For a child, losing a favorite stuffed toy can be a traumatic experience. Airport Police at Norfolk Airport, Virginia, know this and so when they found Cookie Dough, 8-year-old August Bridge’s favorite friend, they went all out to return the toy in a memorable way.
August first realized that she had lost Cookie on the drive home from the airport. “I thought she was going to cry,” mother Kelly told The Virginian Pilot. “She had just got it a few weeks ago out of one of those claw machines at Chicho’s Pizza with her dad and she was really attached to it.”
Kelly called the airport, who quickly located Cookie and promised to look after the toy until it could be picked up. When Kelly and August went a few days later, they found that Cookie had been on some amazing adventures while they were gone!
