11 Things I Learned From My Dog (Slideshow Story)

11. Wear your emotions on your butt / Let people know how are feeling

You could always tell what mood Puppy was in. You just had to look at her tail. I learned about the power of being honest with my emotions from Puppy. If you don’t express how you are feeling, how can you expect the people around you to be sensitive to your needs? Like it or not, we are social, and part of living with others is giving them cues to how we are doing. Puppy would make sure I knew when she wanted to be petted, when she needed to go for a walk and when she just wanted to nap. It helped me be a good friend to her, as she was to me. Whenever I was down, she could tell and would come over and nudge me, make me pet her. It always made me feel better.

    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!!
