Sure. smiley.gif

He looks like he is finally losing weight and doing well. I give him fresh veggies in the afternoon, which he loves.
He talks (grunts) a lot now. I admit, I've grunted back and he answers. tongue3.gif Not sure what I'm saying, but once it made him come right up to me and I wasn't sure what he was expecting. I wanted to give him a scratch, but since I didn't know if I might have invited him to a duel or to mate, I decided not to.

On hot days, I make him a large mud puddle. I haven't seen him lay in it yet, but I've watched him push around the mud with his nose. One day he actually made his own mud puddle. He dumped out some of his water and then dug out some of the mud to make a hole to lay in. He's very smart. grin.gif

Sometimes when we are 'conversing' he seems to get really excited and almost sounds like he is barking. Is this good or bad?

Awwww-stin. tongue3.gif

Chattering can be good or bad. Generally, the more rapidly they vocalize, the more excited they are. It could be real happiness or agitation. Higher-pitched vocalizations are usually happy (except screeching and squealing for food); lower pitched or gutteral noises are agitation, anger, tantrum, and such. Glad he's interacting and winning at his diet.

Keep on freepin' on
