11 Things I Learned From My Dog (Slideshow Story)

7. Protect the people you love

My grandmother lives with us, in a separate, but adjacent, apartment. Whenever my grandmother would go to answer the door, Puppy would come running to see who it was. She cared about us, and even saved us from several burglaries. I learned from Puppy that if I care about someone, I should make sure that they are okay. If a guest stays late, I make sure that they can get home safely — it’s not just chivalry. It’s safety.

    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!!
