11 Things I Learned From My Dog (Slideshow Story)

9. Run

When we would let Puppy off her leash to run she would lose ten years, figuratively. It would always be a chore to get her back on the leash and bring her home, she loved running in the hills near our house so much. It took ten years off my age just watching her, it would bring me back to a time that everything was new, fresh. Puppy must have run through those fields hundreds of times, but she was always excited to run through them again. I learned from Puppy that a good run does you good, and it makes your life that much more fun when you get excited about things you love doing.

    The dog feels emotion without constraints, that is why in Hebrew he is named “kalev” which means “according to the heart”. The dog is pure heart without artifice or hidden agendas.In Arabic, which is derived from Hebrew the word for dog is “kalb” which sounds only very slightly different from the related word “qalb” which means heart.

    Jack: that was beautiful…I first met Puppy about a month or 2 after she joined the family. I was amazed that every time I came to visit, Puppy wouldn't bark. She remembered me…whether it was 6 months, a year or 2 since I was last in Israel…I never could believe that…we will miss you Puppy on our next trip!!
