Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!!
What is green, smells like lavender, and is biodegradable? Check at the end of my post for the answer to this seriously tricky riddle!
I hope I don’t have to remind you how important it is to pick up after your pup, even on a day like St. Patrick’s Day. Being green is in, not just on St. Patrick’s Day, so do the green thing and pick up after your pup. This time of year is the absolute worst around my area as all that snow buried poop is coming back as the snow melts and it is not only an eye sore, and ugly mess, but an environmental hazard. People, please simply #scoopthatpoop. It is you duty as a dog owner!
If you really are one of those people that doesn’t walk their dog and is too lazy to pick up the poop in the yard any time of the year, how about a poop service? I live in the Twin Cities, so I can only talk about a service I know of in my area. At the Pet Expo last month, I stopped by and chatted with Gail at the Pet Yard Pick-Up booth. She “kindly” put some of her poop piles on the floor for me to pose with along with her sign. Pet Yard Pick-Up offers many different services for picking up your yard. They don’t have prices on their website as they need to find out your individual needs before they can quote you a price. The price depends on how many dogs you have, how often you want them to come by, what you feed your dogs, and some other information. They also do a spring clean up which is ideal right about now. Most cities in the US have these type of services, so if you really can’t scoop that poop on your own, at least have a service do it for you!
As luck would have it on this St. Patrick’s Day, there is green gold at the end of the rainbow. Yes, we are giving away #EarthRated bags or Frost Fingers gloves! If you didn’t already guess, EarthRated bags is the answer to my little riddle at the beginning of the post. To enter fill out the Rafflecopter below.
Disclaimer: I was not asked to do a review for Pet Yard Pick-Up, nor am I being compensated for promoting them. I simply see it as a good option to get poop in a place where it belongs, not on the ground. Mom handles my poop, I have not used this service myself.
It’s the third Monday of the month, which means it is time for the #ScoopThatPoop blog hop, hosted by Sugar the Golden Retriever, cohosted by, of course, me, Emma the GBGV on poop patrol, Oz the Terrier, and Pawsitively Pets. Join in to find out more about this stinky subject and help us spread the word to clean up after your pup!
