Do you remember Aina – the little orphaned brown bear cub that was brought to Sulo Karjalainen? Now Aina has grown a lot. The other brownies are already hibernating and maybe Aina has retired, too, when I’m writing this.


However, before the long nap Aina was frolicking in the first snow that fell in Kuusamo ……. she walked, she ran, she rolled, she jumped …..

Sulo’s walking canes were ‘attacked’, too. ­čÖé



While Sulo had a little coffee break Aina kept herself busy.



Finally it was time to star walking back home again.


In this wonderful video you can see a very happy Aina enjoying the snow.

  1. Dear Mervi!
    I’m happy for Sulo that he can raise another lively bear cub with Aina and be infected by her joie de vivre.
    She really knows how to have fun in the snow.
    I just hope it won’t be too exhausting for him, since she’s such a wild thing….
    When I see her exuberant hops in the video, I wish I still had that much energy…
    Thank you for sharing!


    Liebe Mervi!
    Ich freue mich f├╝r Sulo, dass er mit Aina ein weiteres munteres B├Ąrenkind aufziehen und sich von ihrer Lebensfreude anstecken lassen kann. Sie wei├č, wie man Spa├č im Schnee hat.
    Ich hoffe nur, dass es f├╝r ihn nicht zu anstrengend wird, sie ist schon ein wilder Ratz….
    Wenn ich ihre ausgelassenen Spr├╝nge im Video sehe, w├╝nschte ich, ich h├Ątte auch noch so viel Energie….
    Danke f├╝rs Teilen!

    Liebe Gr├╝├če

  2. Liebe Mervi,

    ausser deinem Link kann man auch noch zwei andere sehenswerte Videos von dem j├╝ngeren B├Ąrchen sehen, das wirklich vor Lebens- und Spielfreude nur so spr├╝ht.

    Ja, der Eisb├Ąrenvater ist alt geworden. Den Unterschied sieht man sehr deutlich zwischen dem Wintervideo zu dem im Fr├╝hsommer. Hoffen wir, dass er sich ├╝bernimmt, aber er hat ja auch viele Helfer um sich, wie man in den anderen Videos sieht, wo auch der K├╝nstlerb├Ąr sich schon seine Winterh├Âhle miit viel Holzwolle herrichtet.

    Danke Mervi f├╝r das sch├Âne Upadate aus Kuusamo!

  3. Dear Mervi,
    I am very Grad that Sulo is able to care about Aina. It is great to watch them both in the snow

  4. Dear Mervi
    Thank you for these pictures and video of
    Silo and Aina together.

  5. Dear Mervi, I already wrote it many times before, but the updates of Sulo and his bears are my absolute favorites. I wish this man a very long and healthy life so that we all can enjoy his adventures. And OJEE, Aina became a little bear with nice curves, no? But most of all, she is having a lot of energy. I wonder whether she will hibernate this Winter. Sometimes, orphaned cubs do not do this during their first Winter.

  6. how sweet Aina, when I see her I remember a little happy girl, all is there for the brown bear girl, wonderful snow,, twigs of trees and the good friend Sulo, who will give her later good food, what does she need more, her little world is perfect, so it could be for a loooong time. I send many good wishes to Sulo and Aina for a cosy wintertime.
    dear Mervi, thank you
    dear greetings
