    Default Sometimes even St. Bernards need rescuing





    There was a rescue involving a St. Bernard in Billings, Mont., but this time it was the humans who saved the day.
    A 16-month-old St. Bernard named Duke apparently fell through the ice on a golf-course pond after escaping from his yard. He was able to pull himself out but ended up getting frozen to the ice.
    A maintenance worker saw the dog and got help. Two firefighters in dry suits pushed an ice rescue sled over about 10 feet of hip-deep water and 10 feet of ice to reach the shivering, 118-pound dog.
    The firefighters broke the ice around Duke's tail with a mallet before hauling the dog and a chunk of ice back to shore.
    Duke was feeling better after being de-iced and warmed up under a blow dryer at a veterinary clinic.

    I'm not much of an animal person, but I have a soft spot for Saint Bernards. What a beautiful and happy puppy.

    Yea right, where was his barrell??? At least that could have helped possibly!

    I know someone who raises (or did raise) St Bernards and they are super cool...except for all that drool and all.

    Once he's dried! Otherwise there's that wet dog smell.
