An Inspiation for Pet Lover’s, Everywhere!……….*)*

This is a story about a dog who was born on Christmas Eve in 2002.
He was born with 3 legs – 2 healthy hind legs and 1 abnormal front leg which needed to be amputated.
He of course could not walk when he was born. Even his mother did not want him.

He was rejected and scorned.

His first owner also did not think he could survive. Therefore, he was thinking of putting him to sleep.
At that time, his present owner, Jude Stringfellow, came into his life and wanted to take care of him.
She was determined to teach and train this dog to walk by himself. She thought, all we need is a little faith.

Therefore, she named him ‘Faith.’

In the beginning, she put Faith on a surf board to let him feel the movements of the water.

Later she used peanut butter on a spoon as a lure and to reward him for standing up and jumping around.
Even the other dogs at home helped to encourage him to walk.
Amazingly, after only 6 months, like a miracle, Faith learned to balance on his 2 hind legs and
jumped to move forward.

After further training in the snow, he can now walk like a human being.

Faith loves to walk around now.

His present owner, Jude Stringfellow, has given up her teaching job and plans to take him
around the world to show
‘that even without a perfect body one can have a perfect soul.’

In life there are always undesirable things.

Perhaps a person who feels things are not going as well as they could will feel better if they change their point of view

and see things from another perspective.

Perhaps this message will bring fresh new ways of thinking to everyone.

Perhaps everyone can appreciate and

be thankful for each beautiful day that follows.

Life is the continual demonstration of the power of thinking positive and having faith.

Believe in yourself.

Never lose faith.

Thanks Pam!
