Intern stuck with poo

With a child-sized gardening hoe in hand, I swiped at the feces as the summer breeze pushed the stench up into my nostrils.
I started to gag. This was my first On The Job assignment as a Register intern, filling in for reporter Melissa Topey, who is on vacation.
She picked a great week. Within 10 minutes, I was staring to hope my first On the Job would be my last.
But I’m not a quitter. I tried to gently lift the poop, but I missed and instead stabbed at the heaping pile left by a Boxer. Flies were swarming, but I had to keep going.
