This is Floyd. He weighs 190 pounds. He is safe now.

Thank the Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue team for Floyd’s good health. According to SLCOSAR’s shockingly well-maintained Facebook page, rescuers were called Sunday night when hikers reported seeing a man and his gigantic dog unable to move on the trail near Grandeur Peak. They hiked about two miles in, bundled Floyd up onto a litter, and hiked the big dude out of there to safety. “Floyd was a good boy and was happy to be assisted,” they wrote. (Click right a few times on the Instagram post to watch a video of the rescue.)


The mountains of Utah are a harsh place, especially for a king this size. May he live forever, become even larger, and safely summit every peak in the Wasatch.
