Million Dollar Duck Race



On August 6, approximately 25,000 rubber ducks took the plunge into the East River and raced from the Brooklyn Bridge to South Street Seaport for the 2008 Duck Race! The race was a charity benefit for the Special Olympics. It was quite a spectacle watching all the ducks as they made a mad dash for the finish line. We adopted a few ducks for the race. Although our ducks did not finish first, we had a spectacular time rooting them on.

The Ducks Prepare to go to Seattle for Duckfest



Only a few more days untill Seattle and Duckfest! Cheese, HiYa, Tips, and Smiley Ducks will be some of the flock who will be heading west to take Seattle by storm. Vegas Baby will also join them….a last minute addition after finding out that there are casinos to be seen between the hotel and the actual location of Duckfest (just outside Seattle). Duck Satriani will be going to see the Experience Music Project Museum. They will be quacking all over Seattle. Stay tuned for pictures.

Of course, the most exciting part of the trip is the day of Duckfest. The traveling flock will be excited to search out new members for the flock at Duckfest. Stay tuned for pictures of all the rubber duckiness and quackery of Duckfest 2008!

Flying the Friendly Skies


The Ducks go to Central Park


After a long winter the weather suddenly got nice out, so the ducks decided to waddle through Central Park today.

“What a nice day to buzz around the park.”

“Ahh, a nice shady place out of the sun.”

Carnie ducks go to the Amsterdam Ave street festival in NYC


“What’s a two headed duck gotta do to get a funnel cake around here?”

“A street fair wouldn’t be complete without some sort of deep fried cookie/snack cake/candy bar.”

Quack Remedy? “Step right up to Dr. Pickle! We’ve got the cure for you!”

“Heehee! I am a quack up at the street festival with all my clowning around.”

Duck Soup for the Soul


I have been listening to this song called “All the Same” that makes me smile and inspired this picture: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PpzkHhgcZG4

National Tartan Day


This weekend the ducks went out to celebrate National Tartan Day. The first thing they did was head over to the Haggis cart for a snack before the parade.

It was such a nice day that Scotty decided to go for a swim in a fountain along the way. ” Scuze me while I take a quick dip-it has been a long winter.”

Before the parade Seumas warms up with some other pipers.

And Scotty gets a picture with a fellow Scotsman.

 

Let It Snow


“A friendly game of street hockey, anyone?”

Duckhound


The Annual Westminster Dog Show is this week at Madison Square Garden. Is there an occasion that I don’t have a duck for? I doubt it.

Rubber Duckie 911



“Yeah, I’ve been working this beat for about a year now….

“Do I write many tickets? We don’t have quotas anymore. We used to have quotas, but now we’re allowed to write as many tickets as we want. I think I’ll grab a quick snack here.”

“Sometimes people want a warning. I say, OK I’m warning you not to do that again or I’ll give you another ticket.”

“You definitely have to have pretty thick skin, or else these people will walk all over you.”

“Sometimes upholding the law is messy, but you get by…one day at a time….”
