As you probably know our friend in Kuusamo loves honey. Now it’s been revealed that he even appreciates the taste of cheese.

In order to help a local dairy that has financial problems Sulo Karjalainen and Juuso agreed to star a video commercial. Although Juuso has tasted a cheese sandwich it couldn’t be taken for granted he would like cheese.

Master Juuso took everybody by surprise! According to the ‘manuscript’ Sulo would cut slices of a 5 kilo’s cheese and feed Juuso. However, Juuso grabbed the whole cheese and didn’t give it back.

He even tasted other kinds of cheese like Edam and smoked cheese and the same thing happened with them all! 🙂 Juuso was anyway generous enough to share some half eaten ’tiles’ of cheese with the other bears. All the bears seemed to love cheese!

The video taping didn’t go according to plan but what could be better PR for the dairy than a world famous bear loving their products. 🙂

A pool party coming

The bears in the Kuusamo Predator Center are still awake but in the late October or early November they should start hibernating. The weather conditions will tell the bears when the time is right.

Before Juuso & Co retire for their Winter nap the Center will arrange a pool party to celebrate the new swimming pools. Pasi Jäntti said he’s going to join the bears in the pool! Hmmm …..

Juuso found new inspiration again

As you may remember from a previous article of Juuso he hasn’t been inspired to paint during the Summer. However, he seems to have found new inspiration and painted no less than ten paintings!

Juuso paints with his whole body!

– Obviously the Autumn was a source of inspiration for our artist, Pasi Jäntti says.

Juuso kept himself busy but, of course, he needed energy so he enjoyed different kinds of berries, milk, pears and apples during the short breaks he took. 🙂

Juuso presents his latest piece of art to Pasi Jäntti.

Juuso is now 17 years old and weighs about 500 kilos. I’m sure the cheese helped him to keep his impressive weight! 🙂

The great artist is tired after painting in ‘tempo furioso’. 🙂

Knuti’s Weekly wishes Juuso and his bear friends a nice pool party and after that a pleasant hibernation period!

  1. Juuso Schleckermaul. 😉
    Käse ist eine Delikatesse !
    Ein interessantes Bild hat
    Juuso gemalt (Tatzen). 🙂

  2. Dear Mervi
    I am not sure who is training who in this story.
    I think Juuso is teaching Sulo. Cheese is made
    from milk and all bearsvknow that milk
    is good for them.
    Juuso then goes on to produce more masterpieces.
    A glorious story for a Saturday night. Thanks Mervi.

  3. Dear Mervi!
    The story with the cheese is wonderful. I hope the video will help to solve the financial problems.
    All artists need the inspiration. I am glad Juuso found his inspiration again.

  4. Dear Mervi!
    I agree, Juuso will certainly keep his enormous weight in case he is able to obtain so much cheese from his keepers further on.
    Wow 5 kilos of cheese all at once is quite a chunk even for a big bear.

    I am glad he found his inspiration again and created some of his wonderful “body paintings” in time before his hibernation.
    He looks gorgeous and so loveable like a very big living teddybear, especially on the last pic.

    I wish him and the other bears a cosy and relaxing hibernation, the keepers a wonderful wintertime and all a cool pool party before.
    I´m wondering if it is a good idea by Pasi Jäntti to join the bears into the pool… 😉


  5. I am convinced this AD will give considerable recovery to the dairy !
    GOOD LUCK! to anybody involved in the action.

    ” . . .but what could be better PR for the dairy than a world famous bear loving their products. ”
    Right !!

    What a skilled artist this big bear is – best to be seen in the painting shown above!

    But the best piece of art is the painter-bear himself ! Just look at this gorgeous photo shown in the end of this report: great – gorgeous – hilaroious – pretty – most beautiful . . you name it! A n d so touching!

    I join MERVI in her best wishes and give thanks to her for having brought exciting and interesting news of this special huge and kind bear once more -> ‘Ausnahemebär’, ‘Vorzeigebär’, keineswegs ‘Problembär’! 😉 🙂

    No for sure it’s no good idear to accompany the bear/s into the pool.
    I’D like to shout: “Pasi Jäntti, PLEASE DON’T DO IT!” . . . “Don’t risk to give a wonderful story a tragic and bitter end!”

  7. Thank you very much dear Mervi.
    Best wishes to Juuso and his bear friends.

  8. Dear Mervi,
    thanks for the nice report of the bears.
    Bear Hugs

  9. Liebe Mervi,
    eine gute Idee wenn ein so berühmter Bär ein enig Werbung für die Molkerei macht.
    Hoffentlich ist den Bären bei so viel Käse nicht schlecht geworden aber das sieht nicht so aus.
    Werbeträger und Künstler, dieser Bär und sein Pfleger sind ein Dreamteam!
    Ich wünsche den Bären und Pfleger eine nette Poolparty und eine gute Winterruhe.
    Herzlichen Dank, ist immer wieder schön von den Bären in Kuusamo Bilder zu sehen.
    Liebe Grüße Moni K

  10. Liebe Mervi,

    danke fürs Zeigen der schönen Bilder von Juuso und senem Pfleger.
    Ich wußte gar nicht, dass Bären Käse mögen, aber dem Juuso scheint der Käse zu schmecken.

    Das Tatzenbild, dass er gemalt hat, finde ich super.

    Da hat er sich die Winterruhe verdient.

    Liebe Grüße
