Wolodja didn’t want to wet his paws

As we know Wolodja is a playing kind of fellow and loves to get new enrichment. It looks like he has smelled something ….


…. and now he even sees something.


A bucket is floating towards him.


Being patient is rewarding! Why wet the paws if you can catch the bucket with your teeth? 🙂


You must agree that our Wolli looks very pleased with himself.

Am I clever or am I clever? 🙂 Patience is the mother of all virtues!!

  1. Dear Mervi!
    Though Wolodja is quite dirty he looks great! Besides he is a clever guy who knows exactly what he wants and how to get it. Taking a bath was obviously not his cup of tea… 😉
    It seems that he gained some weight in the Netherlands which I appreciate. He looks much better than in Berlin lately!
    Thank you for the update!

    Take care in these contaminated – with whatever – times…

  2. Ich freue mich,
    dass es Herthas
    Papa gut geht.

    Fotos ! 🙂

  3. Dear Nel, dear Mervi!
    Thank you for the news about Wolodja. On the sunny day he smelt surely the Spring.

  4. Liebe Mervi,

    Wolodja sieht gut aus und und zum Baden wartet er noch auf höhere Temperaturen.
    Er ist ein cleverer BĂ€r, und auch in seiner neuen Heimat scheint er sehr relaxed zu sein – gut so !

    Dir und Nel vielen Dank und liebe GrĂŒĂŸe

  5. Dear Nell and Mervi
