Dog Sniffs Out 19th Century Mortar

Dover, United Kingdom Sign this furry friend up for the bomb squad! A man was walking his black Labrador, Barnes, on the shore of Sandwich Bay when the dog sniffed out on old mortar shell, and it isn't the dog's first munition find!

The shell, believed to be a 25-pound, high explosive shell dating from around 1890, was disposed of at the site by the Royal Navy Southern Diving Unit from Portsmouth. Barnes' previous finds include some 40-pound black powder shells, sniffed out in the same area last March.
