The Summer is almost over and we’re heading for the Fall so I thought in September we could celebrate our Knuti with some of my season collages – some of them you’ve probably seen already, some of them are new.

I’m sure none of us will ever forget the Summer 2007. It was the Summer of Knut and Thomas Dörflein! I remember how we waited every evening to see new photos – and our waiting was always richly rewarded.

To celebrate the 5th of June 2017 I chose to show you some photos by Gudrun from the Spring time in 2008 and 2009. Spring is the time of light and brightness and that’s exactly what the memories of Knut mean to us.

We’ve seen lots of heart warming photos of polar bear cubs and their mothers during the last months. That’s why I thought it would be suitable to walk in the memory lane and remember Knut as a cubbie with his very special ‘mother’.

Until the black Saturday – the 19th of March – we were happy having a beautiful, magic polar bear connecting people all over the world. Knut was so much loved by all of us but we were not allowed to have him more than 4 years and 4 months.

The following photos were taken by Gudrun on the 13t of March 2011 – only a few days before he had to leave us. Our boy was looking so good so it’s impossible to understand what happened.
