Back page: Israel’s first dog quarantined

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel’s first canine is in the dog house after biting two guests at the Prime Minister’s Hanukkah candle lighting ceremony. Benjamin Netanyahu posted a family portrait — including his wife, two sons and dog Kaiya —on Facebook Friday morning. “Last night our whole family lit the fifth Hanukkah candle before we were sadly forced to send Kaiya to quarantine, as required by law,” he wrote. Kaiya sunk her teeth into parliamentarian Sharren Haskel and the husband of deputy foreign minister Tzipi Hotovely, both of ruling Likud, on Wednesday. Neither was seriously hurt. Israeli cities may quarantine biting dogs for 10 days. Heskel laughed off the incident, tweeting: “As someone who was once a snake wrangler, a small bite from a dog doesn’t excite me.” Netanyahu adopted the dog in July.
