You can call me Fred

So one of the things we read is that you shouldn’t overuse your dog’s call name; you want him to know he should party attention when you use it. Makes sense, sort of like when your mother used your full name to tell you she means business. With Spencer, we have all kinds of pet names for him, but none that had emerged as a viable alternate common name until now. I often call him the ‘Fraidy Dog and yesterday told him I wished he wouldn’t be so afraid. Greg repeated part of my sentence with a French accent, and “afraid” came out “Fred”. I think we might have a winter!
