SOME may call it a shaggy dog story but the latest member to join the ranks of The Pidley Mountain Rescue Team is. . . a 'mountain rescue dog'.
Merlin the Saint Bernard was made a member of the charity fundraising team by his owners Peter and Fiona Cook from Gamlingay.
Not only did they pay out £10 each for their life membership, but Merlin was also included.
Gil Boyd, the charity's chairman, said: "It is always nice to have an animal such as the Saint Bernard associated with our rescues.
You may also want to watch:
"It is just a shame that he didn't have his barrel of brandy under his chin so that we could all enjoy a tipple on the committee."
The Pidley Mountain Rescue Team has for the past 35 years been fundraising in order to purchase a specialist piece of equipment for a disabled person in Huntingdonshire.
