Bilbo Hasselhoff to the Rescue

February 5 | 2 Comments

David Hasselhoff is allowed there, but you aren’t.

Gidget has her blanket laid out there, but your dog bed isn’t anywhere to be found.

Kerri Walsh and Misty May Treanor hammer balls home on this court, but you aren’t allowed to chase them.

What, or more specifically, where am I talking about? Well it’s the beach, and get this, it’s in the the UK.

You may remember the story from last summer about Bilbo, the Newfoundland lifeguard that was fired from his job because all dogs were banned from the beach.

Well it appears he’s done being lazy and wants his job back. The Metro has the details.

The only lifeguard dog in Britain is starring in a video appeal to Gordon Brown to get his job back.

Bilbo, a 90kg (14stone) Newfoundland, was banned from his beach and is in a short, Baywatch-style film sent to No. 10.

A Facebook group has also been set up for the dog, which has helped rescue dozens of people.

Bilbo is no longer allowed on Sennen Beach in Cornwall because of a ban on dogs.

‘He saves lives. He is no gimmick,’ said Bilbo campaigner Janeta Hevizi.

Here’s Bilbo in action…back when he was a working dog.

    Well, I mean, who needs to save drowning souls? It’s a shame when humans behave like this in destroying something that is good. I guess the Facebook and the whole PR should’ve been done way before this action was taken; that way the new law would’ve included “excluding working animals”. Sharing the video forward. Thanks!

    If dogs are banned from this beach, does that mean that a person with a disability would not be allowed on the beach with their assistance dog? 

Got something to say?
