We're a bit beyond the dog days of summer, but not at Progressive Field. As part of the Cleveland Indians' Puppypalooza -- where a dog-owner can bring his or her canine to the game Thursday, August 26 -- our PUP program will take center stage when our own Wally Waterdrop will throw out the first pitch. Might be tough to toe the rubber with no toes, though.
We don't typically allow dogs on our facility grounds unless (1) they are official guide dogs, or (2) they are official spokesdogs for Sewer District programs. At our Open House at the Easterly Wastewater Treatment Plant August 7, we had the latter.
Zack and Harley (below) and Smokey, three of our employees' dogs, donned their PUP-pledge bandanna and got along very nicely with our 300+ guests.
We're proud to support Cleveland Metroparks Zoo's Scoop on Poop event going on now through September: As their site promotes, the zoo "takes a tactful approach to the topic, using both science and humor." And we love their new radio spot. Poop jokes. Always funny.
Wally Waterdrop and his dog Pup represent the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District's Pick Up Poop campaign to help the environment (and hey, promote politeness, too).
