Viscous Dogs. Exactly what do you mean?

We have a septic system and employ a company to inspect the system 3 times per year in order to satisfy the requirements of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ). In looking over the contract they sent to us, I was struck by this sentence: "Unhindered access (viscous dogs, locked gates, etc) to the system is the responsibility of the User/Homeowner."

Viscous means "having a thick, sticky consistency between solid and liquid". I don't think I should be responsible for viscous dogs. The TCEQ might ought to be notified regarding viscous dogs. That sounds like failure in the environmental quality.

Just saying...


  1. Haven't you heard? Proper spelling is for loosers. I read it on the Internet.
    - - - - - - - -
    dog beds and more

  2. I think you'll be fine as long as you have all-weather dogs. Sometimes, the ones who can't adapt between intense changes between heat and cold don't have the right viscosity, and then they pose a problem for visiting workmen.

    Too funny!
