Steve's girlfriend, having gone skiing alone, became lost in the mountains during a blizzard. After an unsuccessful three-day search, rescuers were ready, reluctantly, to call off any further effort to find her when Steve, arriving on the scene with the couple's bloodhound, Max, gave the team new hope. "I have a sure-fire way to find Beth," he said, and he held out a pair of her panties for the dog to sniff. Within an hour, the bloodhound had found her. "How in the world did you manage that?" an amazed rescuer asked him. "Simple," Steve said. "I love Beth, but she's a slob. Although she was on her period, we made love just before she went skiing, and she kicked off her panties, leaving them on the bedroom floor, as usual, for me to pick up. Good bloodhound that he is, Max just followed her scent."
