Coon Alert!

Scoopy Doo Dog Waste Removal Services has always been a dog (and dog-owner’s) best friend – you won’t find another business that is more hound-centric than Scoopy Doo.  But we are more than just puppies and poodles.  Scoopy Doo is actively involved in cooperative ventures with animal shelters, pet stores, and pet-groom ing salons, as well as community outreach – we’re one of the sponsors of Glen Cove’s annual Howl-o-ween Pet Parade – all with an eye to providing the best in animal welfare.  And now Scoopy Doo Dog Waste Removal Services has officially become Coon Central!

Every night at owner Jim Coniglione’s house in Glen Cove, as the twilight begins to fall, a gang of amiable raccoons gathers on the back porch to share a meal with Big Jim.  His backyard borders the Garvies Point Nature Preserve, and over the years a raccoon or two has wandered in under the fence to grab a discarded hot dog bun or a corn cob.  Jim, always the animal lover, started feeding the hungry little guys, and now he has a nightly posse of raccoons massing around his back door every night.  On peak nights he has counted 19 to 20!

What does he feed them?   What passes for Coon Cuisine?   Well, dry dog food and cat food at first, but then he began to expand their palates, offering them pizza slices, bagels, spaghetti, cannolis…even Easter peeps!   The raccoons love it all – after eating garbage most of the time, this has been a huge culinary upgrade.  Jim has gotten to know the raccoons so well, he’s given them distinctive names:  Don Cheech, Fredo, Clemenza, Tessio, Frankie Five- Angels, Lucabrazzi…sound familiar?  It’s a reincarnation of Corleones. Even one-eyed Moe Green makes an appearance on Jim’s porch.  So next time you think Scoopy Doo Dog Waste Removal Services is just about dogs, remember that coons gotta eat (and poop), too!
