A Job for Cinnamon: Dealing with Goose Poop

Here's one of the Geese Guy dogs.
He goes after them in the water!
I was reading the KGW website (because I am bored here taking care of two geriatric dogs) and noticed an exciting new job for ME!

Evidently there is a problem in Portland with geese who are really gross. They poop all over the place, even where humans want to lay down a blanket and enjoy things like concerts.

They are considering using DOGS to deal with the problem. Of course, they are thinking of sheep dogs because everyone thinks they are so smart.

But what about HOUNDS LIKE ME? They are considering hiring Geese Guys because they have a track record in dealing with issues between humans and geese. According to Geese Guys, "one adult Canada goose consumes 3 - 4 pounds of grass and creates 2 to 3 pounds of droppings per day!" What a mess!
This is what a Geese Hound looks like.
Prettier than a Border Collie, right?

So what to do, what to do? I think I need to create a new business.... "Geese Hounds." My houndy friends and I can go crazy chasing away geese. I know we could do that. And we'd be cheaper than the border collies. Aroooo! In fact, if the geese don't bite, I'd do it for free!

Those border collies think they know everything. Just don't get me started!

Meanwhile, I think I'll take a nap and consider my new business venture later.

Love, Cinnamon


  1. I's barked ducks off before, pretty sure gooses would be da same.

  2. Dogs are a great way to scare off geese.


Thanks for your comment. Love, Cinnamon
