A white love story in Vienna

Apr 12th, 2018 | By | Category: Zoos in Austria

12.4.2018 by Sisu, Photos by Jutta Kirchner (Vienna) and Marko Junttila (Ranua)

Grüss Gott! Tere! Terve! This is your Sisu again but this time my newsletter isn’t about me. It’s about my big brother Ranzo and his beautiful Estonian girlfriend Nora who now live together in Vienna. As you perhaps noticed I started with greetings in ‘Austrian’, Estonian and Finnish.

Because the Finns and Estonians can understand each other I’m sure Ranzo and Nora have no lingual problems. Of course, they can also growl in ‘Austrian’ when necessary! 🙂 I know they speak German in Austria but I call the language ‘Austrian’ …..

Ranzo, come on – jump into the water and play with me!

Naturally, Nora’s wish is Ranzo’s command!!

May I kiss your ear, gnädige Fräulein?

When Ranzo shakes off the water of his fur Nora gets a nice shower.

My big brother really is big – just like our father Manasse!

Ranzo is a Finnish Viking and I’m sure Nore couldn’t have found a more gorgeous boyfriend!

It’s easy to see that the big bear is deeply in love with the beautiful Nora.

Nora may be smaller but she certainly has a mind of her own and isn’t afraid of expressing herself loud and clear. Oh bear, her mouth is almost as big as Ranzo’s …. 🙂

Nora, aren’t you forgetting that I’m the King of this enclosure?

Ranzo, you may be the King but, please, bear in mind that I’m the Queen. Your head is bigger than mine but I’m the one who turnes it, hehehee …. 🙂

I don’t think Ranzo minds if Nora gets a bit bossy sometimes. 🙂

The look of love. Aren’t they sweet together!!

Of course, Ranzo and Nora also spend a lot of thime playing with their toys.

The pink thing  matches Nora’s white, fluffy fur so well.

Evi from Tallinn sent some toys to Nora and it’s obvious they are very much appreciated!

Nora shares her toys generously with Ranzo.

Finally a couple of close-up of the adorable polar bears in Vienna.

I’m very proud of my big brother and I’m very happy when he’s happy! They say I’m going to be as handsome as he is ….. I’m looking forward to growing up!

I hope that one day in the future there will be sweet photos of me and nice polar bear girl ….

I’m not telling you which girl I have in mind but maybe I can reveal that her name begins with the letter ‘Q’.

Nora, Ranzo and I wish all the readers of Knuti’s Weekly a very pleasant Spring time.

  1. Liebe Mervi,
    Sisu hat noch etwas Zeit um jetzt schon an ein Eisbärmädchen zu denken, die Auswahl ist groß und
    es warten einige Mädels ausfso einen feschen Jungbär.
    Nora und Ranzo verstehen sich prächtig und der Tausch war das Richtige.
    Vielen Dank an Jutta und Marko für die schönen Bilder und Mervi für die passenden Texte von Sisu.
    Liebe Grüße Moni K

  2. Dear Mervi!
    Ranzo looks very huge next to Nora, but a young girl is not afraid of him. It is great!
    Sisu can wait a bit till he will get a girl friend 🙂
    Hugs
    Ludmila

  3. Dear Mervi,

    I’m very happy that Nora, who grew up in poor conditions, got such a great new home with so nice boyfriend! She deserves it all.
    Only a few months ago no one could have thought, that everything would be that case.
    Nora and Ranzo are a really beautiful couple: Nora is small and tender, Ranzo is big and strong …
    Ranzo seems to be holding Nora very much…and how he looks at her…
    I wish the bears all the best! I will visit them soon.

    With greetings
    Evi from Tallinn

  4. Dear Mervi, Jutta and Marko
    The combination of Mervi’s words and your pictures makes this a magical story of Polar Bears. The beauty and intelligence of the Polar Bear is clear for all to see.
    We know of course that there are seasons in Polar Bear life and that sometimes the passionate play of Spring can give way to a cooler relationships in Summer. If Nora thinks she is carrying a cub Ranzo will be given a frosty reception. But for the time being the two show how passionate these big bears can be.
    As for little Sisu, his time will come sooner than he thinks.

  5. Liebe Mervi,

    du hast dem Liebespaar in Wien wieder wunderbare und witzige Kommentare in den
    Bärenmund gelegt, das macht richtig Spaß – ….Your head is bigger than mine but I’m the one who turnes it, hehehee …. Ich liebe deinen Humor!

    Vielen Dank Jutta Kirchner für die tollen Fotos und ja, das wird eine Lovestory!

    Und wovon unser kleiner SISU schwärmt, ist ein offenes Geheimnis – früh übt sich, wer ein Schwerenöter werden will….

    Herzlichen Dank Mervi und liebe Grüße!
    Britta-Gudrun

  6. TERVE! to RANUA and to VIENNA

    Von so viel geballter Schönheit u n d Lieblichkeit ist man geradezu geblendet!

    Ich bin sicher, nicht nur Mervi aus Schweden/FINNLAND und Teddybärenmutt aus FINNLANDi, sondern auch Evi aus ESTLAND platzen nun geradezu vor Freude und Stolz.

    NORA aus Tallinn ist in der Tat eine entzückende kleine Braut und Ranzo ist ein beachtlich großer und beeindruckender EisbärenMann geworden. Hoffentlich geht alles gut, wenn’s zur Paarung kommt und der Große erdrückt die hübsche Kleine nicht vor lauter Liebe und Zuneigung!

    SISU, super, dass Du Dir alle Deine möglichen Informationsquellen ‘warm’ hältst und dass Du so auch immer bestens über Deinen großen Bruder unterrichtet bist und auch uns alles erfahren lässt, was Dir zu Ohren kommt. Deine Auntie Mervie findet ja immer die richtigen Worte, um alles an uns weiterzugeben.

  7. Oh ja, liebe/r SISU vielen Dank, dass Du mich erinneert hast:

    Unbedingt erwähnt werden müssen natürlich die Klasse-Fotografen
    Jutta KIRCHNER und Marko JUNTTILA (der mit dem Weiß-Weiß bestimmt so seine liebe Not hat . . .)

  8. “Q” !? – No idea who you might have in mind little big ‘Ranzo-BROTHER’
    (so it seems sure now that you are a BOY . . .!?)

  9. Liebe Mervi, liebe Jutta

    Das sind tolle Fotos von verliebten Bären.
    Da haben sich zwei gefunden und ver-
    stehen sich prächtig. Danke für die
    schönen Bilder, auch an Marko.

    Herzliche Grüße
    Chris 🙂

  10. Dear Mervi!

    This is a wonderful story and very nice Photos. The both bears are a fine couple.
    Thank you very much!
    Hugs

  11. Dear Mervi!
    Thank you for bringing us this delightful story and the wonderful pics of this gorgeous polar bear love couple by Jutta Kirchner. I loved those games on water and the close-ups!
    Thanx to Marko too for his snowy portraits of Sisu who is already dreaming of a girlfriend, somewhat too early in my opinion.

    I would like to join the previous writers: both of the polar bears in Vienna look just marvellous and it´s quite obvious they fell in love with each other.
    They are having spring feelings for sure. Hopefully these feelings will last for a while!

    Hugs
    Anke

  12. Liebe Mervi!

    Was für ein tolles Pärchen, man merkt, wie es beiden beiden knistert. Danke für die wunderbaren Bilder.

    Liebe Grüße, Erika

  13. Liebe Mervi,

    na wenn da keine Frühlingsgefühle im Spiel sind.
    Es ist so schön anzusehen, wie super sich Ranzo und Nora inzwischen verstehen. Sie sind ein schönes Paar.

    Monika

  16. No, morjens Sisu ja mutsis Venus!

    Kyl maar snää nyt oikke panki räjäyti. Et tommosi rakkaure kuvi läheti. Kyl sil sun isoveljelläs mene ny luja.
    Ook sä ollenka ajatellu, et snuus voi tulla koht setä? Pääseks oikke kummiks? Ei ny puhuta semmosit kummeist, vaa semmosit toisenlaisist kummeist. Kyl sunst varmast tule oikke hyvä kummi.
    On siit su veljestäs vaa tullu komia miäs, nokkakin on vähintäinki yht komia ku isävainaall.Oleks kattonu peili, kui on sun nokkas kohrall?
    Kerro ny sill mutsilles tervauksi. Ne vissi hakee sill uust miäst, ett snää ja Ranzo saatte sitte niit velipuali.
    Voikatte hyvi

  17. Dear Sisu, one thing is for sure: Ranzo is a white giant and apparently a gentle one with regard to Nora. The size difference is really astonishing. And it is good to see that they fit well together.
