K01 as dog deterrent

UPS delivered my K01 at noon today, so I took it out at dusk for a walk around the neighborhood. On passing a (not high enough) wooden fence, I heard a large dog barking. Then I heard it scratching on the fence. Then I saw it's big head and paws at the top of the fence, and gaining height!

In a panic, I bopped him on the head with what I had in my hand - my new K01 with 40mm ltd!

The dog fell back and appeared none the worse for wear, I avoided a bite, and my camera and lens are just fine.

Gotta love that sturdy metal construction - and it takes great pictures too!

In retrospect, I could have just taken a picture of the snarling dog - with fill flash.

lol great story! I'm glad you came out without a scratch, and that the camera still works as well (and the dog probably learned a lesson)

The flash alone would freak our pit bull out. Smile for the Pentax, with the teeth please.

and in an unrelated news story, todays headlines:
Bob the worlds friendliest dog won't be at the childrens hospital visiting sick kids for a while.
in an apparent, unprovoked attack Bob the dog was hit in the head with a brick, while in his own yard minding his own business...
Police are investigating, and have a suspect.
Apparently the suspect Marc Newson, autographed Bob's head after hitting him with the brick....
