Ducky and Pembleton have been very busy lately. After staying in New York for almost one month, it was time for them to complete the final stage of their move.

They packed up their clothes and toys into Pembleton’s plane and headed east. They flew over the Atlantic Ocean, the Eiffel Tower, the Colosseum of Rome, Athens, and finally to Haifa, Israel.

It was a long trip. When they arrived, Ducky and Ted went to get some felafel for lunch, while Pembleton and Blizzard decided to have a salad with cucumbers and tomato.

So far, Ducky and the gang are enjoying their new home. The weather is nice and the food is great, but they are looking forward to meeting new friends and having many more exciting adventures.

(Sorry for the lack of posting, we are trying to be better! 2013 has been crazy so far. We should be settled in about a week!)

Shalom! We made it!

Shalom! We made it!

While cleaning their room and going through their old toys, Ducky and Pembleton discovered their old kite. Ted and Blizzard asked “What is that?”

Ducky and Pembleton couldn’t believe they had never seen a kite. Instead of explaining Pembleton said “Let’s go to the park, right now and we will show you.” Ducky was so excited, he could barely stand it.

Once they got to the park, Pembleton quickly assembled the kite and Ducky helped to launch it in to the air.  In just a few seconds, the kite was high in the sky. Ted and Blizzard were amazed at how high the kite could go. Pembleton even did a few tricks.

Now Ted and Blizzard want their own kite, but not as big as Pembleton’s kite.

Higher! Higher!

Early this morning, Pembleton received a phone call from the International Society of Animal Vulcanologists. Mount Fuego in Guatemala had erupted with almost no warning! The society had evacuated most of the local animals, but there were still several families missing. Pembleton, thinking that Ducky would just get in the way, snuck out of the house and headed to the airfield where his plane was being prepped for takeoff.

Several minutes into the flight, Pembleton heard strange noises coming from the copilot’s compartment. Looking behind, Pembleton found a round ball of fluffy feathers rifling through his lunchbox. “Where are all the good snacks?”, Ducky asked.

Pembleton was shocked. “What are you doing here?”

“I came to help save the animals.”

“I thought you were sleeping. How did know that I was going on a mission?”

“The aroma of PB&J woke me up, when you were packing your lunchbox this morning. So I decided to find out what you were up to”, Ducky said with an innocent grin. “Can I fly the plane?”

“No!”

“Plus you know you can’t go rescuing animals without me. You need me because we are a team! … Can I fly the plane now?”

“No!”

Ducky and Pembleton raced towards the volcano where they were able to help rescue all of the missing families near Mount Fuego. After a hard days work, Ducky and Pembleton enjoyed PB&J sandwhiches and headed home. Pembleton never let Ducky fly the plane.

This story is dedicated to our little panda buddy at the National Zoo, who sadly passed away today.
