Everyone has heard the stories of Saint Bernard dogs rescuing stranded and hypothermic travellers in the Swiss Alps. The most famous was Barry, who apparently saved at least 40 lives before a traveller killed him in a "fit of cowardly terror". :cry:

Recently, we humans were given the opportunity to thank the breed, in a small but tangible way, for its centuries of devotion. A St Bernard dog became stuck in the ice in Montana and was rescued by fire-fighters.

Ah, that's a cute dog, and I'm glad they were able to rescue him. It sounds like that would have hurt being stuck like that. Good pictures there.

I haven't heard of one of those dogs since I was a little kid. I'm glad they were able to rescue it.

How terrible! Just imagine how many more lives he might have saved. :gloomy:

That is terrible! That poor dog...

I'm glad that they were able to say the St. Bernard from the ice, though.
