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.

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

Today after school, Ducky and the gang could not escape a really stinky smell. “Gross! What is that smell?” Pembleton asked. Ted and Blizzard started sniffing around and both concluded, “It’s DUCKY!”

Apparently, on bath nights, he has been playing in the bath tub and not actually washing! He also had a slice of Limburger cheese in his pocket! “GROSS!” So tonight, with some extra supervision, Ducky got a double washing and an extra fluffing during bath time.

Rub-a-dub-dub!

Rub-a-dub-dub!

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!”

On his way to deliver blankets and donations to animals of the North East, Ducky didn’t see a huge snow drift that had formed on the train tracks until the last second. He was busy shovelling coal into the Ducky Express’ engine. When he looked up it was too late to stop the train.

Ducky jumped and rolled into a soft snow pile. However, the train headed full speed into a gigantic mountain of snow that had blown onto the train tracks. There was a huge explosion of snow powder and then slow chugging as the train’s engine struggled against the snow.

Ducky inspected the wreckage to find that the train was completely stuck. What would he do? He needed to get those supplies to the animals, but how?

To be continued…

Not again. Pembleton is going to be so mad!

Not again. Pembleton is going to be so mad!

Ducky was outside exploring the frozen north when he was attacked by a giant blue, grumpy monster. The monster grabbed Ducky by the foot and brought him back to his icy cave. Lucky, when Ducky arrived the monsters son, Edgar knew how to speak animal. Ducky learned that Edgar and his father are Yeti and that Edgar’s father was grumpy due to his male pattern baldness. Ducky told Edgar that he could acquire a wig for his father, which made him much less grumpy.

When Ducky got home, he told Pembleton, Ted, and Blizzard what had happened. Ted and Blizzard were amazed, but Pembleton didn’t believe Ducky until Edgar waddled inside. Ducky went upstairs and found a suitable wig for Edgar’s dad, then Ducky invited the Yeti over for dinner, where they shared stories of amazing adventures.

“Good morning class,” Mrs. Cottontail exclaimed, “Who can tell me why we celebrate Thanksgiving?”

“To have a day off from school” said Rodolph the lamb.

“We do get the day off,” said Mrs. Cottontail, “but that is not the reason.”

“To eat lots of pie?” Ducky Asked.

“We do eat lots of pie,” Mrs. Cottontail replied, “but that’s not quite it.”

“I know, I know!” Pembleton shouted. “To give thanks for all the wonderful friends, family and blessing we have in our lives.”

“Exactly Pembleton.” Mrs. Cottontail smiled. “Now lets celebrate.”

“These costumes are cool.” Ducky said on their way to school, “but why are we all dressed up?”

“I know, I know” said Blizzard. “Today we are celebrating Thanksgiving.”

“Thanksgiving!” Ted said. “What’s that?”

“Just wait” Pembleton said. “Mrs. Cottontail, our teacher, will explain everything.”

The day before Thanksgiving, Pembleton and Blizzard woke up bright and early. Ducky and Ted, however needed their beauty sleep.

“Wake up, wake up. It’s time for school.” Pembleton shouted as he shook Ducky. “We have to get ready for school.” After several attempts, Ducky and Ted were finally up.

Earlier this week, Ducky ran into Christmas Koala while shopping for some new sweat bands. As always, Christmas Koala gave him an offer, Ducky couldn’t refuse.

Ducky got a gym membership at the Koala Klub for a great deal, and he is already seeing results! Ducky thinks Pembleton will be jealous.

Ducky's Business Tip # 3

“Networking is the key to a successful business!”

Tip # 3

Networking is the key to a successful business!

Ducky makes most of his business deals through his relationships with other animals. For example, Ducky was introduced to Christmas Koala by the Lambs, and when Ducky was in India searching for the perfect rice pudding (The Quest for the Perfect Kheer) he was able to convince the baby elephant to give him a ride because the baby elephant also knew Christmas Koala. Pembleton introduced Ducky to Potbelly Phil (a decision which Pembleton still regrets), and Potbelly Phil was the animal that called in a request to rescue the racoons from a tree during the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

Every animal Ducky meets is a potential business customer, and the more happy customers that Ducky has, the more animals will come to him for future business. That is why networking is the key to a successful business.

After school Pembleton noticed the leaves in the yard were getting out of control. He asked Ducky if he would help with the yard. Ducky happily agreed. Pembleton got the rakes out and started doing yard work. He hoped to get it all done, so they could go to a festival on Saturday.

He raked and raked, making a huge pile of leaves, but Ducky was no where in sight. He went inside to warm up for a minute. When he came back out, he found Ducky, Ted, and Blizzard playing in the huge pile of leaves he just raked. After a few seconds of being annoyed, he decided to jump in as well. Then when they were all done playing, they all pitched in and finished the yard in a few minutes.

We hope you all have a great weekend!

Today is a special day at school. It is “Sharing Day” and everyone is bringing something to share with the class. Ted and Blizzard are bringing their favorite Pumpkin Snickerdoodle cookies to share. Pembleton is sharing his ant colony he has been raising and Ducky is sharing his blog with the class. He wants to share his stories and pictures from his adventures with the other students. He even brought a book of his stories to give to his teacher, Mrs. Cottontail, to add to their story time collection.

If you had a Sharing Day at school, what would you like to share with your fellow classmates?

Remember any day is a good day to share Ducky’s blog with family or friends. Who wouldn’t enjoy fun & exciting stories about little animals doing big things?

Pembleton the scientist explains the science of seed

How do seeds grow?

Earlier this week Ducky asked Pembleton, “How do seeds grow?” Pembleton got really excited and went to his study to retrieve lots of charts and figures of seeds and plants. Pointing to the seed, Pembleton started by explaining, “Seeds have something called DNA. DNA is a plan to build the entire plant from one tiny seed. The seed gathers energy and materials to grow from water, soil, and food stored inside the seed. Given water and soil with plenty of minerals, the seed will slowly add roots and leaves until it becomes a full grown plant.”

Ducky asked, “Can we grow an apple tree in the backyard?”

Pembleton said, “Yeah! Where will you get an apple seed?”

Ducky went to the kitchen and came back with two halves of a shiny red caramel apple. After eating the apple, Pembleton helped to extract the apple seeds. Then they went the backyard, made a small hole in the corner of the backyard, and planted the apple seed.

Two minutes later, Ducky asked why the plant wasn’t growing yet. Pembleton said, “Some plants, like apple trees, take years to grow.”

Until next time, Pembleton reminds you to KEEP BEING CURIOUS!

If you have a question for Pembleton, leave it in the comment section.

Ducky, Pembleton, and the Lambs did their civic duty today and voted. Did you?

Tomorrow is Election Day and Ducky wants to remind you to vote, for him.

Over the weekend, after seeing some political commercials, Ducky decided to run for President of All Humans. His background as self proclaimed Emperor of all Fowl, provides him with experience and know how on how to get the job done.

Plus, Pembleton is running as his Vice President. Pembleton has lots of leadership experience, and experience getting Ducky out of trouble.

Their platform:

  1. Snack time and Recess for all (naps optional).
  2. Macaroni and Cheese Fridays.
  3. Stricter rules on the ownership of exotic animals.
  4. All koala sales bears must register with the Better Business Bureau.
  5. As VP, Pembleton promises to help protect Antarctica.

While the gang has been having fun with Halloween this week, they have also been busy helping with Hurricane Sandy Relief. They have received several distress calls from animals who are stranded by flood waters or without food or shelter. Pembleton arranged for everyone to head up to the north east to help. The Lambs passed out blankets and snacks at an animal shelter, while Ducky and Pembleton searched for stranded animals, who needed help.

If you would like to also help, please visit the Red Cross website.

Last night the gang had a great time trick or treating. They got lots of candy, treats, and other sweet surprises. They also had the best costumes in the neighborhood.

When they got home, they were not quite ready for bed. After their baths, the humans popped them some popcorn, and put in the movie Hocus Pocus. Shortly after the movie started, Rumpelstiltskin came out of the kitchen with a PB&J and joined them. Only Rumpelstiltskin stayed awake for the whole movie. I guess they will have to watch it again next year.

This Halloween picking out the right costume wasn’t easy. There were so many good ones to choose from. But once the gang knew what they wanted, it was unanimous. Ducky would be Mr. Incredible. Ted and Blizzard both wanted to be Dash. And Pembleton wanted to be Frozone.

We hope every one has a safe and fun Halloween.

After a couple of incidents that Ducky doesn’t want to talk about, Ducky needed his own vehicle in order to get around. He went to his piggy bank and counted all his human money- $7.28. He then went to his turtle bank and counted all his animal money- 15 lime jelly beans and a linty licorice stick. Ducky was so proud of his savings and knew he would be able to get the perfect vehicle.

After collecting his money, he hopped on the city bus and headed for the Ferrari dealer. After being laughed at, he headed to the other local dealerships. No one wanted to sell him a sweet ride.

Feeling defeated, Ducky remembered his friend and local mechanic, Bio-Diesel Weasel, also sold used cars.  He headed over to Bio-Diesel Weasel’s shop right away. Once he laid eyes on an old timey car, he was hooked.

Ducky made Bio-Diesel Weasel an offer, he couldn’t refuse. He loved lime jelly beans. Plus he owed Ducky a favor, for rescuing his cousin from a cat. Later he threw out the linty licorice stick.

Ducky was now the proud owner of “Ducky Ducky Bang Bang” the loudest and oldest bucket of bolts on the block.  With the help of Mr. Lamb, Ducky was ready to hit the streets at a whopping 10 miles per hour.

Captain Ducky and his crew set off on an interstellar voyage for the perfect snack. They vowed to “boldly go where no animal has gone before.”  When they reached the planet Lambeus, they encountered two strange creatures. The creatures were making something that smelled similar to chocolate chip cookies. Due to the principle of non intervention, Captain Ducky suggested they take the cookies when the aliens (the Lambs) are not looking and to high tail it out of there. Pembleton agreed, stating “it is the logical thing to do.”  They beamed Cadet Ted and Cadet Blizzard to the location of the cookies to retrieve them quickly, before the aliens noticed. They were safely beamed back to the ship. Before eating, Pembleton preformed a complete scan to ensure the cookies were safe. Once it was complete, they enjoyed their snack time.

One day at recess. Ducky and Ted were playing with soap bubbles. Ducky had a giant blue wand that he was using to make large bubbles. Ted was running around and popping the bubbles. Each new bubble got bigger and bigger, as Ducky perfected his bubble making.  One bubble was so big and so strong that when Ted went to pop it, he fell into the bubble and started to float away.

Ducky was horrified. He shouted for help. Pembleton saw what was happening and rushed to get his special plunger, he often uses to get cats out of trees. He aimed; he fired, and thankfully rescued Ted.

From now on, Ducky won’t blow bubbles, or at least not till he figures out a safer way when Ted is around.

Do you have any ideas on how to keep Ted safe, while blowing big bubbles?

Business advice

Tip # 2 Beware of Traveling Sales Koalas

Tip # 2

Beware Traveling Sales Koalas!

Ducky’s first tip, being cute, can sometimes mean trouble when trying to buy wholesale items. Ducky has fallen victim to Traveling Sales Koalas, several times. They are so cute and their offers are too good to be true.

For example, Ducky loves Sister Shubert rolls. Christmas Koala (as seen in the picture above) offered him a great deal on Brother Shubert rolls. When Ducky got them in the mail, they were stinky old sushi rolls! Pembleton would not let Ducky sell the Brother Shubert rolls because of the animal health code.

Another time, Ducky bought a year’s supply of chocolate milk mix only to find out they were made with a fake chocolate called carob. YUCK! Ducky’s customers only like the real stuff.

Then there was the time that Ducky thought he was purchasing the real Eifel Tower in Paris, but then one week later he received a 3 inch miniature in the mail. After all of those horrible purchases, Pembleton warned Ducky not to buy stuff from traveling sales Koalas, but the power of cuteness is hard to resist, especially from those wearing Christmas sweaters.

Ducky is a World Champion Heart-lifter. If it was an Olympic sport, Ducky would have the gold medal, no contest.

What is a Champion Heart-lifter, you might ask. Well a Champion Heart-lifter, is someone with the unique gift of bringing joy and happiness to people having a rough time in life. Ducky often visits children who are in the hospital, or the elderly in nursing homes to lift their hearts and make them laugh.  He always enjoys sharing his snacks with them.

Ducky is a Champion Heart-lifter, but you can be one too. Just be a friend to someone in need.

This weekend, Ducky, Pembleton, Ted, and Blizzard flew up to Vermont to enjoy the last days of the fall berries. Pembleton came up with the idea to pick some blueberries and bring them home so that the Lambs could make a blueberry pie.

When they got to Vermont, they met some of the local animals and asked them where they could find the best blueberry patch. A porcupine told them about a human farm, but Pembleton said they would have to pay the farmer, and Ducky didn’t have any money. Plus, they prefer wild blueberries because they are sweeter. Then they met a black bear cub who told them about a patch of never ending blueberry bushes in a field between two small mountains. After several hours of hiking, they finally reached the BEST BLUEBERRY PATCH IN THE WORLD!

Somehow only Pembleton managed to collect blueberries for the pie, while Ducky and the Lil’ Guys got a belly ache from eating so many blueberries. Blizzard was practically all purple from blueberry juice. They had a great day.

“Ducky! The blueberries are for the pie not your belly!”, said Pembleton.
