This story is so incredible we don’t even know where to start! This is Cotton, a sweet, affectionate Pit Bull that was rescued in 2009 when his dad, Phil, came home from serving in Afghanistan and wanted a companion. Cotton is deaf, but that didn’t stop him from becoming trained as Phil’s service dog. Phil now serves in the Oregon National Guard and was gone all weekend long during a drill. Cotton missed him dearly and has been waiting by the door for him to come home. When the two are reunited it’s too sweet to even handle! One weekend might seem short for many people, but in dog days that’s nearly three weeks! Cotton is clearly so excited to see his dad again that he can hardly control himself.
