05. Closure Scope example of inheritance

The wolf function definition is missing a name parameter:

function wolf () {
  const howl = () => {
    console.log(name + ': awoooooooo')
  }
  return { howl: howl }
}

It should be:

function wolf (name) {
 ...
}

Otherwise when you try and run the example, node says:

Rufus the dog: woof

    console.log(name + ": awoooooooo");                                                                                                               
                ^
