Digging, a favorite pastime of dogs, ruins the aesthetic of gardens, yet sometimes leads to surprising discoveries. To wit, earlier this month, an 18-month-old Golden Retriever named Kenyon in Oregon uncovered $85,000 worth of black tar heroin in his owners' backyard, KATU reports.
The pup worked doggedly at unearthing the package, which his owners initially assumed was a time capsule. Excited, they filmed themselves opening the buried treasure, only to discover that it contained 15 ounces of drugs.
The couple reported their findings to the Yamhill County Sheriff's Office, and Kenyon was named an honorary narcotics K9 by Sheriff Tim Svenson.
