Stop the world I want to get off

There are days I feel like disgusted off Tonbridge Wells.

Bilbo, Britain's only lifeguard dog has been banned from his duties on Sennen beach.

Bilbo, a 14 stone chocolate colour Newfoundland, has worked the beach for the past three years and wears a yellow jacket.

However Dogs are banned from the beach and the RNLI have told Bilbo that the concession that exempts him is no longer permissable due to safety reasons.

You can read more about it here .

I do love the bit where the council official says as the owner now works for the RNLI he is just a dog and that they can't have one rule for one. BUT, ""f Bilbo was still working for Penwith we would come up with some workable option."

For goodness sake.

I saw this on the news... ridiculous! Surely that dog is a great advert for the RNLI... he's a good lifesaver as well! it makes me so mad! Jane
