In the mid-1950s, Life magazine sent photographer Joseph Scherschel to capture one of the most fascinating subjects in the magazine’s history.

The spread was called Living Room Lion – Blondie, A Docile 200-Pound Texan, Becomes A Member of the Family. The title seems to tell it all, but there is much more to the amazing story.
