    I just got the call. it seems a good customers little poochie has passed away in the night.

    she said she called me because she just didn't know who else to call. she is elderly and I don't doubt she needs some help.

    so I told her I'd be over there shortly and take care it for her.

    as cold as it is there isn't much else going on.......... :cry:

    Gedd would charge her 150 bucks and then tell her to take care of her pets better

    My sister made the same call last Saturday. Her cat died and she could not get a hole dug (bad back). She called the guy that does her "landscape" odds & ends. He came over and helped her.

    First of all that is illegal and you being a cop should know that.

    I do have a request...

    Can you jump in the hole with it!

    I bet the dog was killed by a crooked cop, who returns for cash to bury it...!

    interesting, another cop breaking the law.........how can you be sure the animal is dead? are you a veteranarian? can you provide burials, without a license? and is it within city ordinance to bury carcasses on ones property where she lives?
