Ok - this is just a vent and if there is a more appropriate place for this, by all means mods, please move it. I went out to dinner tonight with some good friends - I've been in all week, thought I would treat myself to a night with the girls. Back in October of last year, I rescued a one year old Basset Hound - she really is quite a nice dog and I already have an 8 year old Basset - so I'm familiar with the breed and their capabilities - so I know we are still in a puppy stage and that EVERYTHING needs to be out of her reach. Believe me when I say my fireplace mantle looks like a garage sale - with remotes, magazines, Yankee candles, books, etc... I came home tonight to find a pair of my slippers totally ripped apart - not acceptable but definitely my fault for leaving them out. THEN I FOUND MY SB800 SPEEDLIGHT IN HER DOG BED - I almost threw up when I saw it. I had all of my equipment securely placed out of her reach (or so I thought) and there the flash was, with a cracked shield on the flash - other than that, it looked ok. I haven't tested it yet. I feel ill and just had to vent - don't know if anyone here can relate - I love this dog dearly but tonight, she tested my limits. As I type I am headed for a glass of cabernet. I went to Nikon school today and was really happy with how the day went and that I learned so much...now this. UFB. Thanks for letting me vent - and yes it's ok to laugh!!! I had to or else I'd cry!
