Money well spent

Tue Apr 10, 2007 Miss Vicky 

As I type this, two guys are in our backyard, wearing strange Ghostbuster-like getups. No, it's not a Hazmat crew. Well, kind of....


They're the fine folk from Poopermaster, a local company that saves dog owners from what is the worst part of spring. As one of the residents of Miss Vicky's Finishing School is a 120lb German Shepherd named Winston, you can imagine what her yard looks like once the snow melts.

The jet-pack like devices they're wearing are, I'm assuming, a form of leafblower set on reverse and attached to bags they use to dispose of, well, you know.

Is it weird that I'm very happy about this?

Hard to tell even from the bigger photo but they look kind of like a shop vac converted to a back pack

I think the poop be gone folks paying you a visit would be a definite "spring is here" kind of thing. And that's always good.

We have used a different company for about 8 years now - The Poop Squad - they always rake our lawn as well and it looks amazing. They cost more than $50.00 but the end result is great. Do you have an "after" picture? I would like to see if they do as good a job.....I am assuming they take away the poop - did they tell you what they do with it? I tried to go on their website and it isn't running anymore - do you know if they are still in business?

I don't... they didn't rake, though. That's a nice service! We didn't use them this year, so they may be out of business.

Correction! They are still in business! We had an email telling us their site was down for a while but they are up and running. And just in time, too!
