.... Next, to shoot the dog ...
With the camera, right? ;-)

Sorry to hear about the results. Unrecoverable failures do happen (although not usually by a dog biting a card).

Yes, as hard as it is to believe the dog really did eat my homework.
I set it on the table, went to turn on the tv and crunch! In 10 seconds it was history.

Want to ask that question again ...

Nah... we don't want to upset pet owners, since I suspect I know the answer already. ;-)

I guess this couple is lucky a shark didn't come along:

Memory cards can survive a lot. But, being "bite resistant" is probably not something the card manufacturers had in mind when designing them.

That is one amazing story. I just returned from the Titanic exhibition currently in NYC. It's amazing how some delicate personal effects survived 77 years at the bottom of the ocean. Then there's the story of the guy who missed the boat because he got shanghaied while his buddy who did make the voyage died. But NONE involved a GD dog!

Suing is what defines Americans. Sue the manufacturer! Suing is Patriotic!!!

Was there a warning label about not allowing your pet to chew on the cards? I thought NOT - Sue the SOB's!

(My lawyers charges are quite reasonable, and I get a finders fee)

Not true. There were several chew toys and a bone available in plain sight. Apparently this pooch likes to test everything in her mouth. A warning announcement might have been nice but I wouldn't have thought this would be a target. Why she went for a postage stamp size little nothing bit of stuff sitting on a very busy table top is quite maddening.

In any event it's dog gone now ...
