“Dog catchers get paid by the pound”

How do dog catchers get paid? A poem was printed in the Indianapolis (IN) News on September 15, 1064:
 
The dog catcher, the butcher,
And the carpenter, I’ve found,
All have one thing in common,
They get paid by the pound. “

   
“Q: How do dog catchers get paid? A: By the pound, of course!” was printed in the Boston (MA) Globe on July 19, 1987. “Bumper Sticker DOG CATCHERS GET PAID BY THE POUND” was printed in The Daily Oklahoman (Oklahoma City, OK) on January 25, 1988.
