geeses to pieces

I know this is a legitimate business and as such, I shouldn't laugh, but it just strikes me as extremely hilarious. I know the geese can be a serious PITA, but using the dogs seems like the sort of system we employ here in the Fall with leaves: we blow our leaves into the neighbor's yard and let THEM worry about them.

K9 dog: "I work for the police, sniffing out drugs and bombs. What do you do?"
Border Collie: "I scare the bejesus out of geese."

This may make no sense...I'm deep into the Dickel...have been talking to Jeff on the cellphone, but had to comment.

We called the little calling cards the geese left behind "goose mines" where I used to work. The sidewalks were covered in the little black and green turds! Having a dog around to run them off toward the ponds and woods would have been great!

Nothing smarter than a Border Collie!

No, it makes total sense, and like I said, I know it's a legit business, but it's like you're shooing the birds onto someone ELSE's property...LOL! Much like the asshole neighbors who let their roosterS and hen come into my yard and I had a HELL of a time getting rid of them a few years ago. I'll give you a clue as to how it ended: bang! bang! bang! and I felt bad because they weren't my animals to begin with.

That's interesting. I don't have a pond here so if a goose came here that would just be strange, or dinner.

You can train those damn dogs to herd anything. Next, crackheads. You can see that can't ya? A dog herding crackheads from the sidewalk in front of some business where they've taken up residence. beautiful.

Man, I almost killed myself hitting a goose landmine in the grass while on a dead run and rounding a corner - Go Fido!!!
Gee, I kinda like FHB's idea, too.
