aPaws 7th Annual Pooper Scooper Convention and Turd Herding Contest - October 16-18, 2009
Date:9/15/2009

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Sept. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Pooper Scooper convention? You mean picking up dog poop? That's right! And not only that, but it's the 7th annual Pooper Scooper convention coming to Nashville, Tennessee on the weekend of the 16th of October. The Association of Professional Animal Waste Specialists (aPaws), a 501(c)(6) non-profit trade organization, has hosted this special event every year since its formation in 2002. The purpose is to provide continuing education specifically for professional pooper scoopers from around the country. Not only does aPaws make this event available for its growing membership, but they encourage the more than 800 professional pooper scoopers nationwide to join in the fun. This year's lineup includes motivational speaker Kirk Weisler (http://www.kirkweisler.com), Chief Morale Officer and author of several books, including "The Dog Poop Initiative," local certified AdWords specialist - Stacia Holdren, and from "America's Got Talent" - first-round semi-finalist Tony Hoard and his Friz-B K-9s.

aPaws is also involved in raising money to help provide pet air masks to fire departments and EMS Personnel. The cone-shaped plastic masks, which come in three sizes and fit snugly on snouts, can resuscitate animals suffering from smoke inhalation. This year aPaws will be presenting 2 sets to the Nashville Fire Department. For more information on the pet recovery masks, and how you can support the efforts to provide these masks, visit http://www.apaws.org.

What in the world is a turd herding contest? It's what every professional pooper scooper looks forward to each year. It's the Scooper Bowl for pooper scoopers ... a contest to find out who the fastest pooper scooper in the nation is. Sometime during the convention, dozens of fake dog poops are placed around the grounds of the hotel and they see who can pick up the most piles in two minutes. And they take this event seriously! In fact, due to some unfortunate circumstances in past contests, aPaws board members have had to modify the rules to include penalties for body checking the competition. The top three winners each receive a trophy, cash prizes and bragging rights ... at least until next year!
