I once stayed with friends at a mountain chalet rental in Switzerland. It had a road like that to get to it, and it was often cloaked in fog. Imagine having to back up to the wide spot in the fog.

It the village of Lenk, in the Bernese Overland. Incidental, everyone who lives there had a Bernese Mountain dog. https://www.myswitzerland.com/en-us/...the-simmental/

OK, so it wasn't such a coincidence then that we saw two Berners while at the top of one of the mountain passes in Bern.

FWIW, the breeder was really touched by that story and I think that is how we more or less got to choose the puppy we wanted.
