Chief Dog OFFicer

My pops never liked dogs growing up (weird, right?), but mom negotiated long and forcefully to get me – a handsome, athletic, squirrel-hunting chocolate Cocker Spaniel named Boomer.  The beginning was a little tough (I chewed his Xbox cord), but little did he know he would soon be completely obsessed over me. As I got bigger, Pops got tired of my sh*t – literally. My poor Pops was bending over, sticking his head in the trash can, and sacrificing his Xbox time to scoop poop. I said to Pops, “Pops, your water bowl is half empty. I think this would be a great business idea. Think of the convenience, the clean smell, and a landmine-free yards we can make for kids and families to enjoy.”  Pops immediately recognized my genius, and after negotiating extra pup cups, we had a deal. We went on the interwebs and co-founded Pawsome Clean-Up (my idea). We aim to serve and please every dog and their families all over Charlotte. It would be my pleasure to do business with you!  Let us take care of all your poop-scooping and pet waste removal needs.
