March - the month giving us mixed feelings

Dear friends! March has become a month of night mares but it also offers some happy moments. We're sad thinking of the loss of two lovely polar bears - Knut and Fritz. However, at the same time we can also be happy about the baby bears that have now come out with their mothers in many zoos. We just have to learn to walk hand in hand with our sadness and our happiness!

Good night from Copenhagen. Everything went fine with Nöel and Nord, luckily.

I have been at the theathre this evening, so it is a little late. I can see, that you Mervi of course already have shown the video from Zoo.

Happy Easter. I hope to be back soon in a more normal way. Paw waves from the everstarving.

Ludmila - I hope you had a good trip even when it was business, not pleasure. :D - I found the tralalaa photos, too. Hmmm......

Chris - I talked with TBM yesterday and she was in a good mood. She hoped to get home tomorrow.

Our cherry tree is blooming. The weather turned wet and cold. We hope that we would not get the night frost

I am sending the best wishes to you and Lloyd

Die Schwäne brüten dies Jahr am Bootshaus. :)
Dort sind sie auch sicherer als am alten Platz.

Chris - Thanks for the link! We don't see photos of Anori and Luka so often so it was great to meet them again. Oh bear, there was also some tralalaa going on .... hmmm, they are both very young but at the same time old enough .....

Chris, das sind schoene Bilder mit dem tollen Schlitten.
Aber mit diesen Platiksachen habe ich doch auch immer etwas Angst
wegen moeglicher Verletzungen im Mundbereich oder dass sie Kleinteile verschlucken.
Fein, dass du wieder online bist!
Was gibt es neues von den Schwaenen am Main?

NÖEL AND NORD HAVE BEEN INTRODUCED TO EACH OTHER. You can see photos and a video in KWM. In the video we can also see a glimpse of Inge! :D

Ralph - Your report is delightful because it's YOUR report with your impressions!

Knuti-Judi - Happy pre-Easter greetings to you!

Both Dumba and Monika aus Berlin took wonderful pictures in the Zoo
and Ludmila's recent visit shows Tonja in particular as I saw her. My report
is thus much shorter than normal.

I am now planning to be in Aalborg from 16 May for 4 or 5 days. The thought of
seeing two Polar Bear cubs with their mother is so exciting.

Britta-Gudrun - Ranua sure looks like a polar bear world for the time being. It's wonderful both for Venus, Nalle and Manasse and, of course, even the visitors are delighted to see the bears in the snow.

Ralph - Thank you so much for the report! I start drafting it as soon as possible. - You have a lot on your agenda this year. I hope you can make it to all the places you plan to visit!

First of all, I am keeping my fingers crossed and hoping many soft
Polar Bear hugs to Teddybaerenmutti.
I am now back in Kidlington after a great 4 days in Berlin. I met Monika
and Dumba, who took some photos in the Zoo which I hope they will publish.
I have sent Mervi a short report on the animal side with a tribute from Mini Kati and BN
to Fritz and the victims of the Christmas Market.
I am now preparing for a visit to Aalborg in mid May for a few days. I hope to got to Munich at some time in the Summer, although there is a Knutitis meeting in Berlin in July as well.
I must also go back to Doncaster fairly soon.

Mervi, danke vielmals fuer die Ueberdosis Niedlichkeit im KWM!
Ja, du hast recht, man kann nicht in allen Blogs präsent sein, ohne sich
zu verzetteln.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - it's raining and it looks like we're going to have a rainy Easter, too. Well, we can enjoy the company of Easter bunnies anyway can't we! :D

Dumba - Thank you for the optimistic morning greetings and a fantastic breakfast buffé! - I only follow a couple of other blogs and FB to keep me updated - I simply have no time for more. Editing and publishing in KWM takes so much of my time. I'm glad of all the photos I receive but in most cases I have to write something myself. Of course, I'm repeating myself but I want KWM to be a magazine and not a photo album. :D

Inge - How exciting! I hope Nöel's and Nord's first meeting will go smoothly.

Britta-Gudrun - It was raining here last night so I couldn't see the full moon. - It was great to see Lars doing so fine. I'm always glad about Ulli's reports with good information and fantastic photos.

Today I have again the greatest pleasure to offer you a new 'story' of Nalle in KWM. I mean Nalle in Ranua! :D Have a happy Hump Day!

Guten Morgen und danke dir, liebe Dumba, fuer die guten Wuensche und
das staerkende Fruehstueck.
Trotz Vollmondnacht habe ich prima geschlafen und seit gestern geht es mir wieder
etwas besser mit der Luft. Im Gegensatz zu euch allen freue ich mich auf den angekuendigten
Regen zur Luftreinigung, sorry.

Mervi, der Bericht ueber den Gentlemen Baer Lars ist fein. Ich freue mich,
dass es ihm gut geht und er mit dem Alleinsein gut zurecht kommt.


Inge, ich druecke die Daumen fuer eine harmonische Zusammenfuehrung von Noel und Nord!

Ludmila, anders kann ich Django die TRopfen nicht verabreichen - besser ein bisschen Schutz als gar keiner, aber Danke fuer deinen Hinweis.

Sarsam, gute Besserung fuer deinen Lloyd.

Ralph, wie war das Wiedersehen mit Kathi? Ich hoffe, du hattest eine gute Rueckreise.

PLEASE, believe that no hardship lasts forever, even though some of you had to ask themselves too many times lately and for a long (too long) time already:

MERVI - Thank you so much for the link to ULI J's fantastic polar bear site
(it's such a pity I myself am not able to honour lots/all of the information and pics
available in the net about polars of our friends and others as much as they
would deserve it. - I simply haven't got enough time due to to my 'personal speed'.
LARS is still such a beautiful and lovable adult male polar bear.
! I really miss him in ZOO BELIN !
