Ciao amici! Hihii … I speak quite fluent Italian nowadays. Wow, what a winter we’ve had. La Donna and I are so glad it lasted so long this time. Hopefully it will come again in December! A white 4th birthday would be something special don’t you agree?


It’s so fun to play detective games in the snow. You never know what you will find.


You just have to dig deep enough….


and there it is – a toy you thought had disappeared just like the birthday cakes delivered by me.


Should I share this?


Just a little moment by myself and then it’s Giovanna’s turn.



A nice pose for the knutographers


A little stretching




It’s mine! – No, it’s mine! Hehe … a family argument…..


Oh well, I let her have some fun. Soon she wants to go swimming anyway. I just stand here and try to catch the snow flakes falling down.


Has she gone?


This is my special kind of ice cream!


I really am the king of innovations!


Spring is soon here and of course, it has it’s charm, but Winter is my season.


I like this photo. You must admit I look very cute. I think I’ll frame it and hang it on the wall in my cave. When I want to cool off on a hot summer day I just take a look at this picture….

I wish you all a great spring time and I’m looking forward to meeting many of you during Easter holidays.

Your pal Knuti

  1. I had to make a loong search lately for a photo of the ‘green triple-bowl-Aussidog-Toy’ before I finally found a single one – And here I could have found plenty of beautiful photos of it! Obviously I didn’t dig deep enough;-)

    Thanks for having digged out those great photographs of KNUTi-boy with his favorite toy made by Leena P
    BTW: Are you still in contact with her? It would be nic to see/read her here also personally again once in a while . . .

    BTW: The ‘HiHii’ reminds also Frühlingsstern 😉 . . And it’s so good that again also GIOVANNA ‘makes part of the game’ . . .

    Thanks, dear Mervi, for this uplifting contribution to celebrate KNUT’s monthly birthday.

  2. Dear Mervi
    Thank you for posting these pictures of Knut and Giovanna from 2010.
    We now know that this was a very special time for us and Knut.
    The time in the early part of the year when male and female Polar Bears spend the closest time together. A year later Knut had met his mother Tosca again and they were getting to know each other.
    Knut’s childhood came to a close all too soon.
    So the months with Giovanna were a golden time.

    Ten years later and Giovanna is still beautiful and playful

  4. Dear Mervi

    What an enchanting story !!!
    Thank you so much!


  5. Dear Mervi!
    It is a wonderful story from the happy time. Knut and Giovanna had the snow. Knut played with his favorite toys.

  6. Thank you very much dear Mervi and LeenaP.
    Wonderful story.
    Dear Knuti, we love you so much. We miss you.

  7. Dear Mervi!
    These pictures touch me deeply. I am very glad that Knut also experienced good times, e.g. real winters with snow and ice, that he learned polar bearish from Giovanna and was able to make friends with her.
    These are really precious memories!
    Thank you for taking us along the memory lane again!


  8. Liebe Mervi,

    nun habe ich tatsächlich einmal den Gedenktag verpasst und sehe auch diesen Eintrag von Leena P das erste Mal. Knut im Schnee und mit Giovanna waren wohl seine glücklichsten Zeiten, denke ich.

    Liebe Grüße und danke für die Erinnerung!

  9. dear Mervi,
    I am glad that Knut had that nice time with Giovanna, LeenaP took wonderful pictures
    thank you so much for publishing again here.
    dear greetings and big paw waves
