What a crazy dream!

Last night, Ducky dreamed that him and Pembleton were in a video game. They almost got eaten by Pac Man and they had to jump from one platform to another collecting bananas. Then after rescuing a princess, they met up with Donkey Kong and who ate all the bananas they collected.

While it was fun being in a video game, Ducky is glad that he isn’t stuck in there and can enjoy the real outdoors.

Nice to meet you Mr. Kong.

Nice to meet you Mr. Kong.

Merry Christmas DtPb!The wait is over! Ducky, Ted, Pembleton & Blizzard are on Santa Watch! They are tracking Santa using the NORAD Santa Website.

For more than 50 years, NORAD and its predecessor, the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) have tracked Santa’s flight… In 1958, the governments of Canada and the United States created a bi-national air defense command for North America called the North American Aerospace Defense Command, also known as NORAD, which then took on the tradition of tracking Santa. (From NORAD HQ)

We hope you all have been good this year! Merry Christmas!

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.

When Ducky and the gang got to the local spa, they could not believe what they saw! Abigail and her dad, Mr. Sloth, who they first met on a past adventure, were laying on the beach soaking up some sun with cucumber slices covering their eyes.

“This is the life, my dear. Who would have thought we would crash into paradise,” Mr. Sloth said, as he sipped his lemonade. Abigail agreed.

“WHAT!?! You guys are doing better than we are. We are suppose to be rescuing you!” Ducky asked in an annoyed tone.

“Whoo, whose there?!?” Mr. Sloth said as he sat up quickly. His cucumber slices sliding down his cheeks. “What are you doing here Ducky? Pembleton? Oh, and hi Ted and Blizzard. As for the rescuing, can it wait until after our massage this afternoon. They truly are wonderful. It’s amazing what T-Rexs can do with their little arms.”

“I guess I don’t see the harm in staying a little while longer considering we aren’t sure how to get out of here. Where ever this is?” Pembleton replied. “But first, can you tell us what happened? Why did your plane go down? Why were you flying over the Himalayas?”

“Well you see. Everything was going according to plan. I was hired to fly some crates of party supplies to India for Edgor’s cousin’s nephew’s best friend’s wedding. After dropping off the crates, we received orders to conduct a 3D topographical scan of the local mountain range. Once we got close, our auto pilot took over. We were trying to regain control when a storm hit. But we couldn’t. It was so strange. I still don’t understand what went wrong.” Mr. Sloth said as he shook his head.

“Don’t worry Mr. Sloth. We will get to the bottom of this,” Pembleton declared, “but first can I get one of those lemonades?”

“I can’t believe we made it all the way across that sketchy wooden bridge without any problems,” Ducky said as they reached the entrance to the Forbidden Caves. Ducky was in a better mood ever since the monks from the temple got him a cozy snow suit and harness so that ted could be strapped to the front. “Wow, there sure is a lot of junk up here for a place that’s supposed to be forbidden.”

“This isn’t ordinary junk,” Pembleton answered. “Look there’s a crate, a can of oil, and a parachute. It looks like someone was throwing stuff out of their plane to lighten the load.”

“But where is the plane now?” Blizzard asked.

“I don’t know, but we’re headed in the right direction.”

Inside the Temple, Harry the snow hare gave Ducky a blanket and some warm food. After a couple of minutes he started to feel much better, and a lot warmer.

While at the temple, they began to discuss the search and rescue plan. Harry and his friend Tom the tortoise had heard some locals saw smoke rising from the west, next to the forbidden caves. They might have gone inside for shelter from the storm.

“Forbidden caves?” Ducky asked, “Why are they forbidden?”

“Legend has it that everyone who has gone in to them has never returned,” Tom replied.

“Legend or not, it’s our best lead, and we will come back.” Pembleton said with determination.

Ducky and Pembleton called for an emergency meeting of the Animal Adventurer’s Society. Something had happened over the Himalayan mountains and some animals needed their help. Members of the society hung on every word as Pembleton briefed them on the dire situation.

“I know we don’t have a lot of details, but we have to help them,” Pembleton concluded.

From the balcony Professor Plumbottom Mole shouted, “We are adventures, not rescuers. This is outside of our jurisdiction. It is foolish for us to waste our resources on something we know so little about.”

“I understand your concern Professor Plumbottom, but as stated in our constitution: ‘Members of AAS will not turn their backs on an animal in need.’ Furthermore, Ducky and I volunteer to lead this venture.”

“As a senior member of this organization, I vote NAY regarding this adventure. Who seconds me?”

Ducky and the gang are about to go on a new multipart adventure into the unforgiving Himalayan mountains. On this adventure, they will face danger at every turn, overcome impossible odds, meet new friends, and discover the secrets of a lost civilization. Stay tuned for the first part of this exciting adventure.

Our next adventure!

Our next adventure!

Ducky and the gang are currently exploring the Canadian North for a couple of weeks. They will be spending some time in the Montreal area and hopefully meeting new friends. One of the first friends they have met is Marty the Mounty, a Canadian pony and officer of the law. He will be showing Ducky and the gang the ropes as they acclimate to their new home away from home.

Aye, what would you like to know a-boot Canada?

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!”

Tip # 5 Pay the Bills!

Tip # 5 Pay the Bills!

Tip # 5

Always pay the Bills on time.

This tip seems obvious, but if your business is booming, like Ducky’s and your having fun- you might let it slip your mind. One time Ducky forgot to pay the Bills and they were really angry! So mark your calendars and set a Google reminder! Because no one wants the Bills to show up uninvited.

Summer vacation is coming to an end and before the gang goes back to school, they decided to clean up the house. At first Ducky didn’t want to. He thought it would be too much work, but Pembleton convinced him.  “If we all pitched in and work together, it won’t be too hard,” Pembleton said as he got out the cleaning supplies.

Ducky cleaned the bathroom, while the rest of the gang focused on the family room. It was a big job, but the cookies afterwards were worth it.

"Who put Cheerios in the toilet?" Ducky asked.

“Who put Cheerios in the toilet?” Ducky asked.

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.

Award Ceremony.

Once Captain One Mitten and his crew were in the pokey, the gang went home to reunite Mr. Sloth with his daughter, Abigail.

When they got home Ted, Blizzard, and Abigail were so happy everyone made it home safely. Abigail ran in to her father’s arms, giving him the biggest hug ever. Then she went over to Ducky and Pembleton who were standing near by, hugged them, and told them, “Thank you.”

Mrs. Cottontail invited everyone to stay for lunch. She was making vegetarian shepherd’s pie, one of Ducky’s favorites. During lunch, the phone rang. Mrs. Cottontail answered, “Hello…yes, he is here. One moment.” She turned to Pembleton and handed him the phone. After, a few yes ma’ams and a “We’d be delighted”. Pembleton hung up the phone.

“That was Queen Pugglesworth. She wishes to present us with the medal of bravery and heroics for our job well done. We are invited to the palace this evening and all of our friends are invited too.” Pembleton announced with excitement.

The End.

“Job well done!” said the Queen.

Once Ducky and the gang were discovered as intruders, the jig was up. The cat pirates rounded them up and snatched Ducky’s mustache off.

“Who do we have here?” said Captain One Mitten. “Well if it isn’t my arch nemesis Ducky and Pembleton. Because of you, Egor has turned soft. He now volunteers at a nursing home and is doing community theater. It disgusts me how he is such a stinkin’ do good-er.”

“Community theater? Sounds interesting. What’s his next play?” Ducky asked.

“WHAT?!?! Never mind you. Keep your mouth shut, while I come up with an evil plan to deal with you and this time you won’t get away.”

Just as he spoke his last word, there were high pitched sirens from outside on the docks.

“This is Scotland Yard. You are surrounded. Come out with your paws up and don’t try any funny business.” Chief Bear-Brown yelled through the megaphone.

“NO!!!!! How do you always foil my plans?” Captain One Mitten yelled, as one of his crew members confirmed they were surrounded by the Scotland Yard K-9 Unit.

“You see my dear fellow, Inspector Conrad, or you may know him as Mousetrap, contacted his colleagues at Scotland Yard and requested back up before we entered your hide out. You never stood a chance, especially once Ducky, or should I say Cheeseball, started the piratey celebration.” Pembleton replied. “Now let’s get Mr. Sloth back to Abigale and the crown jewels back to the museum.”

Realizing they had been defeated. The cat pirates and Captain One Mitten were marched out of the cannery, by Conrad and were off to the pokey.

Next, the finale…

The Chase.

Ducky, Pembleton, and Conrad dashed out of the museum and in to the dark London streets.

“Where did he go?” Ducky asked.

“That’s the easy part. Do you see the dark puddles on the road? The robot is leaving us a trail of oil we can follow. Let’s go.” Pembleton exclaimed.

“Wait. I know a faster way,” said Conrad as he hailed a taxi. “Stop in the name of the law. I hereby commandeer this taxi by the authority of her majesty, the Queen.”  The taxi driver was a little confused, but quickly got out of the car as Ducky, Pembleton, and Conrad climbed in.

“Where do you think he is going?” Ducky asked.

“I think I might know, but let’s not take our chances. Follow that trail!” Pembleton shouted.

"How is such a robust robot so fast?" Ducky asked.

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 …

Pembleton, Ducky, and Conrad try to stop the robot theif.

Meanwhile…

CRASH! A window in the crown jewels exhibit hall broke. The Cat Pirates had forced Mr. Sloth to reprogram his robot to steal the crown jewels.

On the other side of the building, Ducky asked, “What was that noise?”

“I think a window just broke. Quick, we need to investigate.” Pembleton shouted.

The Museum.

Pembleton, Ducky and Conrad took a taxi to the museum. When they reached the London Animal Museum, Ducky was amazed by how large it was. The building took up two city blocks and was made of marble.

They climbed the marble staircase to the main entrance. There they were met by two mole security guards wielding squirt guns.

“Freeze or you’ll get a mouth full of cold stinky swamp water,” one mole said with a Scottish accent.

“No! Don’t shoot, I’m Conrad, Investigator with Scotland Yard!”

Conrad hurriedly explained the situation and the other mole radioed in for the central security chief to let them in the museum. They entered the huge lobby and were greeted by a several museum exhibits.

“Whoa! Check out this wooly mammoth skeleton. I wish Ted was here to see this. It’s AWESOME!” Ducky exclaimed.

“Ducky, we can’t get distracted now! Abigail is counting on us. We need to find the crown jewel exhibit. Once there we need to figure out how to stop the cat pirates and rescue Abigail’s dad!” Pembleton said as they rushed up the steps to search the rest of the museum.

"WHOA, look at that MAMMOTH!"

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 Clues.

On their way to the docks, Conrad asked Pembleton, “Why on Earth are we going to the docks? What possibly could those measly clues have told you?”

Pembleton began to explained as they walked the foggy, brisk London streets towards the docks. “The first clue, was that Abigail could not stop sneezing. Now, why would that be? I asked myself. It is not allergy season, and she is a healthy child with no sign of illness. Then I remembered last year when she got a kitten for her birthday, and she could not stop sneezing. She is allergic to cats. This leads to our second clue.”

Aaaachooo!!!

Aaaachooo!!!

“At Mr. Sloth’s laboratory, we found a hairball. This confirmed it was a cat, but it also provided some more insight. There is one cat in particular who has crossed my path before, who has such a problem. I’ll explain more about that later.”

Gross! A hairball.

Gross! A hairball.

“Finally that leaves our last clue. The tuna fish sandwich. This  again confirms we are dealing with cats, but it also tells us their location. I know of this stinky, horrendous brand of tuna fish. It is canned right here in London at the docks. You can smell it from a kilometer a way. Once there, I’m sure my final prognosis will be confirmed,” said Pembleton.

Stinky!

Stinky!

“What’s your final prognosis, Pembleton?” Ducky asked.

“Just wait, Ducky. All in good time,” Pembleton replied.

The Case of the Missing Sloth (Part 2)

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.

“I wonder who’s there?” -Ducky

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?

Thank you for joining us on our “Mystery of the Desert Sands” adventure.

We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
