Faith

Hope this inspire your day & life.

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 that he could survive.

Therefore, he was thinking of putting him to sleep..


At this 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.

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 in various newspapers and TV shows.


There is even one book entitled 'With a little faith' being published about him.


His present owner Jude Stringfellow has given up her teaching job

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 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.

Amazing. if only everybody knows how to appreciate all living things around us,,and if only everybody has a little faith , just like Faith.

mo nangis sa baca. kdg2 geram tingu urang yg piara binatang bnyk2 ni tau,, tpi nda pndai jaga..kn.
Faith is so lucky, and so does Jude.

moral lesson: sayangi lah benda2 hidup di sekeliling kita,, tak kira apa jenis binatang ka haiwan ka,,(cewah)
