  1. Obituary for “Bilbo” from Germany:

    Life guarding by “rescue-dogs” is more than ever up-to-date in Germany, with special education and great success due to multiple advantages of dogs. This is because for us, it is solely the high quality of lifesaving that decides and not the interests of bloodless corporations. That is why beach and sea rescue in Germany is nationwide firmly in the hands of a non-profit organization (DLRG). And that is truely good so ! Also in England, wise people have already understood for long, that the mania for privatization isn’t a panacea and leads to ruin, especially when it comes to services of public good i.e. services of General Interest.

    For the local municipality I can only hope, that the story of Bilbo will be a lesson to them and that they will seize the next best opportunity to end the contract and to send this heartless private company to the devil. It has disqualified itself in all respects. All over the world, which is why one should finally publish the name once in a while, so that they get their due “reputation”. The community can be pleased, that they have such committed, competent and loyal staff like Steve in their administration and appreciate this accordingly. Immediately ! The instructor for a new “Rescue Dog” is still there …
