Samson the dog with owner Kyle Barrett. See SWNS story SWOCroof. A family noticed their dog was missing to find him wandering round on the ROOF. Kyle Barrett, 32, was visiting family with his wife, children and pooch when everyone noticed their dog, Samson, had vanished. But nobody expected to look up to the roof and spot the 60kg St Bernard sniffing around on the roof of his mothers bungalow on Saturday (20). The family, from Lymm, Cheshire, then had the job of coaxing the pup who is just one year old and expected to grow even larger back down again.
