11 Things I Learned From My Dog (Slideshow Story)

8. Bark!

Don’t be afraid to let someone know that you don’t trust them, or what they’re up to. When someone came to the door that Puppy didn’t know, she would bark. Sure, that can be a little intimidating for guests, but I’d rather be safe. Once she saw that we trusted a guest, she would go back to her daily nap. I learned from Puppy that it’s okay to call someone out when you don’t trust them. I found that it’s usually good that I said something, because people usually put their own interests first, whether it’s justified or not.

    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!!
