This little guy started it all for me.  
 

 
I was working away from home and staying at a hotel near Roanoke, Virginia. Every time they cleaned your room, they left a rubber duck on the bathtub. (Though after staying there for several weeks, they stopped doing it every day.) That was about 10 years ago.  
 
In the beginning, I collected every duck I could get my hands on. Then I moved abroad to the UK and had to cut my collection significantly. Now I only mainly collect logo ducks.

OMGosh MonkeyDuck! That little duck was one of my first ducks also! I was living in Vegas at the time so I name it "Vegas Baby." Haha. I took it all over Vegas taking pics of it for this flickr group. The duck is so sentimental to me. I wrote my phone # on the bottom of it just in case I ever lost it!

My first duck, Space BUD duck, I got from my boyfriend. In my first year of aerospace engineering, 6 years ago
The problem was the paper inside the box with all the different designs. I just needed to get them all.  Smiley
I now have around 400 rubber ducks and only missing 2 standard BUDs and some CRUKs

I'm missing the two most difficult ones, as another bud duck with the same name exists already:  
Angel (so the baby blue one) and Decorator (the brown one), ow yay and Louis Vuitton.

I was wondering if it was the angel duck. I know some people searched a very long time to find it. There is a guy on here named mussion that sells the lv duck. I bought one from him not too long back. Far as I know, he still had some left.
