While out metal detecting this big Alaskan malamute came by me and seemed to be looking for a friend. After a while it was running around in circles by me as if too impress me. It looked thirsty so I gave it what water I had it my bag. I got a target, dropped to me knees and started digging. The dog came by brought a empty water bottle by and dropped it by and laid down along side my metal detector as I was digging. All of a sudden it's back legs went up, the dog barked at me, it grabbed my metal detector in it's mouth and it was gone. After it ran around me 3 times then it brought my metal detector back and set it down.
