When Sir Len Hutton was holidaying in Switzerland, he was out skiing one day when he fell and injured his ankle. He was unable to walk and lay in the snow until a St Bernard dog came along. Sir Len crawled onto its back and the dog set off in a homeward direction.
Night fell and brought heavy snow, and the poor dog lost all sense of direction. When eventually they came to a house both Sir Len and the dog were exhausted. Sir Len hammered on the door and it was opened by a woman.
'What do you want?' she asked.
'We need help. Look, this poor dog is almost dead. He has carried me for miles,' gasped Sir Len.
'Well you can't stay here,' replied the woman. 'This house is for women only.'
'But, surely madam, surely,' pleaded Sir Len, 'you wouldn't turn a knight out on a dog like this?'
