Alabama Man and Dog Have Tearful Reunion After Devastating TornadoPublished March 5, 2012
Americans in parts of the Midwest and the South have been engaging in a fierce battle with Mother Nature—and Mother Nature is winning. With a series of devastating tornadoes ravaging the area, dozens have been killed and many more displaced as their homes, and essentially their way of life, has been destroyed.
Still in spite of the myriad of news articles relaying the devastation and destruction, there is one story that illustrates the light at the end of a very dark tunnel for one Alabama man, Greg Cook, whose home was destroyed when the tornado came through Limestone County.
Only Cook’s beloved dog Coco was at home when the EF5 tornado ripped through his house. Cook rushed home after the forceful winds had subsided, only to see that his house, along with 50 others, had been destroyed.
Yet, Cook was not worried about losing his house or any of his personal belongings to the storm—he was worried about losing his beloved Chocolate Lab.
After sifting through the broken remnants of his home, Cook spotted Coco sopping wet and shivering in what was left of his hallway.
It was a tearful reunion for Cook and Coco. “It was just such a relief, I was happy to see him,” Cook said upon finding Coco. “I love my dog, he’s my best friend and I was just so happy to see him.”
