St. Bernard dogs are those big (often over 100 lbs!) dogs you see bounding to rescue people trapped in snow on the mountains, with a small barrel of brandy around their necks. Well, this time it was a bunch of humans who had to rescue a St. Bernard named Daisy who collapsed on a mountain in England while out with her owners.
When Daisy couldn’t move, the 16 team members of the Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team sprang into action. Carefully loading the 121-pound dog into a stretcher, they proceeded — slowly — to take Daisy down the mountain in a 5-hour operation.
According to her rescuers, Daisy ” feels a bit guilty and slightly embarrassed about letting down the image of her cousins bouncing across the Alpine snows with barrels of brandy around their necks,” the team joked.
