Since were on the subject of poop, I thought i'd share a story...I was doin a cleanup for this woman this fall. I noticed this awful smell when cleaning the front. As I got to the back the smell just got worse and worse. I started to blow off the patio in the back, and when I got to this corner, there was a huge mountain of poop. It was disqusting! There had to be over a hundred pieces of it!

we been scooping 11 years now in st. louis. There is alot of lawn care business that like the idea we pick up the poop before you all get there.

and quite a few of you all won't do some yards at all unless the poop is pick up. so its seems like you guys must loveeeeeeeee
us somewhat......

Debbie.....

I read an article about your yucky company in a St Louis paper or something like that and they were saying you make 6 figures a year?? Are those all in front of the decimal point?? How many people work for you. In the picture I only saw you and the executive pooper picker upper or something like that.

Just curious as to some info about your company.

You see a problem with giving customers who have dogs a card & collecting a small fee if that scooper service is hired? I have this arrangement with gutter cleaners, drive sealers, window cleaners, & also refer a roofing co. sans comm because owner is a realative.
