cora has a gift for sensing other people’s feelings too.
The beautiful story started when Madison and Cora were in Seattle airport.
They’re on their way to visit Madison’s mom who lives in Alaska.
At one point during their long layover, the corgi got up and “snuck away” from her mom. She headed straight over to a man who was sitting in a chair by himself.
Yet, before Madison had a chance to call her back – the man started petting her. Although she didn’t want Cora to be a bother, it didn’t appear that the passenger minded her company at all.
“Cora quietly tip toed away from me during our crazy long layover and plopped herself right next to a complete stranger. He gave her scratches, told her how cute she was, and proceeded to take a photo of her…”
Madison then discovered a heartbreaking story about the man, everything then made sense.
Turns out, the man was heartbroken over his own dog, who’d passed away the night before. It seemed like Cora was aware that the stranger was distraught and in need of comfort, which is why she approached him.
Madison wrote on Facebook:
I’ve never had a doubt that Cora can sense those who are hurting and those who need companionship and love. She is a natural born therapy dog in every way. I am so blessed to call her my dog
Luckily, Madison was able to capture the beautiful moment between Cora and the man on her phone.
The story went viral and it spread all across the internet. By no surprise, people fell in love with the corgi who seems to have been born with an extra-big heart.
One Facebook user commented:
“That is amazing. I know what it’s like to lose a dog. It’s tough. So the fact that she went up to that guy and showed him some love is truly amazing.”
Another person wrote:
“oh my god I’m tearing up. She is such a beautiful soul I love her so much”
Going from her Instagram account, it looks like Cora’s living a fun and adventurous life with her mom and four-legged sibling. She also seems to have a true calling, which is to help others.
Madison told 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.”
We couldn’t agree more, dogs are really wonderful creatures. They’re definitely made to be with humans. Lucky are those who have their beloved dogs in their lives. Especially if you are currently on home quarantine, nobody could make you feel safe amid this pandemic other than your family, and of course – your dog.
