Cowes RNLI

Just over two weeks after saving one dog, Cowes RNLI has taken a giant leap forward in its canine-related exploits by rescuing five this afternoon (Friday).

The crew was tasked to a couple and their five small dogs, cut off by the
incoming tide on the shore east of Thorness Bay.

After launching at 1.30pm the lifeboat was soon on the scene, and the couple and their dogs – one of which was being carried in a pushchair due to a leg injury – were soon
taken aboard the lifeboat.

Within minutes they were landed on the beach at Thorness, where they were
believed to be holidaying.

The lifeboat returned to its station at 2.05pm.

Last month, the lifeboat crew came to the aid of an exhausted dog
in the sea off the Hampshire.
