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!
