We adopted a badly abused dog and in return she has given us great happiness...............

Our neighbor's son was working at a construction site over in Houston, Texas when he saw some men beating a dog with some pieces of 2X4 lumber. He stepped in and put a stop to it. The dog was badly hurt and the son rushed him to a nearby vet clinic. The vet suggested that it might be best to put the dog to sleep, but Bryan said "no!" It took weeks, but the dog survived, and when the vet called Bryan to pick the dog up, Bryan did not have the money to pay the entire bill. He called his father the day that I happen to be over at his house for a visit and to look at a new bull that he had bought from a rancher over near Bandera, Texas. Sam told his son that he would lend him the money to get the dog out of the vet clinic.

A week later I was visiting with Sam on the telephone when he asked me if I remembered his son calling to ask about borrowing some money to get a stray dog out of a vet clinic over in Houston. I said that, yes, I remembered the telephone call. He told me that Bryan had brought the dog home over the weekend and had left for Houston on Monday. Sam said that he did not want another dog and if I knew anyone that wanted one, please give him a call. I told Sam that I might be interested because I had lost my dog about six months ago and thought it was time to get another one. That afternoon, I drove the pickup truck over to Sam's ranch to see the dog. It was instant love when I laid my eyes upon her. Within minutes the dog was sitting beside me as we headed home. My wife and I named the dog "Sadie." She has been my constant buddy for over six years now and I have enjoyed every bit of the six years. Every time I see her running across the yard, I can not understand why anyone would want to hurt such a beautiful and loving dog. My Grandson loves this dog too, and "Sadie" is often his playmate when he visits us. Yes, it has been a wonderful six years since "Sadie" came into our lives! Kelley (Texas) :)

This is a picture of "Sadie" sleeping on the couch. She knows that she is forbidden to sleep on the couch and I laughed at the expression on her face when I took this picture.

As a side story, below is a picture of a stray cat that showed up at our house one day and never left. We named her "Bad Cat" because she would fight with some of the other cats in the neighborhood. "Sadie" and "Bad Cat" are best friends. As you can probably tell, we love animals.

Thanks for the story and pictures Fred and the amount of Dog and animal abuse is just unimaginable. Sadie and Bad Cat seem to make a good looking team.



Bells and whistles are nice, but nothing will substitute for the basic understanding of the hobby.

Sadie doesn't look to overly concerned about being forbidden to sleep on the couch.:clapping:



Here's the link to my field test post containing over 60 different hunts of various coil tests...field tests published in Western & Eastern Treasures Magazine...comparisons...nicer finds...etc..:
http://www.findmall.com/read.php?19,1055627,1055627#msg-1055627

Been swingin' the coil since 1972

Started out in 1972 with a Jetco Detector...then the late 70's with a Whites 6000:whites:....then in 1981 went to a Bounty Hunter VLF TR 840:bounty:

Then in the early 1980's I went to a Whites 6000 Di Pro:whites:...mid 80's I went to a Whites Eagle II SL:whites:...Late 80's/Early 90's I went to the Whites XLT:whites:

1990's I used the Fisher CZ5, CZ6, CZ7, 7aPro, and CZ70Pro (still have)...and am currently doing some water hunting with my CZ-21:fisher:...

Started using Minelabs in 1999:minelab:

with a brief stint on the Musketeer while also using the CZ's...then in 2002 I switched to the Minelab Explorers and currently use the Explorer SE Pro as my main machine. I also use the Explorer 2 and E-trac often... and have a CTX3030 I use as a backup:minelab: Might also mention I have an arsenal of coils for the Explorers:thumbup:


"Metal detecting is an escape for me and allows me to find some much needed peace and solace.
Being able to clear my head...even if only for that short while...is much more meaningful than any amount of finds that end up in my pouch"

There are people and there are real people. Real people love their animals and that love is returned 10 fold. We have 2 dogs and heaps of guinea fowls, some peacocks and several varieties of parrots. And of course a Horse with a couple more arriving soon. We have a 40 acre hobby farm. Both dogs know what a kangaroo is, what a possum is and what a goanna is and seem to know exactly what my wife and I are talking about..... They know to protect their animals from predators and watch very closely if a stranger comes to the gate.
We wouldn't be without them. We know where you are coming from Kelley. Cheers mate

I have 5 dogs, 3 cats ,6 kittens,3 hens ,7 rosters and 1 peacock.
They are animals yes. But they are also my friends and bring joy to my life.
Two of my dogs were adopted from the local Humane society here.
So I understand what you mean by the happines Sadie has brought in your life.
Congrats on your new addition to the family.
Sadie is a beutiful girl.

What a wonderful heartwarming story. I have never understood the mindset of people who can be intentionally cruel to innocent animals. I never will. It just locks my jaws up tight everytime I hear of it. I've owned dogs for most of my life and right now have 3 of them. All great little friends. The only problem I've ever had with a pet is no matter how much love I heap on em I never seem to be able to match the love they give in return. Faithful and true to a fault. Unconditional love. Three cats and we're supporting a herd of outside feral cats as well. Each and every one of these furry friends has a personality all its own. Have a peek at the Rainbow Bridge http://ojerholm.com/Rainbow%20Bridge.htm -- a little video with audio about a dog and an owner being reunited at a place just this side of heaven.

That's a good deal Kelley. I would never trust anyone who doesn't love animals.

:usmc:Two of my dogs are rescues. One was adopted as a companion for my lonely and Bossy Chihuahua. She lost her Laborador and was sulking about it. So Ponch the Chihuahua was adopted out of a High Kill shelter in California. His surrender card says simply "Needs too much attention". Yeah.....He wanted love. He has his forever family now and is the kindest and sweetest dog. Then came Harley, our new 2 year old Lab. A total goof. But a heart of gold. Anyone sees me out there, Harley is already in the truck before I finish opening the door. We took him in from a distant relative that had to go into an assisted living facility. He is a 10. Very well trained now and a constant companion. Three dogs is a bit much sometimes, but the rewards are worth it seeing their happiness in their eyes.

Thanks for sharing your story about Sadie. I can't let Harley see that pic of her on the couch. Would give him a bad idea

I just find it astounding that anyone could hurt an animal. They are so innocent. She is absolutely GORGEOUS!

Sadie is such a beautiful dog. I don't have all the animals that you guys/gals have but I truly understand what you feel with your pets. I have a boxer named Baxter and he always seems to bring a smile to my face just when I need it most. I can't even imagine how some people can be so cruel to animals. We all just want to be loved just as they do. I wish I could show you a picture of Baxter.... He's fawn with some black and white mixed in. He weighs about 75 pounds and he'll lick you to death and his stubby tail wags constantly. Well, take care and enjoy ..... Jack from Farmington,N.H.
