People typically try to avoid communicating with other passengers while riding trains.
Unless, of course, a sweet Italian greyhound named Cosmo, age 2, happens to be one of those passengers.
Greyhounds are known for having a little bit of anxiety, and many of them take some time to warm up to and trust people. But Cosmo works to disprove that notion each time his paws touch the railway station.
On a particular Tuesday afternnon, Cosmo was making friends remarkably quickly on a London Underground metro train. Cosmo was willing to bring comfort and joy to everyone who would give him pets. He encountered a woman holding a coffee, a man in a suit, and travelers with baggage tucked by their sides and beneath their feet.
Cosmo Lane’s mother Megan Lane told The Dodo, “I love having him on the train with me because he always brightens people’s day.” He seeks friendship from everyone he encounters.
When Cosmo joyfully leaps up to a stranger, Lane said she is usually wary, especially when he jumps straight on their knees. She discovers that most people are eager to give him the affection he needs, establishing Cosmo as the official London Underground Therapy Dog.
People frequently grin and inquire about holding or petting him, according to Lane.
Cosmo has a history of giving people affection and company when they most need it. In Lane’s situation, Cosmo turned out to be the ideal friend.
Lane stated, “I got him when I was broken-hearted and really afraid to be living alone for the first time in my life. He’s been my little companion and the nicest company. He snoozes on my legs between the covers.
Cosmo is on a quest to brighten everyone’s day, whether he’s hugging his mother at home or kissing a new best friend he just met. He sets the bar high by consistently demonstrating that even the most reclusive commuters occasionally appreciate running into a complete stranger on the train.
