    A Clay County teenager got a shout out from Mike Rowe for a Dirty Jobs-inspired business he started when he was 12.

    Kyle Graham said Dirty Jobs inspired him to get his hands dirty and start his own pooper scooper business in 2015 called Call of Doodie.

    The Oakleaf Junior High seventh grader cleans up dog poop from people's backyards once a week for $40 a month. He also offers one-day services if customers don't need regular clean ups.

    "It is my sworn duty to help you win the war against your backyard duty," his website reads

    His business earned him enough money to buy his own fishing boat.

    He sent Rowe a note and got a response from him on Facebook.
