Terve! Hello! I guess many of you are dreaming of a white Christmas. Here in Ranua we don’t have to dream – the Winter Wonderland is reality for us!

I hope you can find me in the snow! What luck I have my licorice coloured eyes and nose as ‘guiding stars’!

A day before the first Advent there were lots of activities going on in Ranua. Sisu and Venus were making sure everything was ready for their special guests – Giovanna and Quintana who were due to come next day.

Terve! Hello, friends! Oh bear, we certainly have a real Winter Wonderland here in Ranua! After the photos in this report were taken it has been snowing heavily and we’ve got no less than 30 centimeters more snow! How about that!!

Terve! Hello! Servus! In my last report I told you we have snow and thin ice. Now I’m glad to inform you that the ice is – in most parts – thick enough to carry my weight! Oh bear, that’s so wonderful!

Follow me and I show you what I can do on the ice.



Hurray! The Winter has arrived in Ranua!

Hello again! This time I have really exciting news for you! It’s been snowing a lot and the ground in our enclosure is covered with the white stuff! Even our pool has frozen but the ice is still too thin to carry my weight. The Winter is here! The two legged creatures are not as happy as mama and I but we don’t let it bother us! We just enjoy!

Hello again, dear friends! It’s me – your pal Sisu calling from Ranua! We have no snow yet but it’s only a matter of days when the first snow flakes will fall. I’m really looking forward to feeling the soft stuff on my nose.

Terveisiä Ranualta! Sisu-poikahan se täällä taas kirjoittelee. No, Mervi auttoi minua vähän. Minun tassuni ovat vähän liian suuret naputtelemaan tekstiä.

Greetings from Ranua! It’s me – your Sisu boy writing again. Well, I did it with a little help from Mervi because it’s not easy to type with my big paws.
