Now I'm back in full swing working with the Poooh Busters crew again to promote responsible pet guardianship, pet care and the general well being of our most beloved creatures.
My first blog upon returning is being sparked by a couple of pictures I posted on our Facebook page. I wanted to show the world what a great thing we were doing cleaning up a new client's winter long poop build up. We get many, many calls from folks who don't get a chance to make it out to the yard or the dog run to scoop the poop throughout our crazy, Calgary winters. In the spring, the snow melts and reveals a rather overwhelming mess.
Most folks realize they let it get out of hand and call us to come help. We are always glad to do so. After all, without these situations we certainly wouldn't have the client base we do!
After posting the before and after pics of a an initial cleaning we did for a dog run, many of our fans expressed a passionate response to what they saw. The original intent of the posting was to show any potential clients who come to visit our page what we can do! We can take a poooh-filled dog run and make it look beautiful again. We just wanted to show a transformation and certainly did not want to put our client's situation on display for public chastisation (is that even a word?).
Now our team sees this kind of thing all the time and to us this was not even close to the worst of what we have seen. Trust me, this particular job took next to no time to do and generated 5 or 6 bags of waste. We go to some places where the massive amounts of poooh has been stepped in because there simply is not any visible ground to walk on! We walk out of some yards 2 or 3 hours later with 20 bags of waste.
To us, this job and all the others we do every Spring was just business as usual (no pun intended). We posted pictures of this particular job because it had a dramatic before and after effect.
So all I ask is please do not judge, we certainly don't. We know that scooping the poop is not something we think about on a regular basis. It's out of sight and out of mind. Simply put, people have so much going on in their lives that it is easy to let it go. Then one day you go out and BAM! The sheer amount of the poop build-up catches you off guard. Hey even the Poooh Busters team can be guilty of not staying on top of their own dog run that is shared by four very large pooches.
Mrs. Big Nate and I rely heavily on the team to come clean our yard every Monday too. If it weren't for them, our yard would have tons of little bombs everywhere from a winter of neglect.
Let he who has never sinned cast the first stone!
