Starting how we mean to go on!

Starting how we mean to go on!

Lots of fruit at the ready for a healthier 2013 for us! Married happiness and contentment has resulted in an increase in clothes sizes!! A larger girth has been the ‘new black’ as it were! 🙂 Well, with middle age aches and pains accompanying this situation, we are grabbing it by both love handles and giving it a good talking to! Starting with copious amounts of mother nature’s snacks, rather than those made by chocolate companies that we love so much….. I will be trying new healthy recipes and letting you know how wonderful they may, or may not (!) be.
Wish us luck or join us on our journey and we can travel up the healthy path together!

A Little Faith …the story of a dog with no front legs.


This dog was born on Christmas Eve in the year 2002. He was born without front legs . 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. 

Even the other dog at home encouraged him to walk. 

Amazingly, only after 6 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. 

No 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 Stringfellow 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, so in order to feel better you 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. 

A small request: All you are asked to do is keep this story circulating.
