Die Knuipe

Love and respect walk hand in hand!

Posted by Mervi on July 12, 2012 at 8:10 AM

Dear friends! Again I think it's time to remind all the visitors - especially parents with children - about the proper behaviour while visiting a zoo or an animal park. Some photos from Ranua made me feel very bad even though there hasn't been any serious incidents - not yet anyway. How can we make people realize that visiting a zoo is also visiting the animals' home?

Visitors - don't throw or drop things in the animals' enclosures!

Mervi - Birgit schrieb gestern in ihrem Blog, Aslak würde jetzt "Pentu" heißen....
Weißt Du darüber etwas? Ich dachte die Namensfindung wäre erst noch?

Bargit -- Two puppies can entertain each other. Miss Nellie and Tyson might like a rest once in a while...... :-)

Crissi -- The mini rabbit and sloth are very cute!

Caren -- Wow, the Giggler has grown a lot taller!! Still adorable! The hat is "class."

Susan -- Thank you for the "cheers" -- Gandy took a complete bath after his pedicure and is looking good! He was a very good goose.

Dumba -- Thank you for the new tour--will take it tomorrow.......

Bargit... I missed your post on the two puppies. How wonderful... and what a lucky puppy (or puppies if you take Sarsam's suggestion :) ) to have a home with you!

Crissi... Thank you for the cute sloth picture!

Caren... What an adorable photo of the Giggler!

Time for supper (and a recharge on my Nook!) I still have a Cobb salad and a "Sonoma" salad (baby lettuce with dried cherries, bleu cheese and glazed pecans) from the yummy store. One of them will be on the menu tonight... but first, a cheers to Sarsam and Gandy for a successful pedicure!

Dumba... I will be back to follow your links after the Nook has a bit more power!

Have a good night, all!

Thank you Knuti-Judi - the bears are very relaxed and they remind me that it is time for me to go to bed now :D

I wish everybody a good night :)

- Schoen, dass ein bewaehrter CAREN-Bericht in KWM zu finden ist von Hellabrunn :-)
- Weniger schoen ist, dass es nun auch in Hellabrunn einen ungeklaerten dramatischen Fall gegeben zu haben scheint. - Ziemlich misterioes. Arme Pueppi.
- Schoen ist, dass BAERGIT in die Husky-Zwerge verliebt ist. Es wuerde mich nicht wundern, wenn sie SARSAMs Tipp aufgreifen und BEIDE nehmen wuerde!
In jedem Fall viel Glueck mit dem neuen Familienzuwachs oder den neuen FamilienZuwaechsen..
- Weniger schoen ist, dass MERVI schon wieder gesundheitlich angeschlagen ist.
Speedy recovery, dear MERVI, and PLEASE take good care of yourself!!!
- Schoen ist, dass es PATICIA ROBERTS besser geht, obwohl sie offenbar noch VIEL Geduld braucht. TOI-TOI-TOI!
- Schoen ist, dass sich CELINNE mal wieder gemeldet hat.
- Und schoen ist uberhaupt, dass es immer noch ein paar Unentwegte hier gibt, die sich regelmaessig mit Neuigkeiten der diversesten Art melden.
Danke Euch allen.

Gestern hatte ich viel an Euch gedacht, als ich mich an unsere 2010 Oster-Tour erinnerte und einen Spaziergang 'fuer Euch' machte :-) Siehe Begleittext im Album.
- Gestern Abend bzw. heute Morgen war ich ploetzlich so muede, dass ich mich doch schnellstens in die Kiste geworfen habe um 3 Uhr. Dann ist's aber heute im Laufe des Tages so gar nicht mehr geflutscht und heute Abend war schlicht "der Wurm drin", deshalb erst jetzt die Bilder eines kleinen Berlin-Spaziergangs an einem Sommertag FUER EUCH:

Guts Naechtle - Ich guck mich zwar noch ein bisschen um, glaube aber nicht, dass ich noch grossartige Aeusserungen von mir gebe.

Schlaft gut und lasst's Euch gut gehen - und entschuldigt bitte, dass ich jetzt faul NUR Deutsch geschrieben habe . . .

Sad about Puppi, though...

:D There is a big report of our day in Hellabrunn in KWM now :D

Crissi - and in Nuremberg it is also not very nice these weeks.

Sarsam - with Püppi it must have happened some minutes after we had left the apes. It is sad, we lost the second chimp in the watermoat.

Bärgit -auf den Pasch müssen wir natürlich trinken. :)

Caren - das mit den Schulklassen war doch vor den Ferien in NRW
auch bei Anori so schlimm. Alle machen ihre Abschlußfahrt in den
Zoo und die Lehrer lassen die Kinder gewähren, wie sie wollen. :(

Susan - http://tinyurl.com/cfeyjy3 girl with cute sloth :)

Sarsam - http://tinyurl.com/bnbk95z pigmy rabbit ;)

Bargit -- So very sad about Puppi--something surely must have scared her or lured her to the water.....
All best wishes in making your choice between the two puppies. You could do like we did the last time we "had" to make a choice--we took both of them (but these were cats) :-)

Ludmila -- You leave for USA on 29 July?

Susan -- Very sweet sloth story!!

Mervi - I hope, that you are feeling better

Patricia - take care

Bärgit - I Am sorry to read about the chimp

Crissi - Yes, Copenhagen has changed a lot the latest 5-10 years

Sarsam - thank you, Wapiti and little Rose are fine. Thank you for asking.

Good night to you all. Greetings from Copenhagen

Bärgit - I had a long chat with two teachers today at lunch. They were preparing their lessons for the coming days and had no idea what their pupils were doing. They assume that the children (class 8) have been educated at home how to behave in a zoo (grrrrr).

Ludmila - Bingo !
When are your leaving?

I think the teachers drank coffee

Ludmila... That's right... you did mention Yosemite- I forgot! Say hello to Nikita for me... he is a half-brother to Louisville's Siku (the brother from another mother ;) ) He is the son of the Marty (Siku's dad (who is also the son of Arki)) and Nan, born in 2006. That same year, Crystal (Siku's mom) gave birth to twin girls; they were transfered first to the Pittsburgh Zoo and then later to the zoo in Columbus, Ohio.

Crissi... I will try not to work too hard; I am just wrapping things up for the day and getting ready for tomorrow. It will soon be 17:30 and I will be on my way home (so I can toast to Sarsam and Gandy!) Cheers!

Crissi - TP was crowded with chaotic school classes today and guess where the teachers were?

Crissi - Pasch!
Do you feel like having some Thymiantee /thyme tea? Refreshing and quite tasty.

Caren - I spent the day on a field trip at Wildpark Bad Mergentheim. Yes, there were lots of classes and it takes some effort to tell the kids how to behave before you enter the park.
I'm glad it worked out alright.
