Exercise Polygon took place this week, bringing together the emergency services to help and train each other in various flood rescue situations.
We were asked if Summer would help out by being the dog in distress for an animal rescue scenario. Seeing as we can't usually keep her out of the water this didn't seem like it would be a problem.
Armed with a buoyancy aid for extra floatation on the moving water, Summer was quick to jump in and start swimming on such a gorgeous day in Cardiff.
Summer had become a bit of a celebrity by the time she was called up for the rescue, with kids and adults chanting her name as she conquered the rapids at CIWW.
Even after the exercise was over, we struggled to get her out of the course!
