It is exciting. Suitcases are showing up. Humans are packing. Dogs are arriving here. Human neighbors are coming to meet the dogs. I think we are going on a family vacation. I, Zeb the Duck, Soapy Smith Duck, and Bucket Duck, are all going with our humans. I am not sure if you know Bucket. His human is the son and grandson of the other humans. Bucket’s human parents like basketball a lot. His dad and friends shoot baskets, or buckets. That is how Bucket Duck got his name. Bucket’s two dogs and Soapy’s one dog will stay at my house while we are on vacation. This trip did not have an easy beginning. Our airport transportation was to get us at 3:00 a.m. When we got up,there was almost a foot of new snow here. Then at Denver International Airport, over 300 flights, including ours, were cancelled. Our rescheduled flight was delayed three times. The news for Denver was a little chilly.
Then another airline and another flight scheduled. Soon we were in Philadelphia. They have a very nice airport. What is this?
Dogs come here? Well, if dogs are now traveling, this is a necessary area.
We, the Colorado Traveling Ducks have never seen this before. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is a very important city in the history of the United States. Among other things, the Liberty Bell is here. This is a replica of the Liberty Bell, crack included, made of Legos.
This airport has museum type exhibits. This is Transforming Glass by Justin Tyner.
So many humans are now taking photographs, and many photos of themselves. This is a suggested location for a “selfie”.
While waiting for our next flight, we relax on the armrests of a chair, by the Christmas tree, and look out at a wet, cold, Philadelphia.
We left Philadelphia, flying south. Now we are in a warm place and the humans say, “ducks, we are going on a boat.” Oh good! Let’s try that sail boat.
But humans say “No. Let’s get on that cruise ship” Can you believe it?? All the times we talked to Santa, we asked to go on a cruise, and Santa said Yes! The humans have cruised before, but this is the first cruise for the Colorado Traveling Ducks. We have so much to show you. See you soon.
