1. interesting story
2. great story
Heard of a few similar ones in the past. Nice that this family /neighbors "understood " doggy correctly
3. I believe this, because...

A similar thing happened to my brother-in-law, invoving a goat: I really do not know what to make of these stories, but I feel they should not be ignored. A good year to all, Dave
4. Say what you want, that is a nice looking dog

It looks too well kept to be a stray.
5. Hasgacha

He might have refused to eat because he did not trust the kashrus. When they told him you are forgiven. He took to it.
6. Make the dog Prime Minister...
Ari   (09.18.06)'d probably do a better job than Olmert, and at least there is a chance it actually has a Jewish soul.
7. How "voluntary" was this dog leaving?
John Starbird ,   Roswell NM, USA   (09.18.06)
For a non-Jew, like myself, this is a fascinating peek into the Jewish pysche. Stories like this are interesting but just from reading the details as printed in this paper I am highly skeptical that this event really took place. The story says the dog left voluntarily after the ritual but just look at the 2nd photo of this dog; being led away at the end of a capture stick by an animal control official doesn't agree with my definition of "voluntary"!
8. # 3 beauiful story
9. #7 good point
10. To #7 It is a non-Jewish neighborhood !

The dog was probably another son of a bitch that thought he belonged there.
11. I see your holy dog . . .
Steve G ,   Kew Gardens,NYC   (09.18.06)
I see your holy dog . . . and raise you two talking fish praising Allah. This important theological event is nearly as important as the question of why there are not many haredi bowling leagues.
12. so its meant to be
yaffa artzi ,   ny,ny   (09.19.06)
this is a great story. in any event we know that dogs have a history of having a connection with the world beyond, i mean remember how they did not bark when the jews left mitzrayim?
13. What about the dog.......
Me ,   Here   (09.19.06)
that keeps coming back to the PM's office?
14. #13: LOL
Yair ,   South Africa   (09.19.06)
Good one. :)
15. If a Dog Chews His Cud?
Yousef al-Khattab ,   Tetouan,Morocco   (09.19.06)
Would he be condidered Chewish?
16. The Dog

I do not think it is necessary to believe that the same God who has given us our senses, reason, and intelligence wished us to abandon their use, giving us by some other means the information that we could gain through them
