I have no problems with my tan!

5.8.2016 – By Mervi, Photos and video  by Jessie and Doris Webb, Collage by Dumba

This story was first published on the 25the of July 2009. I think it deserves to be read and seen at least once more ….. Our magic bear always talked to me!


Hello folks! It’s time again to show you some new photos of your favourite bear. I am your favourite, right?

I’ve been very busy lately with gardening, designing new ‘headwear’, entertaining my visitors and of course, playing with my Aussie dog – just check the video (I hope it works!).



My cave is my castle!


…and I’m the King in the Knutclosure!



So you think I’m looking very pale. Hmmm, what can I do about it?


Of course, I have a solution – don’t I always! You people are so funny – you’re lying hours and days on the beach trying to make your skin darker. I simply roll in the mud and voila – I have a great tan! The great thing with this tan is that I can wash it off – I just dive into my pool and get my pale look back again.


I love designing! My speciality is different kinds of headwear….




I think my sun glasses are much more elegant than any glasses from Ray Ban!!


A perfect sun hat


Maybe I should do some gardening now…..


These plants look good – no need to do anything!


I found a little snack – a carot. Not my favourite food but it will do….it’s better than salad anyway!




Can a bear be cuter than this????


Oh yes, I can!!

  1. Liebe Mervi,

    Knuts vielseitige Verkleidungen waren legendär und bleiben unvergessen.
    DasAussidog war eines der wenigen Spielzeuge, die auch seinem Forscherdrang widerstanden haben,
    weil sie quasi unkaputtbar waren.
    Ach ja, liieb von dir, uns heute wieder mit diesen zaubärhaften Bildern zu verwöhnen.

    Liebe Grüße

  2. Liebe Mervi!

    Those were the days.



  3. Liebe Mervi,

  4. Dear Mervi

    I have posted a link to this special article in Knutitis “Our Little Prince”.
    Knut remains the most special of all bears. We were so fortunate to
    have known him.

  5. Dear Mervi!
    Thank you for these wonderful memories.
    Knut was one of a kind and so loveable when just being himself.
    Doris made brilliant pics, they were and remain outstanding and full of love for this charming cutie.
    We have lost so much since then.
    Many paw waves and hugs

  6. Dear Mervi! Thank you for the wonderful pictures.
