Did you ever have one of those call-outs that just seemed odd from the git go? I got an e-mail from a very nice man who explained that he was going through a rather messy divorce and wanted me to check his yards for a missing ladies 18k gold engagement ring. No different than many of the other call-outs that I had and no mention that she was upset and threw it into the yard, but that he wanted me to check his yard for the ring. Ok, I’ll bite. I met him and met his dogs and he lead me to one of the side yards to be checked and he gave me the basis for the yard checks. He wanted to see if any one of his three dogs might have swallowed the ring and …..let’s say, deposited it in the yard. Ewwwwwww, so being the professional I am and representing The Ring Finders, I gave it a go. Tiptoeing over, around and hopefully not thru the land mines was foremost on my mind as was the metal detector itself. He told me to pay attention to the yard yummies as that would be the most likely spot if the ring was there. After checking both yards around the house, I am happy to say that the dogs elimination has been eliminated. Fido, Muffy, and Buffy are no longer suspects.
