Where IS Pinky anyway?

Bubba feels so bad about falling for another one of Pinky’s schemes. he’s such a good little panda and Pinky, well, Pinky has a lot of influence on him. Mommee Mei tries to explain to Bubba that the world is not a safe place for pandas out on their own.

And just who is Pinky with?


Well, who did you THINK she would enlist in her final attempt to stop Mittens the cat?

So we are getting very close to election day, and whatever views you hold, it’s important to take part and vote.  And if you’re having a hard time making up your mind…

Watch Pinky’s video one more time!

Resistance is Futile

One of my favorite lines in The Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is when some robot or other is running around yelling Resistance is Futile and Arthur Dent and Ford Prefect are doing everything they can to resist, to no avail. It’s kind of like that when Mommee Mei turns her laser sharp gaze on Bubba, in order to make him spill the beans. The Vogons have nothing on Mommee when it comes to wielding power.

Did you really think Bubba would be able to resist telling all he knows?

All Mei Xiang has to do it look stern and…

Be sure to tune in this Friday for part 2 of A Halloween Carol!

The Great Escape

One of the things I love about Pinky is that she always has a plan. If one plan crashes against an immovable object (say, Mommee, for instance) Pinky always has plan B, C, D, or Z at the ready! And there has never been a den that she could not escape from. Bubba, you still have much to learn from Pinky!

And now, The Great Escape!

The Great Escape

Of COURSE Pinky has a secret tunnel!

Pinky never ceases to amaze!

Are you enjoying A Halloween Carol? Be sure to tune in Friday for part 2! And while this story has not yet appeared in print, did you know there are SIX Panda Chronicle books available to have for your very own? yep, that’s right! You can get them here!

The Long Paw of the Law

Wait. Just. A. Minute. BUBBA gets grounded???? Bubba is the GOOD panda! Bubba is the SWEET panda! Bubba is his momma’s darling boy! Bubba is not Pinky! But Pinky has taught him well, don’t you think? The law of Mom applies to all pandas equally, or so it seems. Oh, the injustice of it all!

I can’t believe that BUBBA has been grounded!!!!

The long paw of the law

I don’t think this is entirely fair!

and don’t call mee Boo Boo!

Don’t forget! This Friday The Panda Chronicles presents part 1 of A Halloween Carol! Huzzah! Get your popcorn ready!

The Jig is Up

Roh Roh. What did I tell you last week about the all seeing eyes of Mommee Mei? It seems that those panda cams have more than one application and now, now the jig is up and the heavy paw of the law is about to descend on Pinky AND Bubba. This is not good. This is not good at all!!

What should Pinky and Bubba do NOW?????

the jig is up

I don’t think Mei is buying the homework thing.

Bubba does have that extremely innocent look down, doesn’t he? I think Pinky taught it to him.

I hope you’ll keep reading The Panda Chronicles, because coming up for the next two FABULOUS FURRY FRIDAYS we have a special treat! An encore presentation (in two parts) of our Halloween classic (well, we can declare it a classic, can’t we?) A Halloween Carol! As I am not one to deny myself the pleasure of laughing at my own jokes, I have to say this story is a hoot, not to mention Bubba’s first feature presentation. All your favorite pandas have a role in this holiday drama, so be sure to tune in this Friday for some spooky panda fun.

Sibling Cooperation

Mei Xiang should be so pleased and proud! The level of sibling cooperation between Pinky and Bubba has reached an all time pinnacle! And Bubba is getting so smart about the cyber! heh! As a veteran of a number of Kickstarter campaigns, I think Bubba is very well prepared and has thought things through really well.

Well, he thought of everything except the all seeing eye of Mommee!

Will Bubba’s clever plan succeed while eluding Mommee’s watchful eye?

Bubba is such a smart little panda

And thanks to the wonderful world of useless information that makes up the internet, I have learned that today is Take your Teddy Bear to Work Day! Really! Cordelia’s mom: get Teddy Rosalie ready for a day at the office!

Bubba: Junior Computer Whiz

Bubba has now turned a whole year old! He is such a smart little panda, but we never knew how smart he has become until now, what with Pinky occupying everyone’s attention. But as it turns out, that Bubba is quite the junior computer whiz kid. Takes after his sister, no doubt, as she was the one who learned how to hack into the traffic control around Zoo Cublanta at a very early age. (Pinky: that evidence is entirely CIRCUMSTANTIAL! I admit to nothing!)


Bubba has a cunning plan and he is putting it into action!

When did Bubba get to be so smart!

Has anyone noticed how gray Mei Xiang’s fur is starting to turn?

More Panda News!!!!

The Wahington State Panda Foundation (Heretofore known as WASPaF) is moving forward with meetings in China and site visits by the Chinese panda procurement people in their quest (a noble and brilliant one I might add) to bring pandas to Washington state. (Our motto: bring pandas to the OTHER Washington) News stories on TV and radio and newspapers report that the potential homes for the pandas, The Point Defiance Zoo in Tacoma, and the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle (WOOZPPAH!) are saying, “hey! No one asked US if we wanted pandas!”

To that I sayFie! Of COURSE you want pandas! Everyone wants pandas!!! And for those who say:

A)” the money could be better spent elsewhere”, I say, ” well of COURSE it could, but we’re talking about PANDAS here!!!!!!


B) the “I thnk all wild animals should be wild and free and not locked up in zoos” people should visit a modern zoo sometime. Do I think pandas should be in the wild? Hell yes, just as soon as you restore the millions of square miles of their habitat that no longer exisits. A green pea in a 10 gallon bucket doesn’t begin to represent the ratio of lost habitat to the present panda habitat remaining.

They are doing the best they can to keep pandas from becomming extinct and return some to the wild. But that is a topic for another day!

For now, I just say, WOOZPPAH,

Bubba Has a Cunning Plan

Oh Pinky! You have taught your baby brother well! He has come up with a cunning plan to help you raise money for your campaign and maybe it will take you all the way to the Pink House! And what luck! You already have a video you can use!

Pinky’s campaign video!

A few weeks ago, I thought of a great idea for a Kickstarter campaign: Build a wall around Donald Trump! I thought it had great potential, but then realized, while it would be fun, I have far too much other work to do and Kickstarter campaigns are a lot of work. So instead, I thought that Pinky and Bubba would enjoy the experience!

cunning plan

Pinky has taught you well, Bubba!

Stay tuned as Pinky and Bubba team up to defeat Mittens the Cat!

Bear and Breakfast 3

Isn’t it nice to see Pinky and Bubba getting along so well? Aren’t you proud of Pinky for including her little brother in her activities? Don’t you want to go stay at her Bear and Breakfast vacation spot? It’s really quite reasonable considering you get to spend a night with an icon! It’s only…um…$25,000 a night, after all, and she has some of those nice fluffy bathrobes to wear!

Just remember, Mr. Bun belongs to Pinky so keep your paws off!

You knew Mommee was going to get angry, didn't you?

You knew Mommee was going to get angry, didn’t you? And besides…those are for the paying guests.

Bubba was just trying to be helpful!

We’re keeping an eye on the Cublanta Panda cam still! Hoping for news soon!

Bear and Breakfast 2


LUN LUN GAVE BIRTH TO TWINS ON SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 3RD and the US panda fans have gone wild, as you might imagine! Cub A was born at 7:20 AM and cub B was born at 8:07. So far, so good, but we are keeping our pseudo thumbs crossed that they are healthy. Panda cubs are really really really tiny and fragile. You can keep up to date on the zoo’s panda page here.

Here’s my earlier post about the panda watch:

I am intermittently watching the Zoo Cublanta panda cam, just in case Lun Lun pops out her cubs. She just kind of lying around, chewing on the odd piece of bamboo, not really serious breakfast eating, mind you, just because it’s something to do. Panda cubs are so tiny, you can’t tell if a panda is pregnant by looking at her. Sometimes the cubs don’t even show up on an ultrasound, but this time they did and they could see two. They must know what they were looking for, because it didn’t look like a panda to me.

But meanwhile, back at the Pinksonian National Zoo, Pinky is putting her plan into action with her brother’s help. Not that I expect she gave him much choice.

And now…Bear and Breakfast 2!

Pinky enlists her brother's help in her scheme

“Just run along and put these brochures where people will see them!”

What could possibly go wrong with this plan?

Um…I guess we’ll find out on Wednesday. Bwahahahaha!
