Dear friends! This Summer will be as 'strange' as the Spring was. I hope the sweet memories of the Super Summer 2007 will help us to stay in a good mood!

Good morning! Guten Morgen!

Ralph - I'll see if I can make a memory article of Victor. The Boss certainly deserves it.

Yeo - I wish you a great time with your grandchildren. Hopefully the weather will be 'suitable'.

Our Russian friends Anna and Arkadi are dedicated polar bear photographers so there are always a big amount of photos ... today I've published a 'story' where KAI has the leading part but, of course, you can even meet GERDA, SHAUNA AND NORDI.

I wish everybody a cosy Saturday!

Good morning dear Knuipians!

Herkules and breakfast are ready. Enjoy your meal!
This are very sad news about Victors dead.


R.I.P. Victor

Heute hatten wir hier in Berlin eine richtige Tropennacht. 23 C und unangenehm schwuel. Man konnte kaum atmen. Jetzt regnet es und langsam wird es ertraeglicher.

Heute kommen die Kinder. Simi muss dringend in den Swimmingpool. :D

I wish you all a pleasant Saturday!

Molly Merrow has just published her Fathers day tribute to Victor. I am sure she would let it appear in KWM..
I join you in toasting The Boss. He will be in the icefields with Churchill

Ralph - I was chocked by the sad news, too. The death of Victor was so unexpected and he wasn't so old. The Boss was such a wonderful character - he will be deeply missed.

Ludmila - I'm still waiting for the rain - hopefully I will wake up to the sound of rain drops tomorrow.

After my joy at my safe return from France came the sad news today from Yorkahire Wildlife Park that Victor has passed awayafter kidney failure at the age of 22. The big males rarely live long lives. But this is a very sad day, as Hamish wilk move to YWP

Good morning! Guten Morgen!

Dumba - What happy news of Bibi! I wish her all the best and hope she will give birth to a healthy baby. I also wish Muecke all the best in her future home. I wonder if she's going to Pairi Daiza?

Britta-Gudrun - I certainly hope the heat wave will be over as soon as possible. I want to attend a tea party with Esther! :D

Ludmila - Has Muffin wet her fur lately? :D

Ralph - Welcome back home! I'm sure the Cotswoldies were happy to meet you again. :D - I'm sure you have a lot to tell us about Flocke and her trio. I hope you have enough food supplies for the fortnight.

In KWM you'll find Gudrun's report from the Zoo Berlin. I wish everybody a most pleasant Friday!

I arrived home safely last night after a magical 4 days in Antibes wwith 4 magical Polar Bears. The three cubs are still small enough to look like cubs but are now eating large amounts of solid food. Flocke is able to let them play and so has plenty of time to find herself a place to nap and yet be able to keep an eye on them.
I am now at home for two weeks, which is fine by me as I have a lot to do. The photography on this trip exposed the limits of using a phone rather than a proper camera. The bright sunshine ruined many close up shots and the enclosures and pools are large so that the bears were often just too far away. This was not a problem for me as there have already been great photos of them in Knutis weekly

Gute!n Morgen!

Dumba, das sind schoene Nachrichten aus dem Zoo. Bei Muecke denkt man natuerlich direkt an Raimond Opitz, der immer so liebevoll mit seinen Schuetzlingen gesprochen hat.
Bibi wuensche ich alles Gute.
Hast du heute Nacht wieder unter Bettflucht gelitten?

Mervi, heute muessen wir noch einen heissen Tag aushalten, dann haben wir die Sommerhitze hoffentlich ueberstanden.

OMG - There are real news of ZOO BERLIN:
Gorilla-Lady Bibi is said to have a baby in due course8!?)
. . . .And dear charming most loved MUECKE will leave Zoo Berlin towards Belgium (sniff)

That's what I got to know when I just thought spontaneously I might have a look into the home pge of the zoo. Should I really be the first to tell this?? Cannot believe it . . .

Have good dreams, Dears and a good start into Friday tomorrow morning.

Good night now!

Britta-Gudrun - Isn't it great Django is appreciating your company again! :D I'm sure you had some very cosy morning hours together.

Ludmila - It's been a quiet day here. Maybe everybody's waiting for a cooler weather. The heat makes us all more or less dizzy. :D

Uncle Sergej is, of course, at our service. I'm watching a James Bond movie so maybe I'll have a Dry Martini - shaken not stirred. :D

Guten Tag!
Auch hier ist es wieder ziemlich warm, also bleibe ich lieber im Haus, nachdem Django nach einigen Monaten das erste Mal wieder den Vormittag mit mir auf dem Sofa verbracht hat. Wie hatten es sehr gemuetlich.

Mervi, Finja in Wien ist schon sehr gross geworden.
Ralph wird uns viel zu erzaehlen haben. Leider kommt er wegen der Quarantaene in England nicht in der Buecherei an den Commputer. Also ist Geduld fuer seinen Bericht angesagt.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! It's still unBEARably hot here so I just popped in to say hello and maybe I'll have an ice cold Herkules, too ...

In KWM you'll find Jutta's fantastic photos of FINJA, NORA AND KIBALI. Despite the heat our animal friends are doing fine.

I wish everybody a pleasant TDT! I'm hoping Esther and Thor will have a tea party soon! :D

Minka kommt immer wenn der Regen nachgelassen hat. Sie bleibt meistens trocken. Ich nehme an, sie sitzt unter dem Auto und wartet ab. Muffin rennt durch den Regen nach Hause, sie ist dann nass.
Mervi
Ralph had a wonderful time in France.

Ludmila,
manchmal denke ich, dass Katzen bloed sind, weil sie bei Regen lieber irgendwo unter einem Busch Schutz suchen anstatt schnell ins Haus zu laufen. Django kommt auch oft ganz klatschnass nach Hause, dabei hassen Katzen dir Naesse doch so.
