Even a 90-pound mastiff can get spooked by thunderstorms.

One who lives on the northeast side of Lake Tapps got scared during the stormy weather Monday, and went down a 20-foot embankment near the 21300 block of 10th Street East.

The owner tried to get the pooch back up, and hoped the dog might come up on his own.

But two days later, he called in reinforcements.

East Pierce Fire & Rescue crews arrived about 12:30 p.m. today with a technical rescue team and rescued the mastiff.

They brought the owner up from the bottom of the embankment too, according to East Pierce.

Both owner and dog are safe at home.
