It's a new year and I thought I'll introduce something new on Knutitours. Instead of newsletters I now have a TV program called Knuti's Weekly Magazine where I'll inform you of VIS's (Very Important Stuff). I have a little staff of co-workers to assist me: Yeo, Knutilda (aka Elke Frank), Viktor and Mervi. I hope the staff will grow little by little...
May I tell you that this first week of 2009 has been very busy and filled with dramatic events! Just check the news!
The most dramatic moment this week was, of course, that I was napping so tight that I didn't wake up when Auntie Sylvia came with my food! I demand that my keeepers from now on carry a bell they can ring when it's my feeding time. Oh boy, the catastrophe was near but luckily I woke up...you can read more about this in Yeo's zoo report.
Then there was this thing with the Russian bear and Flocke but I haven't give up my hope yet!

I have also a weather report with Gitta's and Dusty's adventure in the Winter Wonderland!
A weekly magazine without a video would be like Bärlin without Knuti ....
With a heavy heart I must broadcast the news from Nürnberg about a Russian bear who was playing with MY Flocke! What do girls see in these foreign bears? That bear hasn't even got a name!! I was told that he's heading for Madrid and only staying for a while with Flocke. Okay, I feel a little pity of him because he was separated from his Mom so early and can't even stay in Nürnberg. But I'm also glad because I still have a chance...you know what they say about love and war...
It should be me instead of HIM!!!!!!! Grrrrrr.....
What's so special about him? Well, if you're interested in seeing more photos of these two - here's the link:
It's been a real 'Eisbärenwetter' in the whole Europe and I've heard it's been very cold in USA, too. Well, it's warm somewhere anyway - Luisa and Allyson have reported that it's been very hot in Brazil and in Argentine. Some of us are skiing, some of us are sunbathing! I don't know about the weather next week - one thing's sure though - it's going to be weather!!

A Winter Adventure in Eschweiler - by Gitta und Dusty
We just come back from a fantastic walk. The sun is shining, it is not too cold (-3°). The first time in my life I've seen a gigantic wild boar in front of us (perhaps
I can tell you, I was really afraid. But the wind was good for Dusty and me, so we could change direction and escape.
Dusty loves to play in the snow.....
...but it's also so nice to relax indoors!
During the feeding on the 2nd of January Knuti showed many different faces, I have selected three characteristic examples:
Cute Knuti is directing Marcus throwing the food
Knuti "the beast"
Innocent Knuti, still "een kleenet Kind"

Wie uns soeben mitgeteilt wurde, hatte die Mutter unseres Herrn Ober Knut Ende Dezember Zwillinge bekomnmen. Einen Jungen und eine Tochter. Tosca hatte ihre Kinder angenommen und diese auch gestillt. Leider wurde heute bekannt, dass die Geschwister unseres Herrn Ober Knut am gestrigen Freitag verstorben sind. Anscheinend wurden sie nicht genug mit Nahrung versorgt und starben an Unterernährung.
Ihre Mutter Tosca lehnte ein Interview dazu ab.
We have been informed, that the mother of our waiter Sir Knut at the middle of December became twins. A boy and a girl. The mother had feeded them too. The both children died after four days. This was said yesterday by the german TV-station rbb. They died because their mother didn´t had enough milk to feed them.
The mother Tosca wouldtn´t be made an interview with Knuti TV.
