In 1969 a young Australian, John Rendall and his friend Ace Bourke, bought a small lion cub from Harrods pet department, which was then legal. 'Christian' was kept in the basement of a furniture shop on the Kings Road in Chelsea, the heart of the swinging sixties. Loved by all, the affectionate cub ate in a local restaurant, played in a nearby graveyard, but was growing fast...
A chance encounter with Bill Travers and Virginia McKenna led to a new life for Christian. He came to live in a huge enclosure and to sleep in a caravan at their Surrey home. Then in 1971 he was flown to Kenya, his ancestral home, and returned to the wild by lion-man George Adamson. Nine months later in 1972, John and Ace returned to Kora in Kenya. This clip is of their reunion at that time.

Greg Cook hugs his dog Coco after finding her inside his destroyed home in Alabama following the tornado in March 2012.
Only Greg Cook's beloved dog Coco was home when a tornado tore through his home in Limestone County, Ala.
Cook rushed home after the winds had stopped to find his house and 50 others destroyed. While homes can be repaired, it was his chocolate Labrador that he feared he'd lost forever.
But like the rainbow at the end of the storm, there was some good news when Cook was reunited with Coco, who managed to survive the Category-5 tornado.
Cook sifted through the debris and crawled through a window to find his dog soaking wet and shaking in a hallway.
"It was just such a relief, I was happy to see him," said Cook, who was in tears when they were reunited. "I love my dog, he's my best friend and I was just so happy to see him."

A lady saw my Lost & Found ad and I picked up Clyde while Jared was in school! Incredible reunion of Jared and Clyde! Get out the tissues!! Can you tell I'm crying through out this video? If you love happy endings, this video is for you! Also, check out the video made shortly before Jared came home of my German Shepherd, Triton--who was heartsick over Clyde being gone. In no uncertain terms, both showed each other how much they had loved and missed each other!
