Cameraa Woes

I take a lot of my own source photos. So we were at the park down at the river teaching my mentally challenged dog to swim. I thought swimming came as an automatic feature with all new dogs but this one sinks like a toaster. So we bought him a floatation life vest. He was playing with children as he loves to do and I had just finished taking a salvo of pretty cool 'water splashing' shots and the dog at play. All of a sudden a HUGE, Devil dog from what must have been another dimension, just appears out of nowhere. He flies into the water and starts trying to tear my little dog to shreds. My girlfriend gets knocked on her azz, stunned, Buddy the dog is like all WTF? and I am on shore, my back in a brace, wobbly on a cane and I gotta break this chaos up or I am going to have a dead dog, dead kids and a dead girlfriend. So I jump in and restrain the dog by the throat till his eyes are bulging and severely scold him with words grossly unfit for the children around to hear. But I really don't care at the moment. The owner comes running up, saying "oh, I am sorry, he just gets out sometimes." She puts a leash on the 130 pound mutant and walks away. As she passes one of her friends she laughs and proudly expounds "my dog sure can kick ass."
Now we were fine up until that point, dogs will be dogs and dog fights happen so we were willing to forgive and forget. (My dog only suffered a little nip to the ear (but I had not yet realized that his life vest had absorbed some huge bites)
So anybody that knows Joni, my GF, knows she has a set of lungs on her. Her demands for me to remove the kitchen trash can cut through solid walls of a living room, bedroom, garage wall and be heard over grinding steel. Joni screams and the entire park goes silent. She proceeds to verbally tear that woman a new azzhole. I'm sitting there trying not to feel bad for that bitch because I have been on the receiving end of that sonic boom. Then I realize, something heavy in my pocket, OMG, the camera! I pull it out and can see the ocean, sand and all. I look at the dog and he's panting with what looks like a grin. I think to myself, he must have the attention span and IQ of a carrot. I'm shaking, the dog is fine. Figures. Joni finally finishes her rant and I realize my right arm is missing, well, I exaggerate, but it feels like it had been torn off. I gather my things and hobble off in defeat. My favorite digital camera is now a fish tank. That's how my day went LOL

Laughing is always the better choice, I mean there are certain exceptions like if I said my mother died. You probably wouldn't want to laugh at that. But if I said my mother died while feeding a 20 foot alligator a marshmallow, you sort of have to laugh. It is one of those, "welllll yeeaaahhh Duhhhhhhhh" things.

So sorry. But did you manage to save the memory card? They do dry out and sometimes you can still retrieve images.

That woman and her dog ... I hate people like that, especially when they own and mismanage animals.

Odly enough, I took the advice of a stranger that witnesses the ordeal and he said to put the camera in a bag of rice. I did and last night it looked dried out, the water beads behind the view window were gone but there must have been some remaining internally because when I put the batteries back in, it got nearly too hot to touch. So, that fried the ability to take pictures, but the ones on the camera card can still be viewed and they downloaded fine. Freakin Nikon's rule. I was amazed. Yeah, people like that lady are a curiosity. I think her statement was an attempt to deflect the embarrassment she must have felt. It turns out that dog has a long history of attacking other dogs. She and her pup are apparently very disliked in the neighborhood. Go figure LOL

It sounds like your mistake was in restraining the mutant dog above water.
