watch it here

A lion wants himself to be feared by people to protect his pride but what if two human beings are his pride?

I still haven’t gotten over the story of Christian the lion. Every time I watch the video, I remember our dog, mo, and it makes me cry. Christian was so much like a pet dog especially when he leaped into one of his owner’s arms and licked his face.

The Christian sensation started with an extraordinary clip posted in 2008 at YouTube. The clip shows the heart warming reunion of two Australian men (John Rendall and Anthony Bourke) and their pet lion named Christian, after a year of separation.

I learned about the clip on Reader’s Digest, February issue, where there was an extra story about the lion. I just checked the clip on You Tube out of curiosity but I never thought that it would hit me as hard as a good romance movie or novel.
