Dog Creates Lots of Little Pieces

My dog Harry’s propensity to eat inappropriate things about the size of a bar of soap has its precedents. (You may have noticed a lack of original photos lately?)

While I was here at the keyboard, Harry was under my chair chewing on his dog-bone. When Harry’s chewing on a bone that’s a very good thing.

After further inspection, however, I discovered Harry’s bone was my Nikon 560 camera. My second Nikon 560 camera — he ate the first one too. He didn’t actually eat them — just left lots of little pieces on the floor.

Maybe I need to try a different brand of camera.

There is a nice photo here of a contemporary solid-oak Red River ox cart driven by members of the Red River M├ętis Heritage Group. The story shares interesting history about the Metis people. Click on the link below --- LTD
