My hope is that this true story of Faith will touch your heart, help you to rediscover your own joy and gratitude and inspire you this holiday season as it has done for myself and my family. ~Dee (P.S. – Click photos to see the larger versions)

This Is FaithThis sweet pup was born on Christmas Eve in the year 2002. He was born with three legs – two healthy hind legs and one abnormal front leg which had to be amputated.

He of course could not walk when he was born. Even his mother did not want him.

His first owner also did not think that he could survive and he was thinking of ‘putting him to sleep’. But then, his present owner, Jude Stringfellow, met him and wanted to take care of him.

She became determined to teach and train this little dog to walk by himself.

She named him ‘Faith’.

In the beginning, she put Faith on a surfboard to let him feel the movement. Later she used peanut butter on a spoon as a lure and reward for him for standing up and jumping around.

This Is FaithEven the other dog at home encouraged him to walk. Amazingly, after only six months, like a miracle, Faith learned to balance on his hind legs and to jump to move forward. After further training in the snow, he could now walk like a human being.

Faith loves to walk around now.

This Is FaithNo matter where he goes, he attracts people to him. He is fast becoming famous on the international scene and has appeared on various newspapers and TV shows. There is now a book entitled ‘With a Little Faith’ being published about him. He was even considered to appear in one of Harry Potter movies.

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

This Is FaithIn life there are always undesirable things, so in order to feel better, you may just need to look at life from another direction.

I hope this message will bring fresh new ways of thinking to everyone and that everyone will appreciate and be thankful for each beautiful day.

Faith is the continual demonstration of the strength and wonder of life.
