Recently things have begun to change and Phod is finding his voice.
He will sit and whine holding a toy on his bed waiting for you to call him over to play fetch. Sometimes if he is feeling really feisty he will put the toy beside you and if you don't throw it right away, will whine or give a short bark. A few times when he has wanted attention he will "talk" to let you know.
I am enjoying Phod's voice because with it is coming a confidence and comfort he didn't have when he first came. For example, we allow the dogs on the furniture. Before he wouldn't come up on it. If you called him up, he would tentatively get up. He always looked nervous and scared when this happened and had trouble relaxing. Now he just hops up if he wants, curl up and have a good sleep.
It is great to see that the neglect and abuse he faced the first year and a half or so of his life is fading away, leaving us with a Phody who talks!
