Ducky and Pembleton packed their gear, then dropped the lil’ guys off at Mrs. Cottontail’s cottage, before heading to the airfield. Things were running smoothly until a patch of dark clouds appeared on the horizon as they were over the Horn of Africa and entering the Indian Ocean.

Before they knew it, the plane was surrounded by rain, thunder, and lightning. Visibility was down to 100 meters. Pembleton turned to Ducky and said, “Thank goodness for the planes top notch altimeter and GPS systems,” but just as he tapped on the plane’s compass, all of the instruments went haywire. Both Ducky and Pembleton were scared. “Without my instruments, we don’t even know which way is up. What are we going to do?”

Just when they thought all hope was lost, Ducky saw something strange. He tapped Pembleton on the shoulder and yelled over the hum of the plane’s engine, “Follow that elephant.”

Confused, Pembleton yelled back to Ducky, “What are you talking about? We’re almost a mile above an ocean. There can’t possibly be an elephant here!”

“Over there! Over there! Look at that cloud! It’s an elephant and he’s pointing the way!”

“You’re right! It is!” Pembleton turned the plane to follow the elephant and within a matter of minutes they were leaving the thunder storm behind. They waved goodbye as they passed their fluffy elephant buddy and headed off into clear blue skies.

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.

The other night, the Humans went to an Indian restaurant for dinner.  They brought the boys back some Kheer (Indian rice pudding). The rice pudding was the best rice pudding Ducky had ever tasted. He wanted more.  He thought about how he could find the perfect rice pudding.  After a few minutes, he had a plan. He would go to India, and find a Kheer Guru. But first, he had to convinced Pembleton to drop him and the lil’ guys off in India.

Shortly after they arrived in India, they found a baby elephant who knew a Kheer Guru. The guru lived on the other side of the jungle. The baby elephant, with permission from his mom, offered to give Ducky and the lil’ guys a ride, but only if he could have some pudding too.

Once they got to the other side of the jungle, they were at the Kheer Guru’s house. They knocked on the door. When the Guru answered, they were greeted with the sweet smell of amazing rice pudding. The Guru let them in and taught them all the secrets to making the perfect rice pudding. The best part was eating bowls and bowls of pudding.
