Very Sorry about some of the pictures being shown-half way. To see them full-view and in completion, click on them and open in another tab/window.
Some of these go as far back as early-2007.
The oldest one of Treader:
Treader in the shelter, before he was even up for adoption. Yes, I did take this one. I didn't have the flash on, and Treader (then know as Camden) kept whining and standing on his hind legs over and over, that's why it's blurry. This is was taken June 21st, 2007.
|Here's Treader's adoption photo by shelter staff, taken July 16th:|
Treader on his first day at his new home:
Playing with his new toy sometime in early August.
Treader's old toy, Blink the alien. He eventually tore him up from playing tug-o-war so much with him and I threw him away.
Treader's old toy, Hedgie the Hedgehog. Got Hedgie as a gift for buying from 1-800 Pet Meds.
Treader leaning over to pick up his toy.

Screenshot from a video of Treader and Cookie gaiting.
An old tennis ball. Treader loves tennis balls, but we don't use them anymore because I read that they wear down a dog's teeth.
Treader staring at the camera. This is a unique and lucky shot. Treader never did that pose again.
A fashion pose! Treader with one of Cookie's bandanas. That bandana has since got missing...
Looking at these old pictures, it struck me how Treader has gained a great deal of fluffiness since then. He hasn't gained or lost much weight. It also struck me how his paws looked a different color...in older picture, they are pinkish, like the skin is showing through the fur. In pictures taken a few months after starting the raw diet, his paws are the color of the fur. Interesting.
Treader indoors on a hot day. I put the T-shirt on him. It belonged to me when I was 6 years old, and I just couldn't get over how small it was. When I let Treader out, he took it off in the backyard and hid it. XD
Gotta go, gotta go, gotta go right now...
Treader acting as a therapy dog for my dad.
Hey, another fashion shot! Treader found it boring.
Bases are loaded...
What a catch!
She's getting there!
She's making a grab for the ball...
...and she misses!
"Bally-bally-ball, I'm coming after you!"
"And it's an awesome save!"
"Come to papa...or mama...whatever."

Giving my brother his shots.
"Treader, I am your mother."
"OMD! You can't be! Nooooo!"
"Are you certain this is the latest style?"
"None of yo beeswax...nya!"
(Singing) "And the stone went 'round and 'round, and the giant came tumbling down..."
"Not so sharp now, are we Mister Sword?"
"I haz a Fan!"
"Buzz off, Bear. I don't need a fan."
"Yeah, yeah...a promotional for reading...just get it over with, 'kay?"
"Silly Wabbit, Trix is for kids!"
Thank you for this food. Amen.
Short 'n' sweet...let's eat!"
