Default Variety is the Spice of Life

Thought just struck me.....
.....that as the owner of a great little mini digger I get asked to do all sorts of job
Last year or so has seen a run of foundations for extensions, associated drainage and water main trenches, driveway dig outs, garden ponds, landscape clearances, etc etc
A year or so ago I dug a nice little grave for a neighbours dog
Talk about repeat business.....
.....I am due to go back when their other dogs go to the big kennel in the sky.
This evening they text me - asking me to do the same for a friend in the next village.
Now is there a gap in the market for Dog Graves

Isn't there loads of red tape regarding burying people willy nilly?

Must be a wealthy area before they hire a digger man in to dig a grave for dog, everyone knows they are not cheap

Yes very sad, still remember when we lost Bruce. Faithful old collie that we grew up with as kids
Speaking to SWMBO, had even thought of offering bit more of a service, so to speak. Little cross etc

Yes very wealthy and they don't like getting their hands dirty
Thing is before I had a nice digger thought nothing of digging holes by hand....
.....and still have to when we do 'safe digging' procedure
