Knut potpourri by Gudrun

5.5.2020-  Photos by Gudrun, Collage by Dumba

In this ‘corona time’ we need to see cute photos and what could be cuter than our magic bear Knut! I’m sure these photos will bring back many sweet memories.

I never forget my first sight of Knut. He was lying peacefully in his mulch bed and, of course, it was a lovely sight.

I’m sure Knut was always aware of the visitors and I loved the way he seemed to look straight to my eyes.

Doing his bed even more comfortable ….

….. and he didn’t forget the yoga exercises either.

The jute sack was his faithful companion.

All we have left now of Knut and his little enclosure are memories …. but oh, what wonderful memories!

Dumba’s tribute to Knut

  1. Dear GUDRUN and MERVI – With your May-2020-memory-collection of KNUT-pics you bring back all those special feelings when we appraoched his enclosure, when we caught the first glance of him, when we observed him making antics, waiting or begging, caring about his ‘make-up’, or simply sleeping or ‘friemeling’ with a twig (especially whenn he was already tired and used only his claws very elegantly ­čÖé

    I love each and any of the above KNUT-photos – may be most the one under the comment:

    “IÔÇÖm sure Knut was always aware of the visitors and I loved the way he seemed to look straight to my eyes.”

    Thank you very much

  2. Liebe Mervi,

    Knut hatte wie kaum ein anderes Tier im Zoo einen sehr intensiven Kontakt zu seinen Besuchern,
    weil er schon durch die Aufzucht von Thomas D├Ârflein stark auf den Menschen gepr├Ągt war.
    Seine gro├čartiges “Ballspiel” mit dem Publikum beherrschte er wie kaum ein anderer B├Ąr.

    Seine vielf├Ąltigen Stimmungen sind in Millionen von Fotos festgehalten und die auf seinem Mulchbett
    mag ich ganz besonders gerne.

    Vielen Dank f├╝r die Erinnerungen auch an Dich, liebe Dumba, f├╝r die sch├Âne Collage!

  3. Liebe Gudrun und Mervi!
    Danke f├╝r die sch├Ânen Erinnerungsfotos von Knut. Knut hat die Besucher registriert und sicherlich hat er die Bewunderung genossen. Ich kann mich sehr gut erinnern an unseren ersten besuch bei Knut.
    Liebe Dumba
    Deine Collage ist sch├Ân.

  4. Dear Gudrun, Dumba and Mervi
    Thank you for this very necessary tonic for the soul.
    The tradition of remembering Knut in the first week of every month is a fine one.
    For me, the journey from Tegel airport on the bus to see Knut was always the start of my holidays in Berlin. He was always worth wstching. Even when he was asleep, now and again an ear would flick.

  5. Thank you very much dear Mervi, Gudrun and Dumba.
    We love you so much dear Knuti. We will never forget you.

  7. Dear Mervi!
    Thank you for sharing these sweet memories of Knut and the good old days with us again.
    After so many years they appear as a beautiful dream…
