The 30th of January 2010 we were going to an International Dogshow in Fredericia. There were given out warnings about snowstorm, but we took it easy as we had never been snowed in, so off we went at 06:30 am down our driveway, which is 250 meters long. We only maneged 100 meters along the road and then we were stuck. And it did not became any better, when we found out that one of our neighbors blocked the road because he too was stuck 100 feet further along the road, but give up - not a possibility, we are real genuine dog people (-: So out with our shovels and get started ( -: 1 neighbor came to help, 2 more neighbors turned up, and then a 4th neighbour also came to help. (Saturday morning minus 10 degrees at 06:30 - we live in a good place (-:) At one point we actually gave up, but was encouraged to try more of Jens Ole and Alice, who would try to move the judging of the breed to later in the day. S o we shoveled and shoveled. Pushed our car back into our own driveway, then pushed the neighbours' car home and then pushed our car into the road again - off we went, and now we almost came flying to Fredericia (-:
And thank god we came, because it was a pleasure to see how beautiful and well trained Caya and Canis showed themselves in the breed judgements (-:
