A Dog Named "Faith"

SeE tHe woRld! IT happens even to animals but with little faith………………..

This is 'Faith'

This dog was born on Christmas Eve in the year 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. His mother did not want him as she could not continue to protect the young dog indefinitely.

His first owner also did not think that he could survive. Therefore, he was thinking of ' putting him to sleep ', but was scared that killing an innocently pitiful helpless little creature would leave a scar of guilt on his mind.
By this time, his present owner, Jude Stringfellow, met him and wanted to take care of him.
She is determined to teach and train this dog to walk by himself. Therefore she named him ' Faith ' .

In the beginning, she put Faith on a surfing board to let him feel the movements. Later she used peanut butter on
a spoon as a lure and reward for him to stand up and jump around. Even the other dog at home also helped to
encourage him to walk. Amazingly, only after 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 now can walk like a human being.

Faith loves to walk around now. No matter where he goes, he just attracts all the people around him.
He is now becoming famous on the international scene. He has appeared on various newspapers and TV shows.
There is even one 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 ' .

In life there are always undesirable things. Perhaps one will feel better if we could change the point of view of others.

I hope that this message brings you fresh ways of thinking and that each of us may appreciate and be thankful for every beautiful day that comes along.

Definition: Faith is the unrelenting demonstration of the Strength in Life!!

"Let's live faith"

....If you have faith, please pass it on
