Golden Brodie barks: Amelia, where are you?

Dogs…that’s right…four border collies trained in finding long-buried bones are sniffing out the discovery of a life time…an answer to whatever happened to Amelia Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan?

Well…the four are searching… wearing booties to protect their paws from 80 degree ground temperatures, hundreds of thousands of coconut crabs and sharp volcanic rock fragments.  Sound like fun?  Yeah, these well-trained dogs are doing their job and going for the find of their dog lives.

These dogs can hunt!  Seriously…hoping they find the remaining bones of Amelia so we can put her to rest in our hearts and minds…that would be a golden moment for all.

Golden Brodie shares: Dogs that dig the past

Yes… digging is part of many dogs lives…but…there are dogs that get into locating bones that are hundreds of years old…yep…archaeology on four legs.  These dogs have such self-control…once they find bones…they back off…moon walk backwards and NEVER touch the bones.  Can you image that one?  Read on for golden enlightenment.  Bones them bones…them dry bones.
