Long Ago Find

#1 Unread post by DSCoins » Sun Jul 28, 2019 3:13 pm

It has been a wile now, 6+ years. It accrued when I had to put my German Shepard down due to cancer. To help me get over the grief of losing her, I went out metal detecting. To this day I can not explain why I found this object. I was doing one last trip from field to my car. I didn't really find any thing, but few pull tabs. About halfway back to the car I got a hit. At first I wasn't going to dig it thinking it was another pull tab, but curiosity got the better of me so I dug it up. What I found acutely took my breath away. Sitting in my hand was a charm in the shape of fire hydrant with I love you inscribed on it. What are the chances of finding that object on that day.

Great find and the shape of the charm was the perfect reminder from your German Shepard.

:greatfind: Would love to see some photos, please post some here. Not far from my property for sale in Athens here there is a really nice beach where I go out metal detecting. It relaxes me a lot, prefer to do on weekends in the evening while there is still some light. So far only one earring was found.

Sorry every one. I didn't realize it had been as long as it was on posting this. But yes I have a couple of photo's. Also I got the inscription wrong it was, "Most loved dog".

That looks like a nice vintage tag.
Great image and a great way to remember your pet.
