2 Legged Miracle

One of my lovely customers Valerie, forwarded this amazing story to me, so here it goes....

This dog was born on Christmas Eve in the year 2002. He was born with 2 legs. He of course could not walk when he was born. His first owner didn't 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. Amazingly, only after 6 months,  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's owner is determined to teach the world that "even without a perfect body, one can have a perfect soul." In life there are always undesirable things, so in order to feel better sometimes you just need to look at life from another direction.

I hope all of you find the wonder in your day today.
