June 27, 2023

A local dog in Moundsville, West Virginia, has captured the attention and admiration of the community by single-handedly finding over 150 lost golf discs at a popular park.

Unclaimed discs will be on sale, with proceeds going to the park.

Daisy is a four-year-old Labrador Retriever who loves going on walks with her owner, Kelly Mason, at Grand Vue Park.

Every day, they walk about five miles through the park. Sometimes, Daisy goes on her own adventure and returns with a souvenir.

"Daisy, my yellow Labrador retriever has a nose for finding discs," Mason told WTRF. "We will be walking through the park and her nose will go up. She can smell 'em, and she just goes off. She could go off 30 yards through the multiflorosa, the high weeds. And here she comes with a disc."

Since she found her first disc about three years ago, Daisy has retrieved 155 of them with no plans of stopping anytime soon.

The park recently teamed up with Mason to create a program called "Daisy’s Discs".

"Normally when park staff finds them or when our park guests find them, all of them are turned into the into the barn area," says Ben Bolock, the assistant general manager at Grand Vue Park. "Some discs that have names on them, we call them, and people are able to come and pick them up. During that time, they can make a donation to Daisy's Discs and that that money will fund the Marshall County Animal Rescue League. If discs are found and there's no name on them and we’ve had them for a long period of time, and nobody has claimed them, the park will sell them for a very low amount and that money will go back into the disc golf course."
