    I had an after hrs. "Emergency" call to bury a dead dog on a "SUNDAY"!!!!!!!!!
    I get there right at the 2 hrs. and they had already dug and were giving the ceremony when I pulled up...

    funny thing about it is it was directly across from a cemetary...

    Once had a ticket to bury dog, only when I got to the house the dog wasn't dead yet. A very old, sickly dog was limply laying on the front stoop and the homeowner said he'd be put to sleep in the next few days. Poor old dog didn't know what was coming his way....

    Goddamn, it sounds like you guys have crosses to bare to with those depressing locates...

    To cheer things up, I recently saw a ticket for removing a beaver dam.

    "Excavate to remove beaver dam. There is a tel manhole in the area."

    LOL

    I've had multiple tickets for burying horses. Sad thing is they are usually called in before the animal is down. It's easier to lead the animal in and euthanize it IN the hole you see...

    Worst one I've seen was an emergency request for digging out a guy that had the walls collapse on him in a 30ft trench...we never figured out who called in the request...the assumption was emergency services...the contact listed was the county.

    That's pretty sad. Good for him for being specific on the dig area. I always tried to specifically thank people who did that.
