Dear White's,
 
After 18 months of finding antique toys, silver and gold jewelry, and over $1000 in lost change with my Prizm II detector, I came across what is perhaps my best find ever a few weeks ago. I went to a school to check the playground area for a little while. I proceeded to go down a small embankment to a small ball field and noticed a malnourished dog tied to a backstop post. She was found in a secluded area of the schoolyard that backed up to a wooded area. This area was not visible from the parking lot or the school itself.

It sickened me to see this animal in the condition it was in and I knew I had to do something, so I ended up untying the dog and taking it home. After several baths and several meals, the dog and I became good buddies. Although we'll have to come up with additional funds for vet bills and food, I'm sure it will be worth it just to see this animal happy and healthy.

We named the dog Tasha. She has strong physical attributes to the Samoyed breed, and may also be part Golden Retriever. So far she's been getting along with our other dogs. She's very playful and still in her puppy stage (the vets estimate her age to be between 8-9 months) but sometimes she gets a bit carried away because she's obviously having the time of her life, especially when she'srunning or playing "keep away" with a ball or frisbee in the backyard. She's without a doubt the fastest dog I have ever seen!

I shared my find with my friends at www.treasurenet.com and I was overwhelmed at all the positive comments I received about what may be my greatest find ever.

Here are some "before" and "after" photos of Tasha. The first one is a bit disturbing because she had been starved for quite a while...however she continues to gain weight and appears to be getting back to normal puppy life.

Sincerely,
Nat
