Number of Pictures:   of

The images below show why driver's and passengers should wear seat belts and why your dog(s) should be in crates while traveling....  

The images were taken the following day after a near fatal accident when the driver of the vehicle was driving hydroplaned on I-80 Eastbound in New Jersey at 40/45 miles an hour

  • did a "360" 
  • missed a bridge abutment by 50 feet on one side
  • a guardrail by 50 feet on the other side 
  • rolled the vehicle 
  • hit a tree and 

The two dogs (two American Eskimo Dogs) were safely kenneled in  separate #300 Vari-Kennel crates... 

One in a Deluxe Vari-Kennel; the other in a regular (beige-colored) Vari-Kennel.

You can see from one of the images that the beige crate did get "busted,"  but the dog in that crate did survive.

Both dogs were shown that weekend in New Jersey and at the AEDCA 2003 National Specialty in Macungie, Pennsylvania... 

"The boys" didn't miss a beat, and in fact, the class dog

  • took a 3 point major at the NJ show
  • took Best of Breed in Futurity AND
  • 1st place standard puppy (9-12 months) at the Specialty!
