My dogs are giving me $#!+.
Yep, everyone with multiple dogs must at one time or another think: "there has got to be a market for this."
I am getting really good at it though. That is removing the frozen concotion from the frozen tundra without damaging my pooper scooper blade. They make those out of cheap flimsy aluminum. Maybe that works in Georgia. But in NE Ohio.... So I have this garden tool that is kind of like a hoe, but is half-moon shaped and I bent it just so, and it works like a dream. The little spade does better to pick it up though. The big thing doubles as a walking stick for navigating snowing, icy areas in search of the night's produce.
So out with my shovel and spade on Sunday morning -- Sunday I sing Poo-hymns instead of Poo songs while performing the duty. And I have to hit it just so to break it from the ice below, so that I get all of the poo and the absolute minimum of ice and snow. It is a skill that I cannot put on my resume, and I cannot earn a title for it, but it is detrimental to the trade.
My neighbors know I am nuts.
I guess I should just be happy that everyone is providing me with solid poos.
Keeping them clean when the melts come is always fun. I have eliminated mud from their runs effectively, which means that if they are dirty, it would be poo. So getting all I can get is essential to keeping them clean.
I also do not like the idea of them dragging poocicles in with them for a late night snack.
No chance at using the hose either -- if I could get it to spew forth water, in an hour or so it would freeze and injure me and the dogs.
Ok, I am done venting.
