A dog owner who was watched over by his pooch for 36 hours after falling 200ft into a ravine yesterday declared: “She saved my life.”

Martyn Clark, 76, was thrilled to be reunited with Suki after a month in hospital with multiple injuries.

He wrapped his arms around her and said, “Without her, I wouldn’t be here now.”

The Sun told last month how Martyn fell while on holiday with Suki near Lealholm in the North Yorkshire Moors.

He hit a boulder in a stream and was badly injured.

Martyn recalls, “I kept drifting into consciousness. Suki pressed her cold nose against my face and stared into my eyes.

“I think she knew how desperate things were getting. She looked at me like, ‘What the hell did you do that for?’”

She kept going to seek help and returning, but heard voices after 36 hours.

Martyn said: “I saw her prick up her ears and she was gone. Blood spurted from my head and I remember seeing leeches. I thought I would end up finding them all over me.”

Walker Tom Wykes, 57, and his family came to help Martyn who broke his shoulder and collarbone. Mountain rescuers carried him back up.

He is now at home with the Saluki Collie crossbreed in Sutton-on-Sea, Lincs but is less active.

He added, “She put her paws on my chest, took a good look and understood that things are going to be a little different now.”
