    A British dog has miraculously survived a 91 metre fall from a cliff on England's south coast.

    The springer spaniel, called Poppy, was on a walk with her owners in Seaford, East Sussex on February 14 when she plunged over the edge of the cliff while chasing a seagull.

    Poppy landed in the water and was able to swim to shore.

    The three-year-old huddled under the cliff face until a Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) crew came to her rescue.

    Poppy sustained a partially collapsed lung but has made a full recovery.

    The RNLI has urged all dog owners to keep their pets on a lead when near the cliffs.

    Wonder if it was fun or scary?

    LOL, my little dog did the same thing but ran right off the end of a 6 foot bulkhead. The lake was up otherwise she would have hit hard sand.
