Spring Training!!

Spring Training has begun for America's Pastime (and MY favorite sport), BASEBALL!!!  And like a good mom, I encourage my babies to become sports fans like me!  So, Bruno is showing his support by taking comfort with his new baseball "binky."  After his many warm bottles of milk, he typically falls asleep sucking on his trendy pacifier.....and its SOOOOOOO cute!  On that note, I haven't watched any baseball yet this year because I have been prepping and prepping all of the animals for a stellar showing in Monument Valley!!!  We are leaving dark & early on Sunday and the show begins on March 31st!  For those of you who are going, I look forward to seeing you there, and for those who are not, you will be missed!  Hopefully, I'll be able to keep everyone posted while we're there!!!  Wish us luck!  See you

Monument Valley is coming up!!!

This year's T-shirt design

Monument Valley is upon us!  The days have been filled with nonstop prep to ensure we are READY completely!  I have been working very hard on the animals (acclimation, training, behavior, health, etc...)  Jay, Jesse, Kathleen, Cassie, and even Kim have been working extremely hard on all of the rest!  (Which is A LOT)  We are excited and anxious for the trip.  It is truly going to be a once in a lifetime experience for us, for you, and of course for the animals.  I look forward to seeing the results of everyone's hard work transpire into photos, video, and even artwork.  At this point, I can only imagine just how amazing it will all turn out. 

We will also be selling T-shirts as keepsakes from this year's event.  Above is the design (created by Jeff Schiefelbein;  We will have short sleeves and long sleeves available in white, ash grey, and black.  There will be a limited amount available, but special orders can be arranged upon request.  

Well, the count down has officially begun....12 days until we depart and make the 1000 mile drive with 15 animals in tow.  Wish us luck & we will see you there!!!

Meet Bruno! He's unBEARably cute!

Bruno; born January 16, 2012  Weight: 6.9 lbs
Thumb sucker???
Enjoys falling asleep in the
laps of his caretakers

Brown bear claws can measure up to about 2" - 4"
Meet the newest member of the Triple D family!!  His name is "Bruno", which is the international word for brown.  It suits him perfectly!  Bruno took a long road trip across the country with Jay and is finally at his forever home here in Kalispell, MT.  He is settling in nicely.  He is enjoying all of the attention he is getting from all of the staff, too!

Bruno, as of today, weighs 6.9 lbs and is just beginning to get his baby teeth in.  Although, his claws as you can see are ALREADY quite large!  Speaking of size, his father is quite large (about 800 lbs), so we can only imagine just how big little Bruno will become!

The Triple D has big plans and high hopes for his professional career, and with a name like Bruno, he is surely destined for stardom!

Our summer and fall filming slots are filling up fast, so don't forget to make your reservations and secure your spot to see little Bruno in person.....he won't stay small for very long!!!

Stay tuned for more news, pictures, and updates on Bruno & all of our amazing animals!
