Family finds gold nugget while walking their dog Lucky

This wonderfully good news comes to us from Australia.

An Australian family has literally struck gold after finding a large nugget while out walking their dog.

A father and his two daughters requesting to remain anonymous were out with their dog named Lucky, ironically, when one of the girls kicked something hard lying on the ground. The father walked right past it but one of his daughters called his attention to the nugget of gold lying on the ground.

The father weighed the nugget at a nearby supermarket and it weighed in at 20 ounces. The estimated value of the gold nugget is held at $37,000 or $25,000 USD.

The father was quick to admit that their change of luck had come at a crucial time. He said that they were struggling financially and the gold nugget discovery had been rather good timing on the part of lady luck.
