|the day she came into my life
For eighteen months this new friend has gone everywhere with me. Sadly when I had my friend out with me on Saturday 13th July 2013 the two of us had an accident together, just a minor one. We had been sharing the scenery of the river at Failford, just a few short miles away from the new home we moved into together a few weeks back,when we slipped on the banking, the two of us went down, hand in hand as we always are.
Whilst I escaped with little more than a grass stained bum and a large dent in my pride, the same cannot be said about my friend. My friend suffered serious damage, and I am saddened to tell you my friend has gone to camera heaven.
She went in the way every good camera should go, during the call to duty. This is the final picture that was taken by my trusty friend whilst she was out with me. Not particularly even a good picture, and if the fateful event had no happened probably a picture that would have been deleted never to be seen by anyone.
As you can see she valiantly attempts to start up, but the best she can muster is lens obstructed.

You were also there for the end of Shortdog which you captured gracefully in her last few weeks,
Sadly now it is your turn to leave me, we even tried surgery on you, but to no avail.
RIP little friend you will be sadly missed. It was a good life while it lasted.
