I have never seen a Saint Bernard before and was dumbstruck when I saw one at the show. What a size, what a face! A few shots..

Don't you feel like cuddling him, despite his size?

This is my daughter trying, with trepidation though, to see how a Saint Bernard reacts to touch.

This husky, naturally, stole the show.

Very nice series Raghu! Can you imagine that big ol St. Benard running up to you in the snow with a barrel of hoochtied around his neck.As I understand it, in the old days they really did carry some kind of liquor around their necks to help revive lost people in the snow when they found them.

Thanks, Don. I remember watching, when I was 6-7 years old,a Laurel & Hardymovie featuring a St Bernard where the actor kept on trying to open the barrelbut the dog never allowed him toeven touchthatl. That was fun at that time but later on I realised how useful a role the St Bernards played in saving lives. They do have a majestic and kind (and sometimes drunken)look!
