MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - If you work outside in the heat and you think your job stinks, think again. A local company specializing in pet waste removal says they are "On Doody" rain or shine. 

On Doody has been in business since 1999. 

"It's just something I stepped into," said owner Lee Bowling. 

Bowling has 10 people on his scooping staff who work primarily in residential areas picking up what your pets leave behind. Workers complete the smelly job even when the heat index hits triple digits.

Homeowner Rita Hesterman and her dog Larry are loyal On Doody customers.

Hesterman gets a weekly visit and a monthly bill but said the prices are reasonable.

"It's a wonderful service," said Hesterman. "When you walk on the grass you don't want to step in a surprise."

"It's one of those things where you have to have a sense of humor," said Bowling. 

It's a hot job, but someone has to do it. As their mottos goes "dogs don't flush."

"I feel very bad for them but I'm glad it's them and not me," said Hesterman.
