Christian the Lion

Ah, the Swinging Sixties in London! When and where else could you share your neeps and tatties, your crisps and biscuits, with a lion? This is the story of Christian the Lion, sold at Harrod's a long time ago to a pair of guys who loved him. He made it home to Kenya . . . only to meet them again, but in his home years later. You don't want to miss this one!


  1. A vintage photo of Chauney and Shelly with the Bay sweater included. Who can teach a lion not to eat from the table.

  2. That video never gets always brings me to tears. I'm cracking up at Javi's comment though now, especially the sweater part, haha!

  3. Thanks M!

    I also liked the gorilla, but sometimes blogger makes it hard to post comments. Don't know why.

    by the way: it was National Pig Day on March 1st in the U.S. :)

  4. Hey Addie/P,

    Gotta love the pigs! I'm sorry I missed their big day. BTW, it's National Woman's Day on March 8th. Another one we shouldn't forget!
