New event proposed to deal with goose poop

| March 23, 2023 1:00 AM

Once again, my wife and I attended the recent Keg Pull. We thoroughly enjoyed it and even entered our three-legged dog this year. He did pretty well.

I started thinking: There must be a way to carry this fun over into summer. Then it came to me. The annual “Goose Poop Pull.”

Owners/handlers start by filling 5-gallon buckets with goose poop. These will be harnessed to the dogs. The race will be from the Snack Shack to the parking lot where a large dump truck will accept the contents. As an added feature, six hunters will be stationed in three blinds. They will be charged with keeping the geese away during the competition. And, an exciting bonus, for a nominal fee, they will also help owners deal with underperforming canines. Sounds good, huh?

Next week; my proposal for the annual “Grizzly Bear Chase.” Of course, hunters will, most likely, not be necessary to deal with the losers.
