Christian the Liondog / Big Red Bow Award

July 28 /08

We had to post this amazing video and share it with you - it'll bring tears of joy to your eyes. I guess no matter what pet you have, their love is totally enduring. Christian will probably remind you of yourself when your parents come home ..... I think he is part dog.

Today we sent the Big Red Bow Award to Rocky, Bear, Lacylulu, and their mom, Claudette. They deserve special praise for always remembering our birthdays and special events, and for always reminding us to wish each other well and cheer each other on. They are like a big bow that ties us together. They are so thoughtful and kind and we wanted to honour them for all they do.

Now that they've received it, the Big Red Bow becomes an award of special recognition for anyone with a blog well-done. Rocky will be the first to send it off.

We love you, Hudson kids. xoxo

Happy Birthday to you, Chef.
My name is Mango the Maltese kiddo, nice to meet you.
I'm scared of big lions but the video touched my little heart, my eyes filled with a lot of water.
Thanks for sharing.

We loved that video so much that we have it on our blog too!! Sadly, Mom and Dad keep telling us that we can't have a pet lion, something about there not being enough room in the house!! we don't know what they are talking about- their bed is plenty big!!! :)

That video is very touching. Such love he had for the big cats.

Pedro said...


My mom saw that video before and it definitely made her cry, especially because the story does go on. All animals are very, very special.


Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

Chef! That video was amazing! Nearly made the weird human cry! She says that I do all the same things as Christian when she gets home! Hehehe!

My human got the shoes! She says a big huge thank you! I told her that she definately needed to work on her feet before she can wear I offered to take them outside to play with!

Instead of getting to play with the shoe I got whapped on the nose with it! That's the last time I try to entertain her new presents!

Chef!!!!!!!! This is the most adorable video ever. Mom is all gushy now.

Dude, I missed your b-day! No wonder you are wondering if I am still your friend. Your b-day for dog's sake!!!!

You know what? Bloglines isn't telling us you updated, so we've been thinking, that Chef ... he must be away on some fantastic holiday. But here it was just bloglines being poopy.

I sure hope you had the best day ever!


Deetz said...

Chef, that is soooo cool and it is well deserved for Rocky, Angel Lacylulu and claudette and glorious

Georgeous said...

Oh My Dog, is that for real? So gald Christian kissed them & didin't do bitey face!

Rambo said...

Yes Chef,
I agree with Georgeous. We all watched and were crossing our paws that Christian didn't do bitey face with the humans. Instead he kissed them. AWWWWWWW. So sweet.

For some reason, it's taking forever for your page to load, so the video hasn't appeared -- Wait, it has finally! And it's the one we thought it is.

We've watched this movie so many times because it's so neat and we're falling asleep at the computer, so we won't watch it again tonight. But it is sooooo worth watching.

Giving this award to Rocky, Bear and Claudette is a terrific choice. They are so good about remembering others and letting everyone know who needs help or a kind word.
