How i wish I could adopt and raise a cub like both of them? Reunion with an old friend feels so heartwarming And yet the lion can remembered them as way of showing its gratitude for raising him. That was so touching ! Referring to Andrea's latest post,this is also considered as one kind of love. But this one is more unique cause is between a human and animal. Perhaps you can called this as friendship too since a dog can also be a man's best friend. Then why not a lion?
