  69. 69. A short story about FAITH
  70. 70. 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 need to be amputated. He of course could not walk when he was born.
  71. 71. His first owner also did not think that he can survive. Therefore, he was thinking of 'putting him to sleep'. 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'.
  72. 72. In the beginning, she put Faith on a surfing board to let him feel the movements. After further training in the snow, he now can walk like a human being.
  73. 73. To achieve anything in life we need CONFIDENCE and DETERMINATION like FAITH.
  74. 74. THANK YOU
