What a huge bummer! I love the puppies! They sure are cute and sassy!

Beth at Aunties said...

OH, NO! I am so sorry!;{

AND....I hurried on over here so fast to see a current picture! LOL

Now, for great cameras Diane Of A Picture is worth a Thousand Words just did a post with the same question and people weighed in. I really took notes.

I think Janie ~ Southern Lady takes gorgeous pictures and she gave her advice on Diane’s blog.

Our good friend Sharon~ A New England Life also did a great post about cameras several months back.

Bless your heart!

LOL! I'm so sorry that I'm laughing. I know I shouldn't be laughing, but I can't help it. The picture of you is just amazing. Makes me use my imagination for sure.

Sorry about your camera...REALLY!!!
-FringeGirl

The Nice One said...

OH. MY.

OH how awful! SO sorry about the camera. At least there was a good story....

Cherie said...

OK I am SO laughing about the last picture - Very Creative!!!!

Bummer about the camera I have done that before.

Happy Friday :D

Kristina P. said...

Hey, at least you got some cutes pics!

And you look amazing! Did you do something different with your hair?

Becky said...

You are so beautiful!!! I wish I looked half as good as you. I'm so sorry about your camera, although I am laughing because the same thing would definitely happen to me! Have fun camera shopping!!!

jewelryandgiftsbyrebecca said...

I laughed so hard I peed; see what having 3 kids will do for you. (#*!% bladder control).
I love the line about the strawberry shampoo and whining like a girl. If it weren't for the pixs of the doggies, I would swear that conversation took place here on bath night.
As for the camera, I feel your pain. The hubby dropped ours in the pool 2 years ago when our daughter went under and forgot to just stand up. He stepped in to scoop her up and down went the camera.

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Oh NO! Sorry about your camera - for 'cheap' but takes great pictures, I really like my Kodak EasyShare camera...I'm saving up to get a Canon Rebel - I have one, but it's one that takes pictures on actual film...I would love to have the digital version instead! ;)

Love the pictures of the bath - our dogs are getting baths this weekend, too - they need it desperately! ;)

Great picture of you at the end - you look so angelic! LOL! :)

Shauna said...

I LOVE this!!!! What a great post! Thanks for the smile :)

roy/elisabeth dean said...

Nikki! You're just like I imagined!

I hope Crumpet and Ozzie have gotten over their baths by now. It probably helped that the camera went in the tub....I'll bet they are STILL laughing!

My camera is a GE and I LOVE it! Very user friendly~

Have a Happy First Day of Spring!
♥,Lilly

Carolynn said...

Nikki!!!! I was just thinking to myself, "Wow. That's pretty amazing that she can bathe her dogs AND take photos at the same time." I guess I spoke too soon. That really bites, girl!

I use a little Panasonic DMC-TZ1 with 10x magnification. I love it, although I'm thinking that if I'm going to get serious about photography, I may have to get something a little more serious. It's a great camera, though. Check it out. It wasn't expensive.

Coloradolady said...

Put your camera in a baggie of rice...uncooked rice for a few days. Don't open, it works for dropping cell phones in water, maybe it would take the moisture out of the camera...I'd try that first. The rice will take in the water and dry the phone's out to work again...worth a try. Sorry about that! What a bummer.

Jana said...

Oh no! But YES! I do know a great...not too expensive camera!!!! Go to Wal-Mart and find the Canon Powershot SD790 IS. We looked at it at another store but it was cheaper at W. I took it to Hawaii with us and it took beautiful pictures plus it has some fun features to it. It's small enough to just keep in your purse all the time too. It's as good as my expensive Sony.

Melissa said...

I am laughing hysterically! Great, funny post!! Sorry, I can't help you on the camera deal. Splenda bought my awesome one! All I know is he got a fantastic deal on a Cannon PowerShot SX110 IS 9.0 Mega Pixels at the Wal-Mart!

The Blue Ridge Gal said...

I've worried about this happening to me. I try to always use the wrist strap or the neck strap on my larger camera... i know, i know... that's water under the bridge for you now. Not sure what you consider to be overly expensive for a camera, but all of the Canon Powershot series are good. I had have had the SD450 for years... I think it's now been upgraded to the SD700 or 720.... not sure. Love the Canon brand although others swear by Nikon. Rue over at PB&J uses a nice camera too, the Canon G10. Looks like she gets great photos with it.

Good luck!

Laura said...

Coloradolady has some good advice. Take the battery out ASAP. Let it all dry out and try later. I did that with a cell phone once and it was okay. Depends how quickly you retrieved it.

Did the boys "shake" to get you back. The trick by the way is to blow in their ear. Makes them shake every time!

Gary ("Old Dude") said...

good post, has humor AND pathos!! (lol)

Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

I always know your blog is going to make me smile! Except -- get a new camera soon! (I think someone got his revenge!)

michelle said...

You are just too stinking funny! When my husband tells me I am getting ridiculous "about the damn dogs" I just send him over to your blog... and he laughs too!

hellosweetworld said...

Hehe...sorry to laugh but the post is funny.

Oh boy, a new camera! I love those. Hehe. Aside from my big DSLR, to shop for a smaller digital camera, i just go to BestBuy and try them out in the store so I know how the camera operates and can see it take the photos. I know this isn't very helpful or technical for a photographer but i really just have to see how it works and the quality of the photos before i can decide.

Ashley ~ said...

Aww, the poor mistreated little darlings in the tub. (SMILE) Hilarious*!!! Thanks for the smiles*! _Ashley*

Happy To Be said...

Og girl I wanted to know what you looked like and now I know your a blur...I'll remember your face in a line up girl...those poor puppies I bet they smell great now..another great post Nikki...and I can't tell you about what kind of camera to get I got 2 of them and hate them both..Happy Friday to you...hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

DiPaola Momma said...

Oh wholy POO they sound just like my less fury kids! oh and yep you're gonna need a new camera.. did the same thing two weeks ago trying to capture the all important naked bubble bath pics of the toddler for their future dating lives... DO NOT buy a Kodak Easy Share.. it sucks!

Michelle said...

Dropping your camera in the tub in order to get a new one........you clever girl. :)

No matter what you buy, most digital camera's these days take great shots.

I have a Nikon Coolpix S550. I don't remember how much it cost, but it was probably between $250-$300. They go on sale a lot and are pretty easy to use.

Canon power shots also come highly recommended. If you want a SLR then I really love the ease of use of the Canon Rebel series.

One thing you will notice is that the less expensive cameras tend to run on disposable batteries. I would recommend spending a little more and getting a camera that has lithium battery's.

I can't wait to see what you get.

Susan S. said...

Those pups AND you are so funny! Carson knows as soon as I start running water in the hall bath....it's HIS TIME! He retreats to his crate and has a look like...."I'm perfectly fine...right here". He doesn't put up a fight but he doesn't jump in willingly either. He's just resigned to the fact...he's STINKs and needs a bath.

Sorry about your camera!

Sandy Toes said...

Your features are wonderful~
sandy toe

Diane @ Four Paws and Co said...

OMG Nikki, this is hysterical! How do you get both dogs in the tub at once? I fight to bathe one at a time! Just as I thought, wow, she's got both dogs in the tub at once AND can take pictures too, PLOP & into the tub the camera went. Hee hee hee. Sorry, this is just so stinkin' funny!

My Kodak Easy Share doesn't take very good pictures & I don't the disposable batteries.

I'm using a Casio Exilim but I want a new camera, so let me know what you decide on...

Good one Nikki! ☺♥☺

Amy said...

Oh I am so sorry about your camera, I'd be sick, but this was a hysterical post if that makes you feel any better.

You look great, by the way! :D

Our really empty nest said...

Nikki, You are stunning as I knew you would be. Anyone who is that great on the inside has to be beautiful on the outside too. Sorry to be laughing at your poor cameras expense. Sue

Aileigh said...

I love picture stories and that one was by far the best! :) Even though you lost your camera. Sorry about that! You can get a pretty good Olympus for about $150 on Amazon. I got the FE 370 I think. The puppies are adorable and anybody that WOULD NOT want to get into that awesome looking tub is crazy. You can bathe me next time! :P

Aileigh said...

Not literally... I just meant I like your tub! Gosh, I hope no guys read this! :) Bow chick a wow wow!

tardevil said...

You are such a nut! You crack me up everytime! :O) Have a great weekend. Stop by sometime to enter my giveaway!

salmagundi said...

Love the up-to-date picture of you. Those are the kind of myself I like best, too. Good luck camera shopping! I bet Crumpet and Ozzie were laughing out loud at you - thinking revenge, revenge!!! Sally

Heather said...

Oh no!

I second the suggestion to try the bag of rice trick for the camera (after taking the battery out which hopefully you did already)... worth a shot!

As for new cameras, I've been pretty happy with the Sony Cyber-shot I won from SITS last summer. Only drawback is that it doesn't do really well in very low-light conditions. For outside (like when we went to Disney World last summer) shots and regular light inside shots, it is great!

I had a Kodak Easy Share before this one and it was always good for me, though it was old by the time I replaced it. I don't know how the newer ones are.....

H.K. said...

Sorry about the camera, but at least you got some good story lines with the blurry ones!

Wish I could help you with the camera. We have a camera that we're still trying to figure it out and we bought it several years ago!

Grand Pooba said...

Ha! Totally something I would do! And you are SO cheating with that portrait!

Scary Mommy said...

A camera is a small price to pay for a kick ass blog post, no? LOL!!! I hate giving my dog baths. She is in DIRE need and I'm just not dealing with it. Poor thing.

And I totally love you for adding the button. Thank you, thank you, thank you! :)

Darlene said...

OH NO...I can't believe you dropped your camera in the tub!!!!! At least the doggies are clean....lol

tam said...

Nikki you are a NUT! LoL! But I like nuts! I need to buy a new camera too-thanks to the old guy-he dropped both cameras we had! Now I have to borrow my son's camera. Good luck with that-let us know what kind you get and how you like it. Hope you have a rockin weekend sister!~Tam:D

tammy said...

Oh crap! I've dropped many a book in the tub, but never a camera.

Lisa Loo said...

You can put me on the list for a bath from Nikki too--shazaam thats a nice tub!!

I was thinking--really?? We FINALLY get a picture??! Gives a whole new meaning to the word--she is only a shadow of her former self...

I will trade you my fancy Canon for that bedroom of yours---

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

Loved your latest photo! I'm impressed!!

Sorry about your camera but at least the puppies smell good!

Sandi @the WhistleStop Cafe said...

You look great! That camera takes years off~
You always crack me up!!

Nana said...

Your really look different w/o your make up on.

I hope your camera is not ruined.

Lori said...

You are so funny!!! I am totally laughing at you..hehehe

I love the photo of you!!!
I don't know much about cameras.

Erin said...

Oh man! What luck that you would drop the camera in the water. We bought one at Costco last month that was $214, on sale for $114. And it has like 10 MPs or something like that. Good luck dear!

Kristen said...

Wow just when we were about to see the end...just like recording a movie...LOL

BTW
I deleted my blog by accident...but I can still comment yeah!
I guess I'll be starting over

Kristen Andrews said...

so cute bummer about the camera, that is something I would do.

Sincerely Yours said...

Funny! We look like sisters! I dropped my cell in the toilet once (no before!!) and after I cleaned it and let it dry out it worked!!! Maybe the same thing will happen after its dried a few days???? I have a Kodak inexpensive one but you can see by my pictures????whether or not you want one!lol Good Luck! I knew I heard something all the way from Mass!!!Have a fun weekend - Jeannette

Justine/Justiney/Tiney said...

ROFLMAO! Okay, I'm sorry for laughing. I mean, you drowned your damn camera. But I can't help laughing when you put up posts of the boys. I did NOT see the camera falling in the tub coming, even though you just told me yesterday your camera broke. That's 'cause you didn't tell me HOW it broke!

Now I want you to tell me what brand dog food you give your pretty boys.

JUstine :o )

Tootsie said...

this was funny until the end!!! oh wow...I would love to help...but Canadian prices are different...now about that photo of yourself....get a new camera!!!! your pups are just the greatest sports too!

Mimi Sue said...

Your puppies like the bath about as much as mine. I got a new camera for Christmas. A nikon coolpix something or other. I thought, woohoo, I'm gonna take some great pictures! Um, no. In my case I guess it's the photographer and not the camera that takes the great pictures. Mimi

Midwest Mommy said...

lol! Oh no I can't believe you dropped the camera in the water. The pics were super cute though.

Lizzie said...

oh no!

well it least the pooches are clean and strawberry scented right?

you look FABULOUS by the way!! ;)

Kris said...

Nikki, You look a little pale. I think some time in the sun would do you some good.

So sorry to hear about your camera, but look on the bright side, you're going to get a new one out of the deal. I think you could sell dog photos to raise money.

Have a happy day

Kris

mbkatc230 said...

Great post and great pix (until the unfortunate incident) Wonderful self portrait lol. DH got me a Coolpix L18 for Christmas - I love it, it's super easy to use and it takes better pictures than I deserve. DH himself has 2 high zoot digital cameras with all kinds of stuff and you have to set the f stops or something and change lenses, so I don't touch those! Kathy

Swirl Girl said...

I once dropped a camera (the kind with actual film in it) into a toilet (read: hole in the ground) at a campground in Greece. I guess it's all for the best,though - I destroyed the evidence (heh, heh).

I love my little pink Sony ...

Quirkyloon said...

Nice self-photo Nikki!

I always knew you would be a beauty!

*snicker*

LOL

Another great and funny post!

Pedaling said...

first of all, that picture of you
SO, DOES NOT COUNT.
2nd your dogs are really pretty good in the tub.
and 3rd i think these days, all digital cameras are pretty decent.
i say you can't go wrong with a cannon. and cannon.

Renna said...

I never thought about bathing both dogs at one time. Just my luck, the DPS (Dog Protection Services) would show up at my door, and take away my dogs.

I love your 'do'. I'm picturing you in an afro. ;-Þ

Nancy Jane said...

Oh nooooo...not your camera! Where will we get our Ozzie and Crumpet fix??? Get a new one, quick! Nancy
PS: Your picture didn't do you justice...You are a tall willowy size 6 natural blonde, aren't you?

Jared y Jessica Gale said...

You look fabulous darling..../evil smile
But I COULD post a current picture for all of your blog friends to view...

jkjkjkjk ;D
































maybe...lololol /evil laugh

Marrdy said...

Oh goodness. I am really trying to not laugh. Hubby is trying to not laugh. We just can't help ourselves. So sorry your camera took a plunge but what a stunning picture of yourself! It looks just like you.....Oh, and go Jazz. I will kick all your butts if you loose this one! (And Nikki will help me!!)

Tracey said...

Okay I was cracking up until you dropped your camera in the tub!!
So sorry!! I am not much of a camera buff, I have a Sony cybershot that works great for me!

Joy said...

Hi Nikki, I was so excited to see pics of the dogs--I gasped with excitement! Then, I laughed the best laugh I have had all day. I've been waiting with baited (dog?) breath for you to post some pics of the guys. I just love 'em. No suggestions for the camera--- new ones aren't too expensive--they've come down in price. Looks like Ozzie needs a trim???

Beth said...

Why, you look great! Fabulous!

As for cameras - I always stick with Canon.

Linda's Blue Gate said...

Oh my those dogs...... what a hoot....
I had to bath the baby goats today...... bad diarrhea...... shampooed their sweet little nasty butts...
HUgs
Linda.

Ginger said...

Hi Nikki:
My dog, Zeus, is telling me "don't get any ideas, mom"..he needs a bath so bad. Darn that's a shame about the camera going in the tub. I am wondering if you can dry it out, like commenters have suggested. The only digital camera I have ever used are Sony. Still have our first one from 6 years ago. Just depends on how much you want to spend, I guess.
Loved your picture, lol.
Ginger

Jenners said...

Karma is a bitch!
And don't think we'll let you off the hook that easily for a current photo!
And Canon has lovely cameras.

Suzann @ Lavender and Roses said...

Gosh I love you! You always make me smile. Can't help ya with the camera deal. I'm still trying to beg for "The Rebel" my camera stinks.

Gaston Studio said...

What a great post! Just what I needed to end a busy week.

I vote for Canon.

Charli and me said...

Hi Nikki, I just got a Kodak and I don't like it at all. I sent my old camera to the shop for repairs. It's a olympus. Loved your post. Your dogs are just precious!

Mrs. B. Silly said...

Poor Nikki, sorry about your camera : (
Great picture of you btw, you look so young!

Lazenby Family News said...

Neat photo journal of bath time! And I LOVE the comments! Your picture is fuzzy, did you know that? I'm glad my camera is in the car because if someone took a picture of me, it would look like I was in the movie signs. Round, rubber, snap-in curlers with my hair wrapped around them. I'm scaring my family. No scare. Well, the same thing. (((hugs)))

Peggy-Just A Plain Gal said...

Hmmm! First, Crumpet threatens revenge (notice that his eye is GREEN in the pic!). Second, your camera drops into the bath water. Could Crumpet possibly be a poltergeist???? I have to wonder how in the world he managed to do that!

Anyway, this is one hilarious post, as usual, and I use a Kodak EasyShare. But, do try to dry out your camera first! After all you can't possibly hurt it now, can you?

Jan the crazy lady said...

Not the tub Nikki? No no no... You do realize that camera's do not require baptism. Right?

Love the dog tales. Those poor little clean freaks.

Does Strawberry Shampoo work good?

onlymehere said...

Hey, we could be twins!! Love the picture of you! I have a Canon Powershot and now that I've learned how to do close-ups without blurring them I'm loving it! It wasn't too bad, about $200.00 (which actually is a lot for me but a lot of people consider that cheap). Sorry it got dropped in the tub but it made for a great blog! Gotta love Crumpie and Oz!

Joycee said...

Are you SURE you didn't drop the camera on purpose so you wouldn't have to post a current picture??? Super funny post, at least the pups are clean!

xinex said...

LOL! Sorry Nikki, I shouldn't laugh but your post is so funny but I am sorry you ruined your camera. You can get a waterproof one...Christine

Sue said...

I never know with you if your serious (camera fell into the tub) or your just saying that to get a laugh....It worked...and those poor animals...I think it's grounds for abuse!!

Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity said...

Nikki, You have no idea how much I've missed your blog. This was just to dam cute! You always make me smile. Thanks for the warm welcome back. It means more than you'll ever know!

Life on Bonnie Lane said...

Oh no! I can't believe you dropped the camera in the water!

I love how you made this into a story, lol.

So did the dogs survive their bath?

Kady

Cheryl said...

What a bummer! But hey, the dogs are clean and we got to see your picture. Very lovely :)
PS. I have a kodak and love it. Can't remember how much it was but it is nice.

The Garden of Egan said...

Oh, my heck, I'm still laughing! Those poor doggies!
My vote is on a Nikon D40, I love mine!

Anne Fannie said...

You crack me up! Your doggie conversations sounds like around my house! My dogs HATE baths. When I mention the B word..(Bath) they actually go and hide from me!
So sorry about the camera into the bathtub. I guess its better than dropping it in the toliet! LOL
Love, Ann

Fifi Flowers said...

YOU LOOK GREAT... so thin and tan and I love your hairdo... LOL!!!

I have a Canon Power Shot and I love it and it was not a fortune and it is small enough to throw in my purse...

Hmmmmm perhaps throw is not a good word in your case... lol

John Deere Mom said...

Oh no! I was just wondering to myself how you handled both dogs in the tub AND the camera. Apparently, you don't! :)
I recently got a Canon SD 770 Power Shot on Amazon with a huge free memory card for about $180. I highly recommend it!

Bo said...

Hi Nikki...when I can quit laughing (sorry)...I'll tell you how sad it is that your camera is ruined...at least, you were able to get a good shot of your beautiful self!...no advice about cameras...have you seen my photos? Oh, my Canon Powershot is fine...it's me that messes up!
Happy weekend! ;-) Bo

Jessica said...

Good morning gorgeous :)

I'm sorry I had to wait to comment, my guts hurt from laughing so hard. ( winks ) Sorry. I'm really a nice person but this was too much! I love your babies & I'm sorry about your camera. When mister & I got married ( back in the roll of film days...lol. ) we got a new camera so we took it on our honeymoon....dropped it in the sand. We where able to salvage the pics but you can see sand in them 1/2 way through our honeymoon...lol. We took it back ( after a cleaning ) and exchanged it....that's soooo bad isn't it...lol.

Have a great weekend!

Hugs~ J

Michele said...

Oh Nikki girl...you're gorgeous! I love me them doggies...and boys, Bear doesn't like his baths either!

Good luck with finding a good camera...Glenn bought me mine for my birthday...so no idea on that one!

Have a great weekend!
Hugz,
Michele

Lorri said...

LOL great post!!!

elaine said...

I'm sorry that I don't havew time to read your other comments to see if anyone else said this too. But--- Place your damaged camera into a container of rice and cover it. The rice will draw out the moisture...good luck. Your blog is great and I'll be back another time this is my first and gotta run. xox

Heather @ Sugar N Spice Mostly Nice said...

I love the picture of you. You look beautiful!!

My dogs hate getting baths. I would never be able to get a picture of them that didn't have water flinging everywhere. Your such a good mama, cute and well behaved!

carlotta said...

i am so sorry about your camera! i really love my casio exilim...it's not exactly for professional pictures, but it small and perfect for everyday things. it costs like $200 at amazon, but i bought mine on ebay for $115 - and that came with a case and battery.
btw, love your blog! i'm a new reader. :)

Blissful Babe said...

Oh my word!! That is so freaking funny!!! Love the pooches, so cute!!!
And love the photo of your beautiful home! It's like *one* of my dream homes! :p

Followed you here via "Yeah I'm Still Here"!!

cedwards55 said...

Nikki, You are a vision! Great post and I'm soooo sorry about the camera. Don't you have any reward points from a credit card or anything? I'm forever getting great stuff @ Best Buy with RewardPoints!!! Maybe the old one will dry out and morph back into a camera again. Hope so... in the meantime, keep your chin up!

Deb said...

Hi Nikki! So cute! My Mini Poo hate to take a bath too! Karma does bite! Oh! that picture of yourself, you could have drawn a face on or something. So, now we are still waiting on that picture of YOU! Deb

wendy said...

I LOVE THAT PHOTO OF YOU ---It's just how I imagined you would look!!!! (cheater)
Poor doggies.

Who Me?! said...

That is so funny! Bummer about the camera, but I've heard the rice trick works too! I am in desperate need for a new camera as well, so I'm gonna check out some of the suggestions here.

Thanks for needing a new camera right when I needed one, so thoughtful of you!

The Kooky Queen--Rachel said...

I remember giving our family dog a bath and him running his ears all over the carpet for the next 4 hours. They really DO hate it! :) CUTE pics!

Rue said...

Hi Nikki :)

Rich bought me George my Canon G10 and he's pretty easy to use without even reading the manual LOL

You amaze me! How do you get two dogs into one bathtub??

hugs,
rue

LadyFi said...

I'm laughing so hard here... But sorry to hear about your camera...

Gardner Family said...

Oh, that is funny. The dogs had the last laugh on that one.
Try putting your camera in a ziploc with an oxygen packet to dry out the moisture. I've heard it works for cell phones, maybe it will work on a camera. Good luck!

Yaya said...

Hahahahaha!

And I've dropped many a phone in the toilet and as soon as it completely dries out it works fine! Good luck!

kari and kijsa said...

We stopped in to say Thank You!
blessings,
kari & kijsa

The Blonde Duck said...

The Babies HATE baths. They pitch the biggest fit.

French Fancy said...

I loved your doggy posts the best and I kept having to turn my little laptop round so Mr FF could view the pics.

Shame about the camera

Anna Lefler said...

Um...you have a blow-dryer, right? What have you got to lose?

XO

A.

Fragrant Liar said...

I'm sorry, that all went by so dang fast, it's all a blur to me now. What do you look like again?

Jill said...

OH NO!!!!!!!!! I have done that with MANY cell phones and I always blame it on the kids... lol

You are hysterical.
I just bought a Kodak easy share camera last night for 90.00 I'll let you know how it is. YOU MUST GET A CAMERA! I wanted a much better one but now is not the time..

Tulsi said...

Very very smart with the photo of yourself!

bj said...

OOOO, I know how you feel about your camera...hubby bought me one for christmas and i dropped it..won't work now so need to send it off to have it fixed.
cute post!!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

YOU are one funny woman!! :)

Jamie said...

Oh no Crumpers, what did mommy go and do to you? Yeah, Karma...hehe! And lovely pic Nik, tee hee!

StampinMom :-)

dana said...

OK, OK, OK, OK!!! You need to stop messing with the blogging stuff and start publishing little "Blah, Blah, Blah Books!" You are so danged funny---how something as simple as a doggie plunge can turn into such a great post!! You are one fun and talented gal.

Hope you find a camera you like--mine is a Nikon Coolpix---very reasonable and it (usually!) takes great photos. As someone said in a comment, they do go on sale frequently. But so does most everything in this swell economy!

Dana

PS The picture of you was very---sneaky!!!

Twice as Nice said...

Sorry to hear about the camera but atleast the dogs smell good. Next time you need to give them a bath I would see if hubby could be the photographer. You need an assistant! Or bathe one dog at a time and let the other take the pictures, I know they are that talented!

Michael said...

LOL...ok, what a crack up! Not really, but I couldn't help but laugh. My favorite digital camera is the Canon Digital Elph...you can get them at Costco for next to nothing and it's really the BEST point and shoot digital camera ever. When I was living in Germany, I took over 10,000 pictures with mine and my pics always came out great.

Then again, I know there's a new waterproof camera on the market (not sure of the brand) but maybe I should be recommending that one, LOL.

At least the boys smell pretty :o)

Becky said...

Oh I am so sorry about your camera! That really stinks:( You are right though...that was total doggy karma biting you in the butt!

Cadance said...

sorry about your camera...but it made for a Hilarious post!!!

hey....I'm lucky #300 on your follow list!!! That must be a good thing!

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Love your "Blah, Blah, Blah" sign! How neat is that? I'm running behind, because my internet service at home is dead! I'm at my office trying to check out some of the action in Blogland. Your dogs are so cute and always so smart. I cannot believe they couldn't talk you out of the bath! I really thought you were just "saying" you dropped your camera, because it made such a funny end to the story! So sorry you really did drop your camera, but I'm still laughing, cause it was a perfect ending for the story! laurie

NO ONE MAKES ME LAUGH. I'M ONE OF THOSE LAUGH-CHALLENGED PEOPLE. If there was a prize for making me giggle, you'd have it.

(but that water was pretty dirty)

I hate dropping stuff in the tub.

But you look fab.

Oh no! The challenges of being a steady blogger! THAT must be why my husband always stresses to wrap the strap around my wrist.
Your post was very funny. Sorry to hear about your camera. I have a Fuji S8000fd that I really like, I haven't fully learned it because I am slightly camera dumb!

Hi,

I am a little late leaving you a comment about cameras- but here goes - after dropping and breaking two digital cameras I decided that I needed to have a larger digital that had more "beef" to it. I bought one of the NIKON DX models and love it. It has a nice big strap that I put around my neck and it fits my hand better. So far so good - I have not dropped it yet.

P.S. I learned to buy the extended warranty that covers any damage, except water, after dropping two other cameras.

Hello to the clean dogs from Bentley,
Blessings,
Erin

LOL! That is so funny! My hubby dropped ours in the ocean. What camera doesn't enjoy a nice salty mineral bath?!


Just passing through blogland. Found you through Beth at Blissful Babe. Love finding other LDS mom bloggers! Fun!

Holy crap!

So glad the rice suggestion worked.

Psssssst. a little teensy secret and seeing that it's going to be buried in your millions of comments...I'm going to be giving away another Canon soon. And it's an AWESOME one! Just sayin'!

BTW, your little story here is exactly why I no longer give Casey bath's at home. our groomer has 5 stations with huge steel tubs and big commercial dryers for people that want to bring their dogs in for a bath. I've used it twice and love it. And I can tether Casey to the tub so he don't go bat-crap crazy. Of course, he's perfect for the groomers. Never gives them ANY trouble. Damn dog!

Oh you poor babies! Kipper feels your pain. This is his bath weekend but SSH! HE doesn't know it! It will be a surprise!

Your momma isSO funny. Please tell her I adore her!

Love,
Sue
