Springers Spaniels Got Bounce
Dog fell Off 300ft Cliff and Lived
POPPY the Springer Spaniel lived up to her name after plummeting 300FT off a cliff — and SURVIVING after bouncing off a wave.
The dog bolted after seeing a seagull circling over the drop and leapt at it not realising the fall below.
But lucky Poppy was running so fast her momentum meant she cleared the rocks which would have killed her instantly and landed in the high tide.
Lia Markwick and Stephen Winslade, who were walking Poppy as a favour to Lia's brother Ben and partner Kelly Ixer, were forced to lie down on the overhang and peer over in search for the pooch.
They expected to see the dog lying dead, but instead saw her in the water heading back to the beach.
They rang the coastguard who had a rescue boat out on exercise and raced to the cut off beach where they found her wagging her tail on the beach.
She was soaked after hitting the water but had doggy paddled back to the safety of dry land below the cliffs at the Seven Sisters beauty spot in Seaford, East Sussex.

Oh, I'm so happy this dog survived! I've owned two Springer Spaniels in my life, both females. Great dogs.This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!
Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.
Cruelty to humans begins with cruelty to animals.
I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.
