Terve! Hello! Greetings from the hot Ranua! Because of the heat I’m spending most of my time in the water. This is a good chance to tell the big ball who’s the boss in this pool!


You must admit my back stroke exercises are simply brilliant.


Although I’m a modest kind of polar bear boy I can’t help being very proud.


I think I will soon need an even bigger ball ….


Just floating in the water is very relaxing. I sometimes take short naps, too …..


Now it’s time to present some of my friends.

Her royal featherness the swan


Our fox has a beautifully coloured fur.


The Siberian deers have a very nice enclosure. Well, it’s rather a little forest. No wonder this one looks very satisfied.


This dhole by the pool is wondering if he should take a swimming tour or not.


The water is, of course, very wet but on the other hand the weather is very hot ….


… so he decided to jump in! 🙂


Following a good example?


At least the paws were in the water! 🙂


Agent 007 ½ told me he’s been working under cover during the last few weeks ….


…. but I got suspicious when I saw he was making himself presentable.


And I was right! The sly rascal has been dating a beautiful wolverine girl! Maybe she’s Miss Moneypenny … 🙂


I hope they’ll be happy together! Hmm, watching these two made me think it might be nice to have girlfriend.


Peek-a-poo! Can you guess who I am?


I’m Jemma! I love to play hide and seek with the visitors – and even the keepers who very often wonder where I am.


That’s it from Ranua this time but I hope Marko will come soon and take nice photos of me and my friends. Have a pleasant August despite the heat. As Mervi often says: Stay chilly – Be cool! 🙂

  1. Sisu, natürlich bekommst du wieder die Bestnote mit 10.0 für deine großartigen Ballkünste!

    Das kühle Wasser ist bei der jetzigen Hitze das beliebteste Element, das wissen auch die hübschen Rothunde.
    Jemma hat sich klugerweise einen Sonnenschirm aus Farn ausgesucht und Agent 007 1/2 scheint seinen Beziehungsstatus auszubauen. Dem lieben SISU wünsche ich von ganzem Herzen bald eine nette Freundin!

    Liebe Grüße, fleißige Mervi von

  2. Dear Mervi and Marko
    The last scene with 007 and his new friend does indeed remind me of Bond chattinng with Missh Moneypenny as Sean Connery pronounced it.
    Sisu can make Daniel Craig eat his heart out with those water scenes!

  3. Terve! . . . A report/letter starting with the big white happy polar bear boy and his big grey enrichment ball is a right Monday-joy to me. Thank you!

    Congratulations and best wishes to the ‘Agent 7+1/2’-couple. Have a wonderful and long lasting honey moon, you new love birds in RANUA. . . . . My fingers are crossed that also you, dear SISU, will find YOUR love somehow somewhere (best would be in RANUA!) when you start to look for other occupations/enrichment activities than provoking your most loved (for the time being . . ) pal so far, the GREY BALL . . .

    Hi JEMMA, also you look more than lovely in the soft lilac flower sea!

    Also your other buddies were again taken best into photos by Marko Junttila and your best human friend/godmother outside of Ranua, dear anuntie Mervi, found the fittting titles for each and any of them.

    THANKS to all of you – and – please come a little closer: we virtually forget all about Corona for a sec! – such I can let you have a full KNUTi-style hug 😉 )

  4. Yes, it’s really hot right now, dear Sisu.
    And the best thing is to stay in the water with this heat.

    Your backstrokes are simply world champions!!

    Your friends are doing it right. They are on or in the cool water.

    Thanks for the refreshing news from Ranua!!!


  5. Thank you for the nice report, Sisu. It looks like you are having fun in the pool. I hope it cools down soon for you.

    You have lovely neighbors.


  6. Dear Mervi and Marko!
    Your pleasant report proves that the animals in Orsa are spending summertime to their taste.
    Sisu can amuse himself and cool down in his pool the same time. Even the dholes who are normally afraid of water use the possibility to wet their feet and refresh themselves in their ditch during the current heat wave…
    The little fox is a beauty and the deer seemed to come from a fairy tale book. Both look gorgeous.
    Sweet Jemma is the queen in her own secret garden with beautiful flowers.

    But the hottest news comes from my dear agent 007 1/2. He´s got a girlfriend now and I wish him and this poor girl a wonderful summer of love… but I would suggest in times of “Me Too” Mr. Wolverine, James Wolverine should be kind and decent and not behave like the two-legged secret agents in James Bond movies…
    Girls nowadays might be quite powerful…

    All the best

  7. Of course I meant Ranua!


  8. Dear Marko and Mervi!
    Thank you for the wonderful pictures from Ranua.
    Sisu has a very good ball in the rigth size for the polar bear boy. The dholes are beautiful.
    I hope the wolverines will get the cute babies.

  9. Liebe Mervi und lieber Marko,
    Sisu zeigt sich perfekt an seinem großen Ball.
    Hitze auch in Finnland und natürlich suchen alle Tiere erfrischung im Wasser.
    Agent 007 und Miss Moneypenny, das sind tolle Bilder.
    Jemma ist eine Bärenschönheit und ich habe mich sehr gefreut sie wieder zu sehen.
    Schöne Bilder aus dem Zoo in Ranua, vielen Dank und ich freue mich auf mehr!
    Liebe Grüße Moni K

  10. Lieber Sisu!
