The Oscars, Emmys, Golden Globes… rattle off the best and brightest polished metal Hollywood hands out and it cannot compare with the prestige, honor and elite status that comes with being awarded a DooGooders 2010 Sooper Pooper Award. After seven long dog-months of spring cleans, and after some very intense competition, we can now announce the winners.

Remember, in this competition, Number 2 is #1. So we begin with the runner-up and recipient of the Number 1 Sooper Pooper Award <insert drum roll>… congratulations to Holly H. and her five best friends with more than 35 gallons of stink!

Then, we come to our Number 2 Sooper Pooper, the top dog (in this case, two dogs got the job done) and that goes to Cassie G. and her Great Danes with 40+ gallons, a DooGooders’ record! Way to go, and keep up the good work!  Remember, there are no losers in this doo-rific contest.

We also want to recognize Patty and her furry friends Bella and Zeus with our honorable mention. We got to present Patty with her award today and can’t wait to hear what Bella & Zeus think of the honor they work so hard to earn!

Jolene Loetscher, Chief Doo Officer, presents Patty from MIX 97.3 with her Sooper Pooper award!

In this inagural year of Sooper Poopers, we introduce a second category, awarded to our most creative dookie (doo+cookies=dookies) eaters.  Last month, we delivered the doolightful treats to friends around town, and dared them to take pics or video eating them.   Honorable mention goes to Tigh L. and crew.  Check out their winning video below.  This was just too doo-sturbing to win it all.

The winning entry and our Number 2 award goes to Melissa H. and the team!

Our winners receive a custom-made turd trophy with a 9kt gold poo pile (ok, we didn’t really paint it with gold, but it sure sounds good). Be watching for more pictures as we delivery the trophies around town.

What a busy season so far for the DooCrew! We just wrapped up our competition for Sooper Pooper 2010 and later this week will announce the winners of the custom-made turd trophies.

Even though our job may stink, we want to always improve. Watch your e-mail for a survey about ways we can improve.

Finally, mark your calendar for Bark for Life which will be May 15, 2-4pm at Spencer Park in Sioux Falls. DooGooders is proud to support this event which benefits the American Cancer Society. While there, enjoy the contests, games, raffle for a great dog house and get a picture with your pooch by Emily Eggebraaten Photography. Be watching for more details!

DooGooders is officially rained out today. If you were scheduled for service today, we’ll get to your yard tomorrow, (Wednesday April, 7, 2010). Hope you and your pooch stay dry!

About DooGooders™

DooGooders™, the area’s leading dog doo removal service, cleans residential yards and commercial properties around Sioux Falls.  As a commitment to community and families, DooGooders™ gives seven-percent of all sales back to local charities.

The Scoop (not scoopers) feels a little ignored lately. The DooCrew continues to put in some crazy days to keep up with the doozies our long winter left behind.  Thanks to all our new DooGooders families (we bet that fresh backyard will be nice this weekend when you realize it’s a tootsie roll and not something else you stepped on!).  We continue to receive questions about our schedule, and our timeline remains on track with what you received in your initial e-mail for set up.

To speed up cleanings, the DooCrew hopes to soon expand its staff.  In the mean time, we wanted to add Drew and Jay from Brandon (along with their four-legged pals Brooke and Rocky) to our honorary DooCrew. They might know some of the DooGooder’s jingles better than Pile, our mascot, who wrote them!
