Freddie the 2 year old wolfhound is doing better, doesn't howl as much just whines. But we show him alot of attention and tell him we will be back when we leave for work in the morning and tell him goodnight when we go to bed. He has his appetite back and that is a very good thing ( I think). After I get my female fixed then he will have a new companion. Freddie was born on Friday the 13th along with his brother Jason. Freddie has soft tissue damage on his paws and his first 6mos he was in casts that were painted orange and green. But he isn't the nightmare as his namesake. I'll have to post a picture of him soon.
