6. A happy 'tail': Poorly pooch Winnie now recovering after scare on Exmouth beach

Winnie’s owner Gwyn Parks posted a public thank you, on the Exmouth Community UK Facebook page, telling the dramatic ‘tail’ that thankfully ended in the dog’s life being saved.

Winnie had been out for a walk when began to fit and stopped breathing. Passers-by jumped to the pooch’s aid including residents, police, the local vets and two EDDC StreetScene workers who helped rescue a car, that became stuck on the beach when attempting to pick the dog up and drive her to the vets.

Winnie was brought back to life after CPR and is now recovering at home with her owner.
