Was there ever a more pathetic pup? This starving weaner stranded on the south end of the beach at San Simeon Cove on March 21, the first day of Spring. He was reported to the center in the afternoon and by late in the day -- note the long shadows -- a team was out there to rescue him.
He doesn't have much energy, so capturing him was pretty easy. just surround and nudge, and into the carrier he went
Several visitors were on the beach on this sunny but windy day. They were eager to help the pup. Two offered to help carry the heavy carrier., The pup was several hundred yards down the beach. It felt like a long way carrying him back to the truck.
They named the pup Hartley. He perked up after he got some fluids at the Morro Bay center. "He's been very vocal," said center director Diana Kramer. He was sent to the Sausalito hospital and will be evaluated and treated there. I'll post updates.
