We always dream of going on an expedition to find hidden treasure or gold but we never really think it will happen while walking the dog. That's what happened to one fortunate Australian family last week.
The family’s father and two daughters were out with their dog, coincidentally named “Lucky,” when they came across something that looked like gold. They stopped and examined it and sure enough, it was just that.
The father said they weighed the nugget at a nearby supermarket, as they couldn’t find anywhere to properly weight it. The gold nugget weighed 20 ounces, or 1.25 pounds — a value the family claims could be worth upwards of $24,000.
It couldn't have happened at a better time since the father says they've had some financial struggles as a family recently.
