A Couple of Pups Keep Leaving a Nasty Surprise. One Clever Mailman Decides to Take His Revenge on the Poop-pretuators.

Summary:

Residents of a town in Colorado have had it. They have been fighting a smelly, obnoxious battle with pet owners. As people walk their dogs, they have let their pets poop next to the mailboxes along the street. One poor postman is forced to dodge smelly piles as he tries to deliver the mail. For the residents and the postman, the situation has become unbearable.

Introduction:

In a small town, little problems can quickly spiral out of control. For neighbors like Toni Hazlip, dog poop has become the bane of her existence. Each day, pet owners walk their dogs next to the mailboxes on

Finally, some of the residents gave up and started to clean the dog poop on their own. Even with the clean up efforts, checking the mail has remained a smelly experience. Every time the neighbors go to get the mail, the entire street smells like dog poop. New piles are constantly discovered by accidentally stepping in the excrement. As the least observant residents, the children have fallen in dog poop on more than one …show more content…
The generous mailman decided that his winnings would be put to good use. Instead of going on a vacation, he paid for a dog-friendly park to be built in the neighborhood. It would have special doggie toilers as well as pathways for pet owners to walk. Instead of wandering along the streets, pet owners would have a comfortable park to wander around.

One of the things Mark loved about being a mailman was seeing the surprise on someone's face as they received a package. He loved when children ran out to meet him and check the mail. He did not need a vacation to be fulfilled. Now that the poop problem was solved, Mark could return to being a mailman again. He decided to keep his job and continue beautifying his neighborhood. As a gesture of gratitude, the neighborhood decided to name the dog park after Mark.

Conclusion:

Mark was certainly a big winner, but he was not the only person to win. More than 1,531 players have won since the promotion started a month ago. Since the casino has already paid out more than $2,191,843 from free spins, the promotion is expected to end

    Squish, squash, and splat are some of the noises heard as if someone would walk through piles of feces, urine, and other bodily fluids like they would walk through a yard on a snowy blizzard day. Dogs loudly barking, howling, growling, whining trying to be heard by a savior to rescue each one from the horrid abuse. Each dog that lives at a puppy mill does not live at all as most are matted with fur, covered in feces from the dog living in the cage above them, crusted eyes shut, and even diseases. Bial acknowledges that “puppy mills keep breeding dogs in overcrowded, shabby, and unsanitary cages-often rows of cages stacked on top of each other. To make waste cleanup easier, the cages have wire floors that injure paws and legs” (Bial 12).…

    Most are direct descendants of their feral canine ancestors, a "breed" much older than any AKC breed. With the recent increase in popularity among Indians of full breed dogs, more and more street dogs are abandoned pets or have bred with pet breeds. We are beginning to see an increasing number of stray dogs and cats as many of our countrymen are not interested of keeping pets. It is all the more painful to see children teasing these poor animals and making their pathetic lives all the more miserable. Millions of them died in car accidents, many died from hunger and many died due to natural hazards such as rainfall, cold climate etc but we never feel pain of those homeless souls.…

    When a breed of dog goes out of “style” the mothers are often shot, abandoned, or even starved to death until they eventually die. There are many more reasons why puppy mills are awful and should be shut down. As we filter through this abundance of evidence we realize that because of these three reasons, puppy mills are not safe. I gave so many facts that explain why puppy mills are awful and cannot be trusted. So many dogs die each day at puppy mills and that just breaks my heart because every dog deserves a wonderful life full of running, playing, and eating.…

    Among this number, children are the most common victims of such attacks. The irresponsibleness of pet owners not restraining their dogs is what leads to such problems in neighborhoods.

It is the most irritating feeling when my dogs are so happy to go for a walk, then I 'm barely 5 houses past mine when I see the first dog, this requires having to pick up my dogs and holding one in each arm while they are barking, going crazy, and a loose dog chasing me. Then, I have to walk for about five minutes with my arms asleep and scratches all over me from carrying my dogs.…
