    So today I was driving around town and 2 cars ahead of me was a nice F150 with a lot of graphics on it. So naturally i'm looking at it trying to figure out what kinda business it was because these graphics looked very expencive and well done and the truck was nice, new and clean. So eventually the car infront of me turns and i'm behind the truck, now I'm looking at the sides and there are just brown spots all over it??? and i pull up behind it, the tailgate read DR. POOPER SCOOPER. I'm looking at the screaming WTF? I was amazed!! there slogan was "our duty is to pick up your pets duty" I was in aww. The was a guy on the back with a bag and a shovel!! I can't explain how nice the graphics on the truck looked ether and it was a new body style F150 ext cab 4x4. It also read on the tail gate "$10 per pick up". How does he make any money? and afford that truck? Its hard for me to believe he does that as a hobbie. To top all matters he is out of the richest town in the county Sparta, New Jersey. I wish I had a camera to take a picture of his truck. I think i'm going to some how get a picture of it and post it for you guys. It was truely amazing. But anyway, hell for 10 bucks, i'm refering him to all my accounts that i have a problem with doggy mess. I think he is going to help out my business this year.

    OH WAIT IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME ABOUT THIS GUY, The best part of his truck was he posted his website on the tailgate to.

    I though you guys would be quite interested in this guy.
