11 Things I Learned From My Dog (Slideshow Story)

2. Stop and smell the flowers / Sniff out the news

When you’re a dog, you want the flowers to smell like dog-piss and Puppy would stop at every single flower to smell it. One challenging aspect of walking a dog is getting past every fire hydrant, or wall for that matter. After a rain it was always particularly difficult to get more than three feet with Puppy outside. But I guess it’s like Facebook for her. Which dog peed where? Is there anyone new it the neighborhood?

The reason why we’re obsessed with social networking is that it’s so important to know what is happening in your neighborhood. Craig’s List, and sites of a similar nature, were designed just for our “sniffing” purposes. Who’s new in town? Which is the best doctor to visit for X? Where can I get the best deals… In truth, you never know when you can lend a hand, or need an hand lent.

    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!!
