Top 3 heartwarming stories of the week

We've got a rousing rendition of a Disney tune and what might be the sweetest prom couple ever. Here are Newsy's top three heartwarming stories of the week.

Army Sgt. Jason Bos and Cila, whom he affectionately calls Cici, served in almost 100 missions together in Iraq over a four-year period before returning to the states in 2012.

"Bos left the military before Cici. They were apart for two years, and when Bos learned that she was retiring, he jumped at the chance to adopt." (Via CBS)

Bos worked with the American Humane Association and Mission K9 Rescue, a nonprofit organization that provides assistance to retiring and retired service dogs, to raise the necessary funds to fly Cila back home from Germany. (Via Facebook / Mission K9 Rescue)

Clearly, the love between the two did not diminish even though they were hundreds of miles apart for two long years. They were finally reunited April 30.

  • A driver is in serious condition following a rollover crash.   The driver apparently was driving too fast to negotiate the curve near 9200 East 46 Street near the U.S. post office around 2:22 a.m. Friday. He lost control of his pickup truck, causing it to overturn several times and throwing him out of the vehicle. Tulsa Police Corporal Jeremy Lawson said the driver “actually vaulted over a creek that runs underneath the road (and) rolled several times before coming to rest in a parking lot.”  The driver was not wearing a seat belt. The crash caused numerous injuries to the driver’s face. He was taken to a Tulsa hospital. Cpl. Lawson said both speed and alcohol are going to be factors in the accident. There were no passengers in the vehicle.
  • A mall store employee in Arkansas is recovering after a customer bit her while attempting to steal a stripper pole, police said. The employee, who was working at the Spencer’s retail store in Little Rock’s Park Plaza Mall, said a customer entered the store and tried to return an item, KATV reported.  The employee told police she recognized the woman because she had suspected the customer of stealing from the store on another occasion, the television station reported. According to the store’s manager, the customer decided she would rather take a stripper pole in place of store credit, but did not have enough money. The woman then attempted to leave the store with the pole, KATV reported. The employee followed the employee into the common area of the mall, wrestling the pole away. At that point, KATV reported, the customer bit her on the upper right arm before fleeing the mall. Mall security was contacted, but the woman could not be located, KATV reported.
  • Oklahoma Democrats are pinning their hopes for the future on a woman who admittedly hasn’t much of a past, since she’s 24 years old. But Anna Langthorn, the new Oklahoma Democratic Party Chair, has very definite goals, and a vision for the future of her party. And she’s not shy about saying it’s going to be a long, hard road to return the ODP to a state of parity in what is known as the reddest of red states. We’ve got a lot of work to do if we want to get back to any kind of balance, and it’s gonna happen over the course of the next ten years, not overnight -- Anna Langthorn, Oklahoma Democratic Party Chair Her election at the state convention in May made her the youngest ODP chair in history. She says it’s also a sign that Oklahoma’s Democrats want change, and she’s encouraged by what she sees as a resurgence in activity in a party that only fielded a handful of candidates in the last election cycle. “We’ve seen in the party, this year, a huge revitalization,” she said. “We have organizational meetings in the spring, precinct meetings and county meetings and congressional district meetings and our convention, and the turnout for all of those meetings was triple in most cases what it normally is.” County organizations in the western part of the state that have been dormant, in some cases, for 20 years have restarted, she said. The GOP has opened the door, to some extent, with a series of resignations that will require six special elections to fill open seats before the end of 2017. “Those special elections, with the exception of one, are all the result of Republican leaders either abdicating their duties because they got a better job offer, or Republicans having scandals, right? Either ethics or sex scandals,” Langthorn pointed out. So job one for Democrats is to try to pick up some of those seats in the state legislature. But 2018 is right around the corner, and from the governor’s office on down there are a number of key offices on the line. “In 2018, we have a lot of opportunity to hold Republicans accountable,” Langthorn said. “But we have to do the work.”
  • A pit bull dog will be euthanized next week for attacking two young children as they sat in their car seats.  Police say a 5-year-old boy and a 2-year-old girl suffered puncture wounds to their faces after the dog broke through a fence in Lancaster and attacked them Monday.   The children's mother was able to pull the dog away from the van with the help of several other people.   Lancaster Police Lt. Bill Hickey says the girl was released from the hospital Thursday. The boy is still hospitalized in serious but stable condition.   Hickey says the dog's owner is voluntarily euthanizing the animal June 30. The dog is currently under quarantine.   
  • An 18-year old Broken Arrow shooting victim may be paralyzed from a gunshot to the neck. He is hospitalized, but his name has not been released. One of the suspects, Noah Robinson Wayne McCarty, has surrendered, but police are still looking for 18-year old Noah Alexander Herndon. Both men are suspects in the shooting and beating of the victim at the Greens Apartments Wednesday night following an argument earlier. If you have information, call Broken Arrow police at 918-259-8400.
