11 Things I Learned From My Dog (Slideshow Story)

3. Don’t waste food

It’s a lot easier to be environmentally friendly with your waste when you have a dog. Better than a compost heap in many ways, Puppy would always jump around excitedly when the meal was over and she knew she’d be getting her treat. (Even on Fraggle Rock a compost heap doesn’t jump for joy when you give it your leftovers.) Living with Puppy heightened my awareness of what I eat, and what I potentially waste. When I cook now, I try more carefully to judge portions and not waste good food.

    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!!
