One last outfit for Babette!

I hope you all had as much fun taking these pictures of Babette as she trotted around the globe these last few weeks, as I did looking at them.  Sometimes I laughed so loud I scared Mehitabel!  I could swear that she (Babette) had different expressions on her face depending on where she was and what she was doing.  But that’s not possible….is it?

Anyway, despite the fact she has been behaving like a jet setting panda these last few weeks, let us not forget that she has a very serious mission in life, and that is as founder and director for the Hospital for Indigent Pandas, located in Greenbank, WA.  The hospital also hosts the Stuffy Panda Rescue Foundation, which is headquartered in Langley, WA.

So here is her nurse’s outfit, which is a replication of the outfit the the actual Babette de Panda wore when taking care of her good friend Victory!

And remember, Virginia, there IS a “Babette de Panda“!  Next week, we will announce the winners of the first ever “Where in the world is Babette de Panda?” photo contest!  stay tuned!

Babette at the Beach!

Beach bikini babette

We can’t thank new panda friend Sylvia C. enough for sending these photos of Babette taking a well earned mini-holiday at the southern California coast.  All that rain, wind, and foul weather just gets a panda down, don’t ‘cha know?  Babette is wearing a stunning blue and yellow polka dot bikini…not quite teensy weensy, because, well, let’s not go there OK?

babette and sand castle

As you can see here, it’s not all play and no work!  Babette has designed and built a sand castle model of the new wing of the Hospital for Indigent Pandas.  As you know, Babette founded this hospital in Greenbank WA, and spends many hours selflessly  tending to pandas with her tender touch.  (Her nurses outfit will be showing up any day now, to add to her wardrobe!)

babette in tide pool

Here we see Babette, examining some tide pool life.  In addition to her hospital work, Babette also has a degree in Marine Biology.  Or was it that she went to a sushi bar once? Whatever.  Soon Babette will be winging her way back to the frozen north, so that she can model her new ski ensemble!

Be the Bear!

PS…no, I don’t know why she went off to California without me.
