My sambo Anna belongs to an old Swedish family of dog-owners. Since childhood she has grown up with at least two or three dogs. And a few cats, too. For each one of those family dogs Anna’s mother has a family tree that starts in the Viking era. As a matter of fact, I'm not sure if cats were treated equally in that sense. I must check.
Emma was not aware that Trassel, her dog, ate the last page of her (Swedish) passport. Not being aware of that detail, however, cost her denied entry into Serbia. The policeman in charge was acting "in accordance to the law” which ”did not allow him” to let her in on a ”non-valid document”. Rules are rules.
