Any suggestions on how to reduce howling?

I adopted Geoffrey in April, from a shelter that had rescued him from a puppy mill. He is doing great- has stopped chewing everything in sight, is housebroken, etc. Our only remaining problem is that sometimes when I leave for work, Geoff will howl for hours. Many times, but not always, he is much better when I leave him with a Kong or a bone, which is what I have been doing. This is a concern because i live in an apartment building. My neighbors all love Geoff, and I want them to continue to love him!!! He is two years old. I also have a cat, but I'm afraid she is not much company for him, as she is elderly.

Mine doesn't howl, but that's a first for me. In the past, I have left the cartoon network on pretty loud. That keeps them from barking at random noises in the hallway. As much as they like to look outside, if they see stuff, they will bark at it.
