    Dog digs up bomb in his backyard.

    An old dog was up to new tricks Monday when a pooch probably looking for a bone found something a lot more explosive, Plantation officials said.

    Authorities have confirmed that a dog digging in its yard unearthed an old military device, likely some type of bomb.

    The find caused police to block off three blocks in Plantation near the area of 870 SW 49 Terrace.

    The Broward Sheriff's Office bomb squad was called in and determined the explosive was inert.

    Officials took the metal military munition can away and will try to determine just how old the explosive is and why it was buried in a residential yard.

    No word if the dog ever found that bone.
