A Penny saved is a Penny Earned.

Tip #6: A Penny Saved is a Penny Earned.

For Christmas, Ducky got a new piggy bank. He has been trying his hardest to save his money. However, this is a tough tip for Ducky to follow, because there is a corner store near our home that sales penny candy! He just loves penny candy, but he is resisting and so far he has saved $0.42! That is the most money Ducky has ever saved! His goal is $10 so we can buy a Star Wars Lego set to put on his Lemonade stand. He thinks it will help attract customers.

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.

Let me down!

Let me down!

At school Amanda Panda invited Pembleton and Ducky to a fancy tea party at her house. She also told them to dress nice. Ducky and Pembleton had other plans, but didn’t know how to tell Amanda no.

On their way home Ducky and Pembleton were wondering what they should wear. Then Ducky remembered they had brand new suits at home. They went home and dropped off their book bags and lunch boxes. They quickly got dressed. As they were admiring themselves in the mirror, Ducky asked “How do I look?”

“Pretty spiffy,” Pembleton responded. “How do I look?”

“Awesome! Now lets go before we get in trouble. You know Amanda doesn’t like us to be late.” Ducky said as he grabbed his war hammer and was out the door.

When they got to the party, Amanda Panda and Penelope the Penguin, were setting up the tea party with tea and cookies on the table. Then with one look at the two boys, Amanda Panda began to fill with anger.

“What are you two wearing? I told you to dress nice! This is a fancy tea party!”

“What are you talking about?” Ducky asked. “We are wearing the fanciest suits we own.”

“Do you know how hard it is to get authentic Captain American and Thor costumes? These are collectables!” Pembleton replied.

Amanda Panda huffed and ate a cookie, while Penelope just smiled and said “I think you make a good Captain American, Pembleton. But Ducky, that wig is crazy.”

After enjoying her cookie Amanda Panda cooled off, but demanded Ducky not put his war hammer on the table.

“What do you think you are wearing?”

Black Friday madness isn’t only for humans; it’s for animals too. Ted and Blizzard have wanted Peabody Robots all year, but they cost 3 weeks of allowance. After seeing how much they cost, Ducky and Pembleton decided to check them out on Black Friday, or Purple Friday as Amanda Panda calls it.

When they got to Amanda Panda’s parents garage, all the toys were set up nice and neat. Everything was painted purple and most importantly the Peabody Robots that were stacked in a pyramid were 50% off! What a deal. Ducky was so excited and so nervous he might not get one, he started running toward them. At the last second before Pembleton could stop him, Ducky dove into the air knocking over the pyramid, but also securing a robot in his little wings.

Let’s just say, Amanda Panda wasn’t too happy and would only sell Ducky the robot at 50% off, if he helped clean up the mess.

Happy Purple Friday! Be safe!

“I’ve got the last one!”

“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.”

“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.”

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.

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?

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.

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?

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.

With Halloween only 12 days away, Ducky and the gang are already in the holiday spirit. Last night they decided to watch one of their favorite Halloween movies, Casper the Friendly Ghost.  Earlier that day, Ducky had to take a physical education test where he had to run, do jumping jacks, and somersaults. Ducky was quite exhausted and was heavy eyed during the movie. Before he knew it, he was snoozing.

In his dream, he saw four super cute ghosts in front of a large house. The first one who was quite round said “I’m hungry.” The second ghost, who was tall and thin, said “Tonight is a great night to use my telescope. Look at how full the moon is.” The two little ghosts just giggled and waved as they chased each other. When Ducky woke up, he wondered why the ghost from his dream were so familiar, but then he realized he was hungry. So he went and got a snack.

“I’m hungry, can ghosts eat?”

Fall is one of Ducky’s favorite times of year. He likes the fall leaves, especially the orange and yellow ones. He likes dressing up in costumes and getting free candy. But his favorite part of fall are the desserts! His favorite cookies are Pumpkin spiced and iced cookies by Libby’s and his favorite pie is- you guessed it, Pumpkin Pie!

“Vacation at last.” Mrs. Lamb sighed as she woke up in a comfy bed in their German chateau. She got up, looked out of her window and saw the beautiful German country side. Knowing she was far, far away from Ducky, she couldn’t help but smile.

“Are you ready to party?” Mr. Lamb said as he put on his hat and grabbed his favorite apple juice stein.

The Lambs left their chateau in the country, hopped on a train, and were on their way to Oktoberfest! This was the one time of year, where they were Ducky-free and were able to do what they wanted to do. As they arrived, Mrs. Lamb wasted no time and got a pretzel from their favorite vendor. They rode several rides, played games, and ate plum cake.

As the day was winding down, the Lambs ran into an old friend, Mr. Hedgehog. “How are you, Mr. Hedgehog?” Mr. Lamb asked as he sipped on his apple juice.

“I’m having a blast! Plus, I got this awesome shirt for free. Did you know that Oktober is now called Ducktober?” Mr. Hedgehog replied.

Mrs. Lamb in shock dropped her pretzel and Mr. Lamb choked on his apple juice. “What did you say?” They asked together.

“They didn’t have enough time to make the signs this year, but next year, this will be Ductober fest and they are building a new hall in honor of an Emperor named Ducky. Do you know him?”

The Lambs, quickly said Auf Wiedersehen without answering his question. They needed to get back to the peace and quiet of their chateau. The only true place they could escape Ducky, or so they hoped.

Guten Tag!

Every year around this time, the gang goes out to find their pumpkin friend named Jack. This weekend they found him! Ducky, Pembleton and the rest of the gang are so excited to have Jack back.

Jack has not been carved yet, but they all have their thinking caps on and are coming up with ideas. How do you think Jack should be carved?

(Leave your ideas in the comment box!)

Here are some pictures from last year. They went with the traditional look.

Happy DUCKTOBER!

One night while sleeping, Ducky heard a noise. He noticed a dim glow from the kitchen. Someone was looking in the fridge. He woke Pembleton up and told him he saw a light in the kitchen. Pembleton looked over, saw nothing, and told Ducky go back to sleep. Ducky was sure he saw something. Then he heard crunching noises coming from the living room and whispers of his favorite sitcom on TV. He woke Pembleton up again. This time Pembleton was super grumpy, heard nothing, and told Ducky he better go back to sleep.

The next morning, Pembleton went to get his favorite morning treat- Raisin Bran, but there were only crumbs inside. Pembleton knew Ducky didn’t eat his cereal, because Ducky hates Raisin Bran. Then Pembleton heard a whimper. Someone had eaten Ducky’s favorite cereal too! In the living room, they noticed the pillows and blanket on the couch were rumpled.

Convinced someone must have snuck into the house the night before, the boys came up with a plan. Pembleton got a cardboard box and cut out an eye hole for their stakeout. They would stay up all night, to catch the cereal thief.

Later that night, while Ducky was snoozing in the box, Pembleton, struggling to stay away, heard a noise. He poked Ducky, “Shh, be quite Ducky, someone is in the house.” They both stood very still and looked out the peep hole. Then they saw the intruder, a fat little rat wearing a green felt hat with a feather. They tip toed their box closer, before jumping out and wrestling the intruder to the ground.

“Who are you? And why did you take our food?” shouted Ducky.

“I mean no harm. Please don’t hurt me”, whimpered the little rat.

“We won’t hurt you, but who are you?” Pembleton said trying to calm the little guy.

“My name is Rumpelstiltskin, and I’m just a lonely, hungry mouse.”

“A mouse?” Ducky and Pembleton said skeptically in unison.

“Yes, a mouse, without a house or food or family! I like coming to your cozy house, because you have good snacks and cable.”

“You know you didn’t have to sneak in.” Pembleton said. “All you had to do was ask.”

“Really?”

“Really” said Ducky. “But we need to know, so we have enough snacks for everyone.”

From then on, Rumpelstiltskin came to visit every night and Ducky and Rumpelstiltskin became fast friends often making mischief together. Pembleton, was a little slower to warm up to the “mouse” in their house, but eventually he became friends too.

Every day the Lambs, work hard to make lunch for Ducky, Pembleton, and the rest of the gang. But 7 minutes before lunch, Ducky ordered 10 PB&J sandwiches with 4 sides of potato salad all for himself, even though he knew Monday is eggplant parmigiana day. That was the straw that broke the camel’s back. The lambs stomped out of the kitchen declaring a strike.

Approximately 8 minutes later and one minute passed lunch time, a starving Ducky apologized and they all ate eggplant parmigiana together.

We have had enough!

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.
