Please, no mouse in the house!

So tonight as I was making dinner my neighbor, Meredith, knocked on my door and told me that when her parents' dog was peeing on a bush in my yard she noticed a small, dead mouse.
Let me clarify a few things-
1- Yes, my neighbor is also named Meredith, and she also happens to be a Guidance Counselor at the High School in the same district as me. She also has a 14 year old Schnauzer named Demi, that Carter about dies to get to.
2- Yes, I did say that her parents' dog was peeing on a bush in my lawn...thats the suburbs for ya- close living quarters!
3- I now have to shovel up this dead mouse with a snow shovel so little Carter doesn't eat it! Snow shovel you ask? Well, I am still working at building up my lawn gear so I gotta do what I gotta do! I've never shoveled a rodent before. I know youre all surprised by this.
4- Meredith also shared that she has had a few mice in her basement. This does not make me happy. I am not afraid of mice, but I certainly don't want to share my house with them. Nor do I want to kill them. Lets keep our fingers crossed that the little mice stay outside, ok?

Well, thats my homeowner update for today. I hope to have some "before and after" pics to post this weekend.

Maybe I could help? I kill mice on a weekly basis. Sure I first start the long process by injecting them with metastatic melanoma, waiting two weeks for them to get good and sick. Next I gas them and rip their lungs out. I'm like the mouse Mafia. Let me know if you need me :)
