Kids save dog from watery grave
WESLEY the golden retriever was rescued from a muddy swamp thanks to three young life-savers.
He wandered off from his owner George Doody when he was out for a walk in Tile Hill Woods in Coventry – and got into deep water.
Hapless Wesley, who suffers from cataracts, managed to find his way into the heart of the woods, where he plunged headlong into marshy ground and became well and truly stuck.
Luckily nightclub manager Tracy McGrath was walking her dogs nearby with her niece Olivia, aged 11, and nephews Fraser, eight, and Jude, three.
The children heard the 12-year-old dog, who is also mostly deaf, yelping and told their aunt to call the fire service who came and pulled him to safety.
