    Dog tag + an extra item found and returned !

    On Saturday my daughter called and asked me if I could find two dog tags for her girlfriends dog. Shortly after that, my metal detecting partner called to see where we would go on our usual Sunday outing. I had told him about the request to find the dog tag, and he agreed to meet me at the persons home at 7:30 a.m. I had arrived first, and started on the West side of the yard ( the wrong side ) and my detecting partner arrived shortly after me and started on the East side of the yard ( the right side ). After he fired up his detector, the tags were found within 3 minutes. The dogs tag was custom made with a value of $20.00 The Rabies tag was also $20.00 but the real value was because this was this young ladies first dog. She had purchased the beautiful Chocolate Lab - German Short Hair Pointer mix a month after her mom had passed away from cancer in her mid 50's. She felt the need to have some companionship after the loss of her mom. The story gets even better. We then continued to hunt the yard of this 1950 home, and found nothing else of value - or so we thought. I managed to dig one of those older metal flower tags that are green, with the initials JP on it. After showing it to this young lady she about went into tears and said those were my moms initials ! I then gladly passed the flower tag on to her also. I do believe it was her moms way of letting her know she is watching over her. You just have to believe. My daughter Stefanie is shown receiving the 2 dog tags from my detecting partner, as her friend was still in her pajamas at 7:40 a.m. and did not want to be photographed. Kids !! Monetary value , minimal + emotional attachment, much = one very happy young lady !

    Well done mate. Better than scoring some silver for the treasure chest.

    “This Is My Creed I believe first in God, the same God in which my ancestors believed. I believe in Jesus Christ and that he is my saviour. Second, I believe in the Constitution of the Republic of the United States of America, without interpretation, as it was written and meant to work. I have given my sacred oath “to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies foreign and domestic.” I intend to fulfill that oath. Third, I believe in the family unit and, in particular, my family unit. I have sworn that I will give my life, if it is required, in defense of God, the Constitution, or my family. Fourth, I believe that any man without principles that he is ready and willing to die for at any given moment is already dead and is of no use or consequence whatsoever.
