Probably shouldn't tell this... but..

I have debated the last couple of weeks whether or not to pop the guard off of my stihl trimmer. I have some places that are a pain to get a push mow into so I decided this morning to take the guard off and cut down on some time. I get to my third property this morning and mow, get out my no-guard trimmer and go at it. This prop has a fenced in back yard with some dogs. I go to trim in the corner of where the picket fences meet, and there was a hidden, moist pile of dog doo there. I had the stihl pegged out when I hit it, and dog crap went all over me. Even on my face! I went to the hydrant and hosed off but it didn't do much good. I had to come home and shower, then go to my next property. I think I tasted some of it.

Same here. Just make sure, if you ever take it in to get worked on to put it back on.

I hate to admit this, but I took some DS in the eye last year. My helper got it in the mouth the following week.

DS

That was good.

So, could you tell what the dog ate by taste or smell and could you tell what kind of dog it was,
you see there exists a proper difference between the types of dog crap, not that you'd care but I
thought I'd mention that smell and taste definitely varies from one pooch to the next which, should
you ever decide to develop your senses so as to better appreciate the gourmet, but I guess not.

Uh oh, I feel karma headed my way.

Always trim with your mouth shut.
