A family has been left heartbroken after their dogs jumped off a 200ft cliff to the beach and died.
The devastating incident took the lives of two of their three pooches, with the mother left severely injured.
21-year-old Brandan Pellow took the dogs to Gwithian Beach on September 5 to play and have some fun.
But as soon as he parked up at the beach near Hayle, their family pets excitedly jumped out of the vehicle and ran to the edge of the cliff.
“It was the worst day of my life so far. This weekend has been absolutely heart wrenching and I don’t know how we are all going to find a coping mechanism to re-nourish our empty hearts,” Brandan expressed.
“That feeling and the tears do not stop. The grieving doesn’t stop and the images of their innocent and beautiful faces won’t leave my mind.”
The dogs, which still had their harnesses on, jumped out of the car and ran to the cliff.
“Our beautiful girls got over excited and found their way to the highest cliff at Gwithian Beach. They didn’t see the edge because they were so fast and they just fell to the very bottom,” he shared.
“Before I could attach their leads they had bolted out of my Land Rover past me and my partner. I went to chase them down and screamed their names but couldn’t keep up with the pace they were going.
“I looked over the cliff edge and prayed that they weren’t at the bottom, but they were.”
Two of the three dogs tragically passed away. Sasha, the eldest dog, suffered broken legs.
“We are all so distressed. My heart aches and my belly doesn’t stop churning. Every time I go to sleep all I think about is them falling off the cliff. I can’t even explain how I feel,” Brandan expressed.
“It’s like when you are in a nightmare and you feel like you are falling from a high height and that’s just exactly how I feel and what I think about it when I imagine them there.
“The fact that little Sasha is still alive is a miracle and I just want to do absolutely everything I can to help her recover and give her the best life possible after losing her puppies.”
