LONDON (AP) — Don't worry: Daisy is fine.
The owners of the St. Bernard that collapsed while descending on England's tallest mountain say she's recovering well after a mountain rescue team helped her to safety.
Sixteen volunteers from Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team spent nearly five hours rescuing Daisy on Friday — after the 55 kilogram (121 pound) dog collapsed while descending Scafell Pike.
Daisy was displaying signs of pain in her rear legs and was refusing to move, having decided she had had enough.
After consulting with a veterinarian's office, rescuers administered some pain relief and adjusted a stretcher designed for humans to be dog-friendly.
