labs and phones don’t mix

In Cool Tech, Me on August 3, 2007 at 3:04 pm

My 18 month old lab puppy Cameron just got a hold of my cellphone. I was playing with him in the backyard, apparently dropped it and didn’t notice. My wife went out just a few minutes later to feed him and found this:

We were very lucky that the lithium-ion battery was well built and didn’t explode, despite being dented by no fewer than about 20 teeth marks on both sides.

This was a really awesome phone. I’m very sad to loose it. Thankfully i still have my old phone and the SIM card appears to have been undamaged. I wonder if the chess game i bought for $6 for this phone can be downloaded to my old phone, or whatever phone i might eventually get next? Or did i just lose it?

For the record: though my sister has a bad reputation and regularly burns through phones, this is the first phone out of…at least 6 or 7…that i have owned that i have ever had damaged or lost. I’m usually really good about these things.

Man this sucks.

    It all makes sense now…I had what I thought was a call from you around 4:50, but all I heard on the other end was GRRRRRRRRRR!!
    I thought you were just mad….

    Hey! Watch it, buddy. You don’t check your bothers blog for a few days and he starts making comments about you (true as they may be).
