St. Bernard Dogs are named after
Saint Bernard de Menthon.
A patron saint of skiers and mountaineers.
They were originally bred by Swiss monks.
A keen senses of smell and direction
earned them a place tracking people
who became lost in the mountains.
Contrary to popular belief,
they never wore small kegs of brandy
around their necks while rescuing people.
