FELIXSTOWE firefighters saved Bonnie the black Labrador from a watery grave after she fell down a hole on the remote Trimley Marsh.
The dog fell to the bottom of a ten-foot hole after it ran off into long grass yesterday afternoon.
The female owner of the labrador was walking the dog near the Suffolk Wildlife Centre, along with her other dog, a golden labrador, and her son.
Firefighters were called to the spot at 3.24pm to find Bonnie at the bottom of the shaft, which was filling rapidly with water because of heavy rain.

Assistant Divisional Officer of Felixstowe, Paul Seager, said: "The owner first of all called the coastguard in to try and get the dog out, and they were the ones who let us know about it. Even though it was quite a remote area, we managed to drive up a track to within about ten yards of where the dog was.
He added: "It was quite a large hole, and because of the long grass you could see how the dog did not know that there was a hole there."
