Cuter than a Teddy Bear

Cuter than a Teddy Bear

Alba is so much fun to visit! She's the busiest bear I’ve ever seen, and always seems to have a purpose to everything she does. As I watched her get no less 5 enrichment items out of her pool (some carried, some thrown, and a few as big as she is), I was wondering if I’d missed the sign that said I was just in time for the Alba Show. And some of those items were rolled back in, just to be taken out again. She gave some toys thoughtful consideration, like the bamboo that could have been a musical instrument, and the gourd that was studied before breaking into all the right pieces. Every now and then, she’d add a joyful little run around the exhibit to keep things interesting. Thanks for the smiles Alba! You are quite a clever girl!
