Happisburgh Volunteers were call into action at 12:05 pm an eight year old Spaniel was reported going into the sea and was subsequently taken out to sea. The dog’s owner, Rachel Grey, called for help and Happisburgh’s D Class ‘Russell Pickering’ was launched with Jake Munday at the helm and Martin Gibbs as crew; they picked up Rosie, the spaniel, 500 metres off the beach. She was returned to the beach to be reunited with owner, Rachel.
Lifeboat ‘Russell Pickering’ was re-housed and made ready for service.
We would like dog owners whose dogs get swept out to sea to call the Coastguard and ask for the Lifeboat; we are happy to save a dog and rather then having to search for a missing owner.
