Pembleton woke everyone up early this morning and said, “We’re going on a hike.” Pembleton had already packed their backpacks with sandwiches, water, a map, and a compass. They spent the whole day going up hills, going down hills, over fields, and under thick forests. What a fun way to spend the day!

"Are we there yet?" -Ducky

Today, Ducky and the gang had a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Pizza (TMNT) Party. Wow! It was awesome! There was pizza and they dressed up like their favorite Ninja Turtles. Ducky originally wanted to have the party in the sewers, but luckily, Pembleton talked him out of it.

Tomorrow is a very sad day for Ducky. Last week, Ducky lost a very good friend to cancer and tomorrow he is going to her memorial service. He’s glad that Ted is going with him.

This post is dedicated to Dorothea Ramirez – Ducky’s grandma and #1 fan. We miss you!

We miss you!

We miss you!

On hot summer days, Ted likes to sneak away with an ice cream cone and daydream with a good book. How do you like to spend your summer days?

Ted sits under a tree reading a comic book, day dreaming, and eating ice cream.

Mmmm… peanut butter bear tracks!

Now, 201 Posts!

P.S. Congratulations to Germany for winning the World Cup. We tried to reach The Lambs for comment, but they were busy napping after a long night of celebrating.

Sorry it took us so long to update.The humans won’t quit traveling. All they do is work, work, work, and travel, travel, travel! We are finally back and ready for more ADVENTURES!

"I hope I'm not over the limit!"

“I hope I’m not over the limit!”

“Ladies and Gentlemen! I give you the Grubby Lil’ Paws!”

That’s what the announcer said when he introduced Ducky’s new band at a local music festival. Ducky is the singer, Banjo Bear plucks the banjo, Rusty the raccoon plays the jugs, Franky the elephant toots the harmonica, and Stink the skunk is always up for a DRUM SOLO! The performance went so well, they had to play an encore of “Empty Cookie Jar Blues”.

"I got the empty cookie jar blues!"

“I got the empty cookie jar blues!”

This morning, Ducky and the gang remembered the men and women who served in the US armed forces by visiting a Memorial Day parade.

After the parade, they went to a park. Ducky and the Lil’ Guys threw a football back and forth, while Pembleton roasted some corn on the cob. After lunch, Pembleton taught everyone how to do somersaults on the grass. It was a good day!

"Go loooong!"

“Go loooong!”

 

In Israel, cucumbers and pickles are BIG BUSINESS, and Ducky (always the entrepreneur) has been busy preparing a crop of grade-A “mel-ah-fe-FONE” (that’s Hebrew for cucumber). First he used his hoe to make the dirt really soft. Then he planted some cucumber vines. A few days later, some flowers started to bloom. After a few weeks, a few tiny cucumbers appeared. In a month or two, it all add up to one thing. PICKLE MAKING TIME!! Only, he is not sure how to make pickles, but he will figure that out when it is time.

Makin' pickles is hard work!

This week, a hip new bakery opened up in the mall and Ducky was the first in line. He has been checking up on all of his favorite food blogs, and Frosted is one of the top talked about places for 2014. After looking for more than 10 minutes, and agonizing over which treat to choose, Ducky finally made a decision. He headed over to the cash register and was shocked to see Amanda Panda. “What are you doing here?” he demanded.

“Silly, this is my bakery. Well my mom’s, but I get to help. What are you doing here?” She asked.

“We are here as official judges to see if your little bakery is as good as the blogs say.” Ducky replied. “We would like three large cup cakes. One for each of us. Ted wants chocolate, Blizzard wants chocolate orange, and I would like mint chocolate chip.”

She glared at them, then placed the cup cakes in a fancy box and started tying a fancy bow.

“Just give it to us already,” Ducky shouted, “Ain’t nobody got time for all that fuss. We are ready to eat!”

“Hhmph!” Amanda Panda huffed, “This is a five star bakery! Not a cafeteria! You boys just ruin everything!”

“We’ll be the judge of that.” Ducky said giving her the stink eye. “I’m sure these cup cakes will taste like dirt, if Amanda Panda made them.”

“Go on try it I dare you!” Amanda Panda snapped.

“Wow! These are awesome.” Ted said. “This is the best cup cake ever!” Blizzard replied.

“Now, now. Don’t just say that to be nice. We are judges and we need to be fair.” Ducky says. Then he took one bite. Then another, and another and another until the whole thing was gone.

“So…” Amanda asked.

“I guess they were okay. Not the best, but okay.” Ducky said slyly. “Can I get two dozen to go?”

So many wonderful treats to choose from...

Lately, Blizzard has been having trouble at school. He’s had his nose literally stuck in his books and he is bumping into walls and his classmates. The problem was so bad that his teacher called for a parent-teacher conference with Pembleton.

After an appointment with an optometrist, Blizzard got a new pair of glasses.  For days, Blizzard walked around with his mouth hanging open saying, “Wow! So that’s what that looks like!”

"Whoo, that's what that looks like!"

“Wow, so that’s what that looks like!”

Ducky and Pembleton are living in a mysterious and amazing place called Haifa, Israel. Every weekend they explore new places in the city. Last weekend, they explored the Haifa zoo and met lots of new friends. Today, Pembleton woke everyone up early and announced that he found an amazing place called the Bahai gardens, right here in Haifa. So they packed their backpacks with snacks and juice and took the bus downtown.

When they first got off the bus, Pembleton said, “that doesn’t look right. We were supposed to be in a different place.” Pembleton checked the map and couldn’t recognize any of the street names. He turned to the others and said, “I’m sorry guys. I think we are lost.”

Ducky turned to him and said, “Don’t worry Pembleton. I’ll ask someone for directions.” Once Ducky got directions from a local puppy, they discovered they were only one street over from the entrance to the Bahai gardens.

The gang spent all day exploring the incredible Bahai gardens, and when they were done, they finished the afternoon with lunch and an ice cream cone. Before heading home, they stopped back at the base of the gardens for a group photo. It was a pretty awesome day.

"Whoa! That's quite a view!"

“Whoa! That’s quite a view!”

With the start of the new school year, Ducky decided to start a new club at school. Every Monday at lunch time members of his new club- The Pooh Bear Society, would meet. Club members wear red shirts at meetings, and eat their lunch from honey pots, that sometimes contains honey. Afterwards, they play pooh sticks and other fun games until it’s time to go back to class. Ducky says, Mondays used to be the worst day of the week, but now it’s one of his favorites!

Order, Order! Let the Pooh Bear Society Meeting be called to order!

Every night before going to bed, the Lambs check in on the new born panda at the National Zoo. They like to see what the little guy is up to and hear about the latest updates on his development. But today something horrible and unexpected happened. THE PANDA CAM WAS SHUTDOWN!

So the Lambs decided to protest. They made signs and headed over to the White House, and they’re not going anywhere until the camera is turned back on!

“Panda cam, NOW!” – the Lambs

While in Italy, Ducky had a fountain made in his likeness. He wore a toga and a crown of olive leaves just like Caeser. When modelling for it, he thought it was weird that Gatocelli didn’t look at him much and that he wasn’t allowed to look at the statue until it was finished. Towards the end of sculpting, Ducky got tired, took off his costume, and went to get a snack.

When he came back the statue was gone. “Where is the statue?” Ducky asked.

“I put it on top of a fountain and it’s now in the garden”, replied Gatocelli.

Ducky was so excited … until he reached the garden. Once he saw the fountain, his eyes almost bulged out of his head and he sank back in embarrassment! The statue was not of him as a Caeser but as a chubby cherub- PEEING! So embarrassing! This is the last time he will trust Christmas Koala to recommend an artist!

 

Disgusting!

Disgusting!

Ducky and the gang are currently living in Israel. As such they are learning about and celebrating many Jewish holidays. Tonight starts Rosh Hashanah, also known as the Jewish New Year! As part of the celebrations they ate apples with honey and pieces of a special round challah bread, and then they blew rams horns (which was kinda gross).

Chag Sameach! Happy Holiday! Shana Tova! Good Year!

Blizzard's Midnight Snack.

The Great Tedzini put on his first show this weekend, to a packed house in our living room. Ted and Blizzard had been practicing in secret for days after getting a magic book from the local library. So when Pembleton witnessed Ted saw Blizzard in HALF he was HORRIFIED! But Ted and Blizzard just laughed, because they knew it was just an illusion.

Abracadabra

“Abracadabra”

One night Ducky was watching a marathon of Magnum P.I. on Netflix with the Humans and the gang. It was one of his favorite shows. He liked the action, the adventure, the car, and the hair. He wondered, Wouldn’t it be cool to be a P.I. in Hawaii. After about the 6th episode in a row, his eye lids began to grow heavier and heavier, until he was dozing off…

All of a sudden, he was on a Hawaiian beach, wearing a snazzy shirt and he had a MUSTACHE! Then he realized, “I am Ducky P.I. Oh Yeah. Lets find some bad guys,” he said as he hopped in to his red Ferrari. He enjoyed the nice ocean breeze through his wavy hair as he munched on a nice veggie Hawaiian pizza, ready for his next case.

When all of a sudden there was an EARTHQUAKE! Everything was shaking. Was one of the volcanoes erupting? But then, he realized the car was slowly starting to disappear and Higgens was shouting at him to wake up. Then he was back in the living room. Pembleton was there shaking him, “Come on! It’s time to go to bed. We need to brush our teeth.”

Ducky was sad it was all a dream but hoped when his head hit the pillow he would be back on the beach and solve the case before morning.

Today at the beach Ducky found a bottle washed up on the shore. He heard a story about how people stranded on deserted islands sometimes put messages in bottles asking for someone to come and rescue them. Then Ducky thought, “maybe it’s a treasure map?” Ducky dusted the sand off the sides of the bottle and peered inside.

“Ouch!” A baby crab bit his beak. The bottle didn’t contain any message at all. It was just a home for a baby crab. Ducky carefully put the bottle back where he found it and ran off to splash in the water.

“What secrets does this bottle hold?” -Ducky

Ducky and the gang love to camp! Every summer they go out into the wilderness with their animal buddies and spend a couple of days enjoying nature.

Pembleton is in charge of safety and packing the tent. While Ducky is in charge of the camp fire and meals. Ducky takes his job very seriously. He makes sure they have hot cocoa and smores every night and oatmeal for breakfast.

After breakfast, Pembleton taught Ted and Blizzard how to properly put out a camp fire, which is very important before leaving a camp site. Then, they hit the trails.

Pembleton is an avid reader of the local animal paper. When he spotted an ad for 1 free yoga lesson for beginners, he decided that he and Blizzard were going to check it out. Ducky and Ted didn’t want to be left out, so they tagged along.

At first the yoga lesson was pretty easy. There was a lot of inhaling and exhaling, reaching for the sky and wiggling their toes. Then things got a little more advanced. Cat pose was challenging but doable. Downward dog was easy for Ted and Blizzard, but a little more challenging for Ducky and Pembleton, because they have shorter arms. Then there was the headstand. This one was tricky, but the gang were fast learners.

During the cool down period, the instructor turned the lights down low and played some soothing music. So soothing, someone (we won’t mention who) fell asleep and was snoring loudly!

After the class was over, the Yogi was so impressed with the gangs yoga skills, he invited them back next week for a free advanced level class.

Earlier today, Ducky and Pembleton were looking at some old photos. They were so old, it was before they knew their little buddies Ted and Blizzard.

Ted and Blizzard were confused. They had never heard of baseball and were wondering why Pembleton was prepared for battle. This afternoon, the gang went to a nearby park, where Ducky and Pembleton taught the little guys how to play catch.  Then they came home to watch the end of the Oakland A’s beating the Red Sox, while eating Cracker Jacks. Ducky is a huge fan of Stomper (the A’s mascot) and caramel popcorn.

"Batter Up!"

“Batter Up!”

The Getaway.

Pembleton ran into the crown jewel exhibit just in time to see the robotic thief smash the bulletproof glass on the case containing the royal crown. Without hesitating Pembleton dove across the room and grabbed onto one of the robot’s legs to slow him down, but the robot was so strong that he just kept walking. When Ducky and Conrad made it into the room, Ducky grabbed Pembleton’s feet, and Conrad held on to one of Ducky’s feet. With all of their combined strength, they only managed to slow the robot. He just kept moving towards the window that he broke in through.

Pembleton frantically pulled out some wires in the robots leg but it only made the robot move faster! Eventually they had to let the robot go. It jumped out the window and ran into the darkness of the night.

To be continued …

The Pirate Ship.

“What is your theory Pembleton?” asked Conrad.

“Do you think a cucumber thief is involved?” Ducky asked.

“No, Ducky. The Cat Pirates.” DUN-DUN-DUN, Pembleton replied. “They have taken Mr. Sloth, but I am not sure why, yet. We need to search the ship.”

They went to investigate the pirate ship. They looked through every nook and cranny. Then Pembleton found a box. He used a crowbar to open it. Ducky tried to help and almost fell overboard. In the box, they found a bottle of ant-acids, some cans of tuna fish, some disguises, along with a couple of maps of London.

"Does this ship, belong to who I think it belongs to?"- Ducky

“Does this ship, belong to who I think it belongs to?”- Ducky

While Pembleton examined the markings and notes on the maps, Conrad discovered a brochure. The brochure had information about an exhibit of the crown jewels at the London Animal Museum.

“Doesn’t that exhibit open tomorrow?” Ducky asked. “They always have the best snacks at their opening celebration.”

“That means they are going to try and  steal the crown jewels, before the opening tomorrow.” Pembleton concluded. “We have to go to the museum right away!”

The Docks.

By the time they arrived at the docks, a thick fog covered the harbor. Pembleton said to Ducky and Conrad, “Be on the look out for our next clue.”

They began to survey the area, searching high and low. Conrad, armed with his magnifying glass, found some bolts. “These have to be from Mr. Sloth’s robot. I think we are getting close.”

“I concur,” Pembleton replied, as he noticed another hairball.

“I found a clue! I found a clue!” shouted Dr. Ducky, “I think it will be the one to break the case.”

“Really? What is it Ducky?” Pembleton asked.

“You got to come see this,” Ducky said with excitement.

“Umm… Is that a cucumber?” Conrad asked.

“Actually it’s a clue-cumber.” Ducky corrected him.

“No, Ducky. That is just a cucumber. However, that pirate ship behind you is definitely a clue.” Pembleton replied. “This confirms my theory.”

To be continued…

"Look! It's a clue-cumber!"

“Look! It’s a clue-cumber!”
