Zoological Bear

While Mama works, Sandy likes to listen to the radio and he was most excited to hear an advertisement for the Second Annual Teddy Bear Picnic at the Zoo!! Oh my goodness... a picnic just for little bears - that is very cool! After practicing his most petulant stare with Mama, Sandy finally got her to look up the picnic on the Zoo's website...
Yes!! There is a picnic at the Zoo and all bears (and their Mama's/Papa's) are invited. Except for one teeny-tiny glitch - the picnic is on August 11 & 12. Which doesn't work very well for Sandy... who is flying off to England on August 11 to meet Beanie Mouse. Ooohhh... sad little bear... dejected little bear... bedraggled and disappointed little bear.

But... the Calgary Herald newspaper does have a contest related to the Teddy Bear Picnic! A contest for little bears?? Yes... It is called the Best Bear Contest and there are all sorts of great prizes... including an annual pass to the zoo!
Sandy peered at the contest rules... wondering if he should enter...
Hmmm... the contest runs to August 8 - and Sandy could submit one photo per day... who knows... you don't know if you don't enter! So after much debate and deliberation, Sandy submitted a suitably appropriate picture for an Alberta contest...
A picture of Sandy with the provincial flower of Alberta! More deliberations required for the next 7 days for more photos and more submissions...


  1. Oh but we have something on the found-art blog that would cheer you up.....!!

  2. Enter, enter, enter Sandy! We hope you win the contest!

  3. @Beanie - Yes!! Thank you!! I won a bunch of cool stuff from Found Art Blog (

    @Jerry and Ben - Yup - and I submitted an entry yesterday too... you just never know!

  4. Looks like a fun prize. You are right, you just never know. I keep telling mom she needs to keep entering The Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes because you just never know, and you can't win if you don't try!
