Pond Man and Vic the Border Patrol Collie Update



Do you know what your pond man is doing today? He’s shoveling snow, checking on yearly water garden maintenance client’s ponds, and taking Vic for his daily goose-chasing runs, as well as quoting “Home Wiser” jobs for the winter. I bet you thought he was somewhat like Santa Clause and taking a long winter’s nap after a very busy season. Not so.


Vic, our specially-trained Border Collie, still goes for one or two daily runs to annoy the geese who just won’t leave Ohio for the winter, and he only runs when his human (who in this case is our resident pond man) gives him the command to do so. In fact, this is a perfect time to have Denny and Vic on your property, if you still have Canadian Geese hanging around. If they stay all winter and get comfortable, they contact all their friends and relatives for a spring fling and the next thing you know – goslings, galore!! And family reunions are celebrated in your backyard.


If you have a water garden and there are fish in it, you want to make sure there is a hole kept open in the ice all winter. That’s just one of the reasons we offer a year-round water garden maintenance plan. We do the work and you get to enjoy the beauty.


Then there is the “Home Wiser” part of our business. Gotta keep a pond man busy during the deep freeze, so we offer painting, drywalling, tiling, minor plumbing or electrical repair, and built-ins. Need an update around the house? Give us a call using our lucky 777 system – call 330-685-3637 from 7am to 7pm, 7 days a week.
