The Coast Guard Cliff Rescue team from Howth were requested to assist. The team set up a Cliff Rescue and lowered down one of the Rescue Climbers, Robin Blandford to the dog. Trixie had some initial concerns over who this new arrival, dressed in bright clothing and a white helmet, was joining her on the ledge. After some gentle talking to an apprehensive Trixie by Blandford, the skilled canine negotiator, with promises of doggy treats below she slowly warmed up to her new
friend. Trixie was then brought into the comfort of the Coast Guard “Doggy Bag”, a very low technical device to stop the dog and rescuer from getting too close on the descent.
Trixie was reunited at the bottom with her delighted owner and the team returned to the station.
