Swanage Carnival Volunteer by day - Swanage Coastguard Volunteer by night.

The full Swanage Coastguard Team were deployed to a dog over cliff at Old Harry - a cliff rescue. Not our favourite place, Old Harry, given the cliff face.

Luckily the dog 'Tarka' survived the fall and was picked up by a passing vessel and taken to South Beach, Studland.

Colleagues from St Albans Coastguard were also paged but stood down when the dog was recovered by a passing boat.
Dogs on leads - how apt.

The team reunited the owner with their dog.

Highlight of the evening was our very own Eric Hudson who turned up at the job - dressed in his Swanage Carnival red shirt and sporting face paint - dog paw prints! 

Well it was the Swanage Carnival Dog Show today! ever - please keep your dog on a lead when walking near to cliffs.
