A beach walker threw what he thought was a stone for his dog to fetch...  Who the heck throws rocks for his dog to fetch?

I guess if you do it right he'd only have to go fetch it once...

That dog must have a lot of broken teeth.

It's the Daily Mail, reporting with zero identified sources. What actually happened was that somebody lobbed a rock into the surf, and yelled "grenade!" after it made a big splash.

They say owners look a lot like their dogs.  And this is Britain.

Is it okay if you accidentally the whole thing?

I've never Snoped it, but I suspect the following is an urban legend. The article reminds me of it.

One winter a couple of rednecks wanted to go ice fishing, so they loaded their gear in a pickup truck and drove out onto a frozen lake. For whatever reason they brought a hunting dog and some guns with them. Being lazy, they decided to use a stick of dynamite to blow a hole in the ice to fish from. One lit the fuse and threw the dynamite out a ways. The dog, thinking it a game went to fetch the stick of dynamite and began to bring it back to the rednecks. They saw what was about to occur and began shooting at the dog with their guns. The dog became scared and took cover under the truck. Dynamite goes boom, dead dog, sunken pickup.

It's probably not true, but I find it amusing.

Well, I'll be darned, it actually happened more or less the way they reported it.

I actually DID look this up on Snopes a while ago.  It is indeed not entirely true.  But it is an amusing story nonetheless.

It is the fifth Second World War grenade to wash up on the same beach over the last five weeks.




This sounds like the work of global warming

Warmer water make grenades more buoyant?

Was she afraid he'd make it back to her before the grenade went off?

This is dangerous, so the police took a picture from two feet away.
It's OK, their iPhone is almost bulletproof.

On a trip through Ireland, I stayed at a castle that had two resident dogs - one a mutt, the other an Irish Wolfhound.

The Irish wolfhound looked down into the car, and the mutt retrieved rocks for you to throw for him.

/Apparently, tennis balls were rather thin on the ground...

So by "live" grenade, they mean "dud grenade with the fuse assembly missing."

/Still dangerousish in terms of having elderly explosives in it, but not something that's suddenly likely to go off after 70 years of rolling around in the surf.

Stop planting bad ideas...
...but it IS a tempting thing to do.

Bonus points to anyone who tries this.

So did my sister's dog. Big, dumb chocolate lab named Brownie. He'd look for any and all big rocks and bring them to you to play fetch. Still had all his teeth too. I miss that rock-lovin' dog.
