W2 rescue deaf and blind dog from the river
In keeping with the spirit of selfless community devotion typical of Trinity Hall W2 & W3 rowers, I am please to report of this morning's extraordinary outing.
Returning from an otherwise excellent row, the W3 4+ found itself in front of the P&E within sights of a drowning, deaf and blind dog; its hysterical owner waving and begging for help with one hand whilst the other hand was dialling "999" on her mobile.
Ever in control, the cox ("Sharp Shappy") eased the crew and ordered Bow to tap it whilst cleverly ruddering the boat alongside the hapless creature. With deft dexterity, 2 ("Zealous Zoe") scooped up the mutt having thrown all personal caution to the wind. Crafty Coco (a "dog
whisperer") calmed the canine while Stroke manoeuvred the boat alongside the bank.
Having thus been handed personally her otherwise doomed pet, the ecstatic owner vowed to write a personal note to Trinity Hall thanking the THBC for its town & gown awareness and responsibility.
The crew, however, always humble, suggested on behalf of all Cam coxes that perhaps instead she could introduce at close quarters her dog to Mr. Asbo.
Edit: This story was featured on cambridge-news.co.uk, as well as appearing on the newspaper billboard on Bridge Street. Hopefully any future coverage will correctly report us as Trinity Hall rather than Trinity College!
