Austin the Flyin Lion

While out in Venice California last week with my daughter, we ran into a local icon and his two legged companion. This is the story of Austin the Flyin Lion, a Pomeranian pooch and his master, Johnny Mitchell. The duo have been celebrity fixtures on the Venice beach scene for a number of years. Back in 2010, Austin went missing one day. Someone had stolen him from Johnny's home and after 2 years of looking, he had given up hope of ever seeing his lil buddy again. Check out the video below to see how the two were recently reunited.

...and yes, Austin was named after the Texas capital city.
