Spaniel Rescued From Sandbank as Tide Rises in Northwest England



A Spaniel named Poppy was rescued after ending up stranded on a sandbank 200 meters (656 ft) from the shore as the tide rose near the northwest England town of Morecambe in early June, the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) said. In the footage of the rescue posted by the MCA, a crew member enters the water to grab Poppy from a rapidly sinking sandbank, and another crew member singlehandedly pulls the pair back to shore with a rope. Coast guard crews from Knott-end, Morecambe, and Fleetwood assisted in the rescue mission, the coast guard said. The MCA said it posted the video to remind pet owners of potential dangers on the coast, such as “slippery paths and sometimes steep and crumbling cliffs.” They advised people call the coastguard for help if a pet is in trouble, instead of trying to rescue them themselves. Poppy’s owner, Ruth Gordon, thanked the rescuers in a comment on Facebook, saying she would be “eternally grateful” for their efforts. Though Gordon called Poppy “a very naughty girl,” she said the dog “had two suppers and a snuggle on the sofa” following the rescue. Credit: Mark Butterworth/HM Coastguard via Storyful
