Terve! Hello! Servus!
In Ranua we still have Winter. Last year we had snow even in June - it remains to be seen if this Winter will last as long. Well, I'm not complaining - this is perfect for mama and me!
A gentle morning hug is a MUST! The two legged creatures want coffee in the morning - I want to be hugged by my mama.
You must agree this is a perfect start of a good day!
I'm a big boy now but mama's milk bar is still my favourite 'diner' as you may notice in this photo.
We've been a little worried about my brother Ranzo because his girlfriend Lynn has moved to Copenhagen. We sincerely hope he's not too sad and upset. Soon he will meet sweet Nora and we wish them a happy life together. I myself am dreaming of a certain polar bear girl in Bavaria. Can you guess who it is? :-)
I'm a very sporty kind of guy so I'm in a very good condition. Because I wish well being for you, too, I decided to be your bearsonal trainer. Isn't that a brilliant idea?!
My fees are very reasonable. A salmon for one hour! I can even offer an annual card for two salmons and three pumpkins. Mind you, I mean big pumpkins!
Well, what are we waiting for? Let's start the work out!
Try to touch your hind legs with your front paws. Translated to 'humanish': Try to touch your toes with your finger tips.
It may not be so easy but I'm sure you will succeed.
Touch your left hind leg with your right front paw and then do the opposite ....
Repeat the exercises for some minutes ....
..... and finish the work-out session with relaxing stretching. Well done!
I'll be more than happy to be your bearsonal trainer. Maybe my keepers will be surprised when they see my 'clients' doing all the exercises outside our enclosure .... :-)
Mama, wait - don't you want to be my first client?
Oh bear, she's so lazy!!! She just started lying there like a polar bear .... hmmm, on second thought she IS a polar bear, hehehe ....
Oh well, here I am waiting for a long queue of visitors who want to have me as their bearsonal trainer.
While I'm waiting I'm letting my tongue do some stretching, too!
Finally a couple of close-ups of my face
Oh no, this owl has a nerv trying to steal the show!!! OK, it looks quite cute so I'm not angry.
Mervi always says that seeing photos of me brightens up her day. I hope they brighten up your day, too!
Best greetings from your pal Sisu
