Search ends in sadness for Kip the blind dog

 Kip the blind Springer Spaniel

The body of a dog which has been missing for two weeks has been discovered on the beach at Low Hauxley.

Kip, a liver and white male Springer Spaniel was blind and had gone missing from Druridge Bay beach on June 6th.

His owner had mounted a huge search campaign, drafting in the resources of the Lostdog.co.uk organisation.

Sadly at 11pm on Friday 22nd owner Sylvia Linnett posted this message on the website:

I am sorry that I have to give you all bad news.

It would seem that Kip went for a lovely, long, last swim after his run and did not come back.
His body was washed ashore this afternoon at Low Hauxley and it is apparent that he has been in the sea the whole time.

Your efforts to find him have been marvellous and it is only because of that I have him back. I have met some wonderful new friends and hope to give them all a special mention, but tonight I must say a huge thank you to Tracy, who found him, and her husband Chris. They have taken such good care of Kip and me tonight.

Sleep Tight and God Bless my darling boy, I shall miss you so much xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
