And finally… doge coin

A family’s new puppy has turned into a profitable investment after digging up valuable gold coins on his first walk.

Ollie, a young lagotto romagnolo, well known as truffle hunters, dug up 15 sovereign coins valued at £5,943.96 when taken for a walk near Blackpool in northern England, The Times reports.

Owner Adam Clark, who bought the puppy for his nine-year-old daughter, said: “He cost me £2,000 so after sniffing out the gold he tripled my investment, which is always a bonus.”

The puppy was just 10 weeks old when he made the discovery on his first-ever trip outdoors.

Mr Clark said: “We’d literally been walking for around ten minutes when Ollie suddenly stopped and started frantically digging away at the soil.”
