Tracker, the amazing chicken dog

I'm a sucker for animals, especially dogs and cats. Tracker is my brother's dog. Back when Jonathan was traveling alot on the race team, Tracker would spend time at my grandparents or parents houses and I would visit to walk and play with him. I guess you could say we bonded. The second he hears my voice, he starts squeaking and squealing. He is also the biggest scardy cat you ever met. He is afraid of everything: vacuum cleaners, sudden movement, and apparently, cameras! After some play and petting time, I took out my camera looking around my mom's house for a shot. Tracker wouldn't come anywhere near the camera! He cautiously backed around the table and hid behind my mom. I had to get on my knees and crawl around my mom's chair to get this shot:

Blurry, but priceless! Tracker will soon be going to a new family. My brother leaves for Marine Corp bootcamp in a few weeks and Tracker will be adopted by someone else. Wish I could take him, but I can't. I certainly will miss his adorable little face!

What a great expression on his cute face. I think it is difficult to get an expression from an animal but you did it here!
You were correct in labeling it priceless!

his expression is adorable!
he somehow looks very intelligent, slightly amused and mildly curious all at the same time.
great shot.

I was thinking to myself "that's priceless!" before I scrolled down and saw what you had written! You sure captured a great expression. Sorry to hear you'll be losing not one, but two family members!
:-( Maybe you could visit Tracker in his new home?
