All our four legged friends are such lovely souls and it’s such a delight to see them each and every week. We’re there to dispose of the dog poop but we always make sure we spend time with our four-legged clients.

 

They get more and more comfortable with us and crack us up with their different quirks.  This week I wanted to tell you about two very lovely dogs call Zander and Kingston.

 

Zander is an Australian Kelpie and as soon as I arrive to pick up the dog poo, he brings me a toy to kick across the garden. It’s a different toy every single week it’s so funny to watch. He brings the toy over….but not too close…..then he gets really close to the ground waiting for the moment I kick it.  I try and trick him by kicking it in a different direction, but he’s too clever, he knows exactly where its going. That’s kelpie dogs for you!

 

Kingston, the staffy (or Staffordshire Terrier for the full name), lives with Zander but while all this fun is going on, he just watches with his tail wagging.

 

One of my favourite habits is Zander’s escort service. But it’s not what you think! When I arrive he always greets me at the gate. He walks me in, wants a big pat, and lies down while I get on with the poop scooping. When it’s time to go, he trots up and walks me back to the gate. Such a polite dog.

 

And while I say “always”, if it’s raining, forget it!

 

Leave a comment or tell me about your favourite dog breed, and what they do to make you laugh.

Missing Boxer

Last week I went to see the Boxers, Rocco and Junior (as I do every week).

I was greeted by Rocco and he was thrilled to see me, wagging his tail and wanting me to try and get his toy off him.

I couldn’t see Junior, so I thought he must be at the Vets.  I continued on with the job in hand.

When I had finished the job, I saw that there was only one dog food bowl and only ONE bed!  OMG!

I thought to myself, poor Junior has passed away!  So I said goodbye to Rocco, got in the van and I had tears streaming down my face.  I finally pulled myself together before I got to Hugo and Phillipe’s house.

When I arrived home, I thought I would send an email to the Fur Parents and asked what had happened.  When I checked  my emails, there was an email waiting for me…………”sorry, forgot to let you know that Junior is at my Parents house as Rocco is recovering from an Operation”!!!!!  Phew…….

Goodness me!  Next time I will not come to the worst conclusion first.

Hope your pets are keeping warm.

The Poop Scoop Unleashed

We visit a lot of dogs around Perth, scooping their poop and taking it away to leaving a trail of clean backyards, happy dogs and happy owners.

It’s very satisfying but I know you’re wondering how there are any perks to the job.

Well, it’s the dogs we visit  that make it a really fun job. They’re all so gorgeous!

If you are a dog owner you know how different each dog can be. And every dog we visit has it’s own personality.

One of the guys we visit is Zeus. He’s a Rottweiler and such a funny guy. Zeus is HUGE and weighs in at around 55 kilos so he’s not a dog to mess with.

But when we arrive, he cracks us up because he behaves differently depending on whether his Shitzu mate is there or not.

If Zeus is on his own, he is very aloof. He may not even greet me at the gate and will just sun himself by the pool. He’s a total cool-cat (if you’ll excuse the reference). That’s ok though, because it means I’ve got time to get around the yard and remove all the dog poo and when I am done, he’ll reluctantly give me cuddle.

If his Shitzu friend, Cougar, is with him well… Zeus will bark and madly wag his tail (almost bending himself in half) and can’t wait for a cuddle. What a show off!! And if I try to pat Cougar, Zeus will push him out the way.

After we’ve said hello they let me pick up all the poop, but I can be sure that when I turn around; there they are, sitting together watching me. Making sure every thing is being cleaned up properly.

Zeus and Cougar, two very funny guys… You see, there are perks to the job!!

Until next time, Love Your Pooch and Your Garden.

Did you know that dog poop is a huge breeding ground for flies and fleas? What an opener, I know!!

But with summer making it’s presence known, a lot of Poop Scoop customers are getting their property cleared twice a week. This means you don’t have eggs being laid in the dog poop lying around And the garden stays a lot clearer when you’re out there most.

One of our twice-a-week-ers is Marvy, a 1 year old Great Dane and Kuma who is a Grand Ole Rotti Lady.

When I arrive at the house, Kuma will bark a couple of times and then wander off because she can’t be bothered (too old for all that rubbish!!).
Marvy on the other hand, being a young (enormous) whippersnapper, is so delighted and so excited for a big hug that I usually have to push him out of the way so I can get inside!

While I get on with picking up the dog poop, Kuma gets on with a doggie nap but Marvy will follow me around every step of the way (clearly hinting that it would be much better if I gave him more hugs instead of picking up stinky poo!).

Then when the garden is clear, I’ve filled up their bucket of water and it’s time for me to leave, Marvy always rushes to the gate and gives me a look that says “doooon’t leeeeeaaavve meeeeee”. He kills me when he does that, so I try not to look at him in the eye!

Enjoy this gorgeous summer sun!

PS Don’t forget to keep your garden clear as the weather starts warming up. You’ll notice less flies and fleas not to mention a garden you can enjoy!
