Baby Knut charmed us all!

5.4.2017 – Photos by Hartmuth and Doris Webb, Collage by Dumba

We’ve seen lots of heart warming photos of polar bear cubs and their mothers during the last months. That’s why I thought it would be suitable to walk in the memory lane and remember Knut as a cubbie with his very special ‘mother’.

This article is also a tribute to Doris and Hartmuth who had to leave us far too early.

I guess none of us can see a green blanket without thinking of our Dream Team.

The basket with Knut’s belongings was an essential part of his outings.

I don’t think the following photos need further comments. We remember the wonderful scenes so well ….

  1. Oh, how sweet this fluffy white ‘furball’ named KNUT was in 2007!

    Thank you, dear MERVI, for having brought all those photos we are remembering so well
    and also thanks for having reminded in the same time the much too early ‘bye-byes’ to DORIS WEBB and HARTMUT – and also THOMAS DÖRFLEIN by the images shown.

    Wishing EVERYONE a pleasant (even though always a bit sad!) monthly birthday* remembering day!

    * the 124th by the way (or 10 and 1/3 years)!

  2. Dear Mervi!
    Thank you for taking us along the memory lane with these heartwarming pics.
    The story of Knut and Thomas Dörflein was kind of a fairy tale – unfortunately without a happy ending.
    So many people were touched and charmed by this little bear and his cool bearded “mother”.

    Thank you too for the remembrance of Doris and Hartmuth.
    We will never forget them and the great time we had together.
    I am grateful to share these memories.


  3. Dear Mervi!
    Thank you for the remembrance on Knut and TD. It was a happy time.
    Thank you for remembrance on Hartmuth and Doris.

  4. Liebe Mervi,

    jedes dieser Bilder ist im kollektiven Gedächtnis von Millionen Menschen
    und das wird auch nach vielen weiteren Jahren so bleiben!
    Danke für deine Erinnerungen an die liebenswerten Fotografen
    und natürlich Thomas Dörflein und den ganzen “Hofstaat” um unseren Knut.

    Liebe Grüße

  5. Liebe Mervi,

    vielen Dank für die wunderschönen Erinnerungsbilder von Klein Knut.
    Nicht nur Knut wird unvergeßlich bleiben, auch Thomas Dörflein, Hartmuth und Doris. Die vier gehörten einfach zusammen.
    Deshalb freue ich mich ganz besonders über die sehr schönen Bilder von Hartmuth und Doris.

    Liebe Grüße

  7. Dear Mervi and Dumba
    You are right to show us these images of Knut and Thomas Doerflein,
    and to remember Doris and Hartmuth.
    I shall always be grateful for those years, and will never forget them.

  8. Liebe Mervi und Dumba.

    Schöne Erinnerungen. Danke


  9. Liebe Mervi,

    einfach nur schön
    und einfach nur schade…..


  10. Liebe Mervi!

    Vielen Dank für die wunderschönen Erinnerungsfotos!
    Ich kann es immer noch nicht begreifen, dass unser Dream-Team nicht mehr lebt.
    Es ist so traurig… Wir werden diese Zeit nie vergessen.
    Vielen Dank fürs zeigen!
    Liebe Grüße
