I wish Flyball was a lion

This is an amazing story of the bond and love between a lion named Christian and the 2 men who bought him from Harrods (yes, the department store) when he was just a cub.  The clip below is of their first reunion – a year after Christian was released back into the wild in Kenya.  This grainy footage from the 1970s of the fully grown lion joyfully embracing his friends brought a lump to my throat when I watched it on TV last night.
