Monty, a two-year-old white Maltese, has a pretty cushy life. He gets lots of love from his owners, long walks around the neighborhood, playtime with his other doggie “friends,” and enough food to keep him fit and healthy (never table scraps). His only idiosyncrasy: he hates it when he’s left alone. So, when his owners planned a family trip to the Galilee, they were dreading the fact that they couldn’t take him too. They had tried leaving Monty with friends before, but that proved to be a disaster, as the friends didn’t get a wink of sleep that night. And a kennel just seemed cruel.

That’s the same kind of thinking that was keeping Shmuel Edelblum up at night.
