He said that he was just reassuring him and asking him if he was ready to board just like the passengers get asked at the gate. He further said that he asked ‘Coopie mate, that he will be fine and he hoped that he had a safe flight and they will see him on the other side.
The TikTok video was hit with the people with a viewership of over 3.3 million. Many people were moved by the video. People were very much interested in the ‘dog whisperer’ and wanted to know more about him. Jacqueline Felgate even interviewed him which was posted on Virgin Australia Instagram.
