On the heels of National Dog Day I’d like to shared this update on a former post:

The disgruntled residents of Tibroningham may rest easier tonight knowing that Self Appointed Pooper-scooper Sherri M. is hard at work making our world a cleaner place to live. Earlier this week, quite unexpectedly, the girls and I chanced upon a sizable plump plastic sack resting on the side of the trail.

When I thanked her for her generous act of kindness, Sherri said, “You don’t need to thank me. It’s the one thing in the world that upsets me that I can control. I do it for me. It’s all about aesthetics.”

Relying upon her trusty sidekick Daisy to sniff out those hard-to-find culprits disguised as twigs and small branches further proved the pair’s dedication to returning the mountain to its once pristine, natural state. 

Two days later, we unexpectedly caught the indefatigable dynamic duo diligently expanding their collection campaign to wrappers, bottles, and other miscellaneous crap items

This writer commends the unpretentious couple – bona fide champions of change –not only for not sitting in judgment of the careless pet owners who ignore their civic dookies duties, but for their contribution to making our world a clean and beautiful place without expecting anything in return.

Thank you again Sherri and Daisy!
Aren’t you happy that no one in town has a pet elephant?

Now I further invite you to visit UNLOAD and UNWIND’s Funny Weekend Challenge dedicated this week to animals and their wild antics.

    Well done Sherri and Daisy and you too Miss Donna for putting it in print….perhaps it will inspire the masses!


  2. Ha! Loved this! The ending reminds me of the same thing my father used to say to me. I rescued stray kittens, dogs, birds on a weekly basis. He always proclaimed, “Thank goodness elephants don’t get lost!” Thanks for bringing that back to me on a day I needed it! xo

    Tibroningham sounds like a place Gulliver visited in his Travels. If so, it could very well be a place where the people keep pet elephants. And lions and tigers, oh my.

    You rock Sherri and Daisy (German Drahthaar?). I worked a bit on picking up garbage at our lake in France one year while walking the dog…..until I stuck myself with a rusty fish hook and had to spend the rest of the day searching for a tetanus shot. Tell Sherri to be careful out there!


  5. Lyn says:

    Donna, next time you see Sherri and Daisy, you can tell them they’re world famous and that we applaud them. Well done you for giving them credit.


  6. How wonderful that someone cares to keep the area beautiful and nice for hikes!


  7. Jenni says:

    This is wonderful and I would love it if you would consider making it part of my Weekend Funny Challenge as I’m focusing on animals this time round. Loved the photo comparing sizes and well done to the diligent doggy doodoo destroyer.


  8. Inspiring and amusing in equal measure, Donna. Of course, Harvey Milk’s first great political success came from removing dog poop from the parks of San Francisco.
