5.6.2017 – Photos by Gudrun

To celebrate the 5th of June 2017 I chose to show you some photos by Gudrun from the Spring time in 2008 and 2009. Spring is the time of light and brightness and that’s exactly what the memories of Knut mean to us.

It looks like our bear boy was busy with something ….

Maybe he was planning what more he could do with the enclosure. As we remember he loved gardening.

  1. Liebe Mervi,

    vielen Dank für diese schönen Erinnerungen an Knut mit den Fotos von Gudrun.
    Knut in stiller und zufriedener Betrachtung seines kleinen Hofgärtchens zu sehen, war
    für viele Besucher ein besonderer Lichtblick.
    Diesen Lichtblick vermitteln die Bilder bis heute – leider auch mit viel Wehmut….

  2. Liebe Mervi und Gudrun!

    Es macht mich weinen. Dies waren ja so schöne Zeiten.



  3. Dear Mervi!
    Thank you for walking along the memory lane with us.
    Knut was such a sweatheart, one can´t but love him.
    Those were the days…


  4. Dear Mervi
    Having watched Lars in Aalborg these photos show how much like his father (and mother) Knut
    was. Although his handrearing by Thomas Doerflein ensured that he was relaxed in human company,
    the characters if both Lars and Tosca came through in Knut. Lars of course has other children, but
    only one with Tosca that we met. We were lucky to know him.
    I cannot help thinking of the young people last night in Manchester..

  5. Sorry, the computer cut me off.
    The concert last night in Manchester coming after such dark events there and then in
    London reminded me of the pleasure and hope that we all got here through Knut. Even
    in the dark days of losing Thomas Doerflein and then Knut himself, the spirit of Hope that
    this bear came to mean for us and so many who saw him in Berlin. A small candlelight flickers
    in the night.

  6. dear Mervi, dear Gudrun,
    these are wonderful pictures of Knut. Knut was content in his little garden with pool and with his friends who came to him. It was a special time.
    Knut bleibt unvergessen
    dear greetings to all

  7. Dear Mervi & Gudrun,

    Thank you for these beautiful memories….

    And Ralph, I couldn’t agree with you more!

  8. I visited Knut two times in summer 2008 and 2009,
    before my mothers weakness began. So these pics
    represent my remembrance very well. 🙂 I hoped,
    to meet Knut often, but his time on earth was over
    in Spring 2011, so I could never visit him again. 🙁

  9. Dear Mervi and Gudrun,
    thank you for these wonderful pictures of Knut.

  13. Thank you very much, dear MERVI and dear GUDRUN, for your lovely remembrance of KNUT at the occasion of his 126th monthly birthday, that’s he would have been 10 and a half years on Pentecost Monday of this year, June 5th, 2017 which I personally did spend happily at a tour to the region of my former ‘main place of residence for 16 years’, to the region aound Bonn, mainly visiting the ‘arp museum’ in Rolandseck and the ‘Rheinaue’ in Bonn. . . .

    And, DEARs, I have to admit: it was the first time since I did fall in love with KNUT
    that i did totally forget his monthly birthday and not make a collage! . . . Blush and sorry!
