In Columbus, North Carolina, ten desperate beagles cried and yelped as they tried to swim to safety after their trailer home flooded on Sunday. Homeowner Josephine Horne climbed aboard the Coast Guard boat just in time.

According to the USA Today, a second Coast Guard punt boat arrived and when one member of the team hurriedly grabbed one of the paddling beagles, her head barely above the water. And then the boat continued to be filled with shaking red and white pups happily wagging their tails and making the officers smile as the dogs kissed and hugged their rescuers. In addition, rescuers also saved the neighbor’s four pit bulls and brought them all to safety.

“We got a boat full of beagles,” Coast Guard crew member Tyler Elliott stated. “This is the best day of my life!”

And as the dogs were all scooped up and rescued, and although it had been a serious mission where 14 dogs in all were gathered together on the boat, one couldn’t help but smile and laugh as the dogs likely were saved in the nick of time.

Josephine had evacuated to a relative’s home during the hurricane, but returned to her home after she thought the wind and rain had died down. The flooding seemed to have come out of nowhere, but fortunately rescuers appeared and saved lives of the two legged and four legged kinds.
