Late one night, Ducky was sitting in the DtPb PI office snacking on some cookies in the dark, when all of a sudden there was a knock on the door. The noise startled Ducky but thankfully not enough for him to drop a cookie. Ducky adjusted his hat and said, “Come in.” As the door slowly creaked open, Ducky didn’t know what to expect. He wondered, would it be an aardvark with an adventure, a monkey with a mystery, or a rodent with a riddle?

When the door finally opened Ducky was surprized to find Ted huffing and puffing from opening that huge office door all by himself. Ted wanted to know if Ducky wanted to watch a movie together and eat some popcorn, while he manned the office. So they watched a movie and ate popcorn.

Permleton's Lab 7: Mercury

Mercury is the closest planet to the sun. It is called a terrestrial planet because it is mostly made of rock. Since the planet has almost no atmosphere it experiences extreme temperature fluctuations. One really cool things about Mercury is that the surface of the planet is covered in large and small craters from where thousands of meteors have struck the planet. Another strange thing about Mercury is that is year (the time it takes to travel around the sun) is shorter than its day (the time it takes for the planet to rotate around its axis).

Pembleton thinks Mercury is pretty cool! What do you think?

Earlier this week Ducky received word that his friend, Mr. Shnookums, had been picked up and put in to the pound again. Ducky knew he had to get him out, so he devised a top secret mission to get him out of the poky. Ducky, a master of disguises, donned his homemade puppy costume to go deep undercover.

Ducky allowed himself to be captured. As the Human was carrying him to the back to the vehicle, he unclipped his keys and tossed them to Pembleton.

Later that day, a cake was delivered to the pound right before closing hours. The cake was for a puppy named ‘Ducky’. The humans looked at all of the collars, and when they found the strange looking puppy with the name ‘Ducky’, they slipped the cake in to the cage. It took a lot of self control and will power to wait the 2 minutes it took for the staff to finally leave. Once the coast was clear, Ducky ate every last crumb, but thankfully did not eat the keys hidden inside. Then it was time to get to business.

Ducky unlocked his cage, then Mr. Shnookums’. He was about to leave, when he heard some whimpering. The other little guys were giving him sad puppy eye’s and he couldn’t leave them there. He had to help them all escape!

He unlocked every cage, even the ones with cats. And then they made a break for it. Thankfully Pembleton was waiting near buy with a van, that would take them to safety.

Within a couple of days, Ducky and Pembleton’s relocation agency had found loving homes for all the little guys, even the cats.

Ducky and the gang have been wanting to attend the ‘Animals Star Wars Conference’ for the past couple of years. This year, they finally got to go and it was AWESOME! Ducky and Ted attended a Jedi Leadership workshop, while Pembleton and Blizzard attended a robotics workshop. Their favorite part, was the keynote speaker, Chewbacca. They had no idea what he was saying, but they loved every minute. Plus they got to wear some pretty cool costumes.  They cannot wait until next year!

Recently Ducky and the gang went to Paris for a Lego conference. One evening, Ducky went on a stroll through the Parisian streets, looking for some snacks. He found some delicious cookies and a nice gelato stand near a park.

In the park, Ducky saw a strange fellow duck, who appeared to be trapped in an invisible box. When Ducky went over to help, the strange duck burst out of the invisible box and stanched Ducky’s cookie and his ice cream!

Ducky shouted, “Who are you and why did you take my snacks?”

But the strange duck’s only reply was a silent laugh and then a bite out of the cookie.

Ducky was sad, and confused. Why would someone be so mean? Then Ducky went back to the gelato stand and got another scoop of ice cream. This time, he would be more careful.

In response to the information from Ducky and the gang, the police came to arrest Captain One Mitten and Egor, but when they arrived the cages were empty. A thorough search of the premises revealed nothing. The camel cops radioed in their findings and returned home empty handed.
