Faith was a Natural Dog

It is with a very heavy soul and grieving heart that I must inform the world, and all of Faith the Dog's friends, fans, family, and loved ones, that she has passed.

She is with Jesus now, and is forever ever evermore running on four perfectly formed and beautiful legs. She is, and will always be, a glorious and wonderful friend. She had such an amazing life.

When I have more time to give her a proper tribute I will do so. For now I ask that you continue to pray for us today. Thank you for your love and support.

Condolences and memories may be posted on Faith the Dog's Facebook or the Guest Book on this web site.

Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend - and I'll say it every day to celebrate the fallen heroes and the brave men and women who have served our great country. Faith is proud to be a part of the U.S. Army representing the greatest fighting force of our nation. Faith's E5 status was given to her in honorarium in 2006 and she has been accepted by every military member and family member ever since. She's the first one to greet any soldier in uniform at the airports and when we see them (you) on the streets! If you're out of uniform you may have to give her a hint that you're part of the team, but she'll be happy to love on you!  A big hug to you all, and prayers of praise for you.  The photo is from Christmas 2012.  This is Sgt. Reuben Stringfellow (currently serving Indiana National Guard) with Sgt. Faith.

Faith is a Natural Dog

Faith is a Natural Dog.

She is of course a natural dog, and by that I mean that she is normal in every single way - - with of course the exception that she is a one-of-a-kind miracle mutt who just happens to be world famous, and loved by everyone!  Faithy is almost 11 years old, and in doggie years that puts her in the same age bracket as many of the people who have not only retired, but who are beginning to think about their final plans and even their finals days. I'm not saying she's dying, she's of average health for a dog her age, but she's having difficulty with walking now, and it's harder for her to balance when she's standing to "do her business". 
UPDATE.....YEA...YEA...we are so happy to announce that Hanger Prosthetics and Orthotics in Oklahoma City (with the funding coming from a personal friend) is creating a new prosthetic harness for Faith. We're not sure if she'll take it, but we're going to work toward that goal. She's been scanned, and the clinic is designing the harness now. I'll post pictures when I can. She has gone to the clinic a couple of times; when she goes she meets great patients. Some of the patients she meets are soldiers. Not all of the soldiers are American soldiers. Faith has been so inspirational to so many across the world that they recognize her when they see her. One patient was a 12 year old boy from the UK.  He was so excited to meet Faith in person. He said his friends back in the UK won't believe it!  (We took pictures!) smiley

Dog Fancy September 2013

Faith is featured on page 33 of the September 2013 SPECIAL ISSUE of Dog Fancy. She's one of 5 Mutts who rose to fame. Get your copy on stands soon, and be sure and tell everyone that you LOVE FAITH!! Thanks Nikki Moustaki of Dog Fancy! Special thanks to Anthony Tortoriello who took the photos for the magazine back in 2008, but he was not given proper credit in the magazine. For this I am sad, we believe all photographers and artists deserve credit for their work.  Anthony's work can be found at 

Cetyl M and FAITH

Faith has been using a GREAT product by Response Products called "Advanced Cetyl M, Joint Action Formula"

I wanted to let you know how she's been doing on the product so I decided to test her, keep her on the product for a while, and then let you know - - she's awesome. I'm not sure if the product has slowed down or stopped any aging process in Faith, but it has allowed her to maintain the good and healthy life that she has been living. She's 9.5 years old now, so she could and probably should, be showing a bit of age in her joints, hips, and back just as any senior dog would - but so far we don't see any problems. I have to say I'm pretty sure the Cetyl M has been working its magic on her. 

The main ingredients are: cetyl myristoleate and a unique blend of esterified fatty acids. For more detailed information about Cetyl M, or how you can get some for your dog, cat, and even horses...write to:  and/or go to the website at: and see it for yourself.

I'm not just whistling Dixie....(it's a Southern thing) 

Help The Ohio Rottweiler Rescue Group

Ohio Rottwieler Rescue Group

My very good friend Gayla Frances Evans has a lot of dogs on her hands right now. She's rescuing rotty-pups, terriers, you name it, and she's out there saving it. She rescues cats too, and other animals, not just dogs.
She needs your help with donations for surgeries not only for spay and neutering but for those that have been abandoned, hurt, maimed, and/or injured. She's up to her elbows in vet bills and not really asking that many people for help.
Gayla's working hard with a group of volunteers who give their time and efforts like we all do - - but as we all know, it takes money too! The Ohio Rottweiler and Boston Terrier Rescue web site has an easy and secure PayPal donate button!
So please let others know. Rottweilers may be misunderstood sometimes, but they are some of the BEST military dogs in the world. They are loving house companions, great protectors, and they love you unconditionally.  If you can help just by forwarding her group's information to your e-mail contacts, on your social sites, or Twittering...please do.

Faith and I had the best time going to the Super Bowl Village and finding friends among the 65,000+ fans who were in the village milling around, representing their favorite teams and cities. You wouldn't believe how many people petted Faith and rubbed her head while she was lazily draped over my shoulders. She interrupted a group of kids getting their photo taken with the big XLVI sign...she met a few celebrities and kissed a lot of faces. She even stole a sandwich from a kid who never saw it coming.  She's that way!  She was happy to see the Giants win of course, but only because Eli Manning is Peyton's brother and here in Indy it's all about the COLTS so Faith wore her little jacket and wagged her tail proudly for the BLUE.  WISH-TV (CBS) interviewed us about our new book and Faith was able to sniff out a few goodies in the green room!!  She loved every minute of the fun...and so did I.

You can also e-mail me through the BOOKING page on this site.This is the most recent photo of Faith, as you can see she's a bit older and we feel that it is in her best interest to work just one more year on the road.

She knows we're flying somewhere, and that makes her smile.  If you have a special event coming up please contact me soon, we're booking and it's VERY limited at this point. Thank you so very very much - those of you who have brought out out. Thank you to the men and women of our great country and our allies, those who keep us safe. We not only salute we, we HUG YOU! 

Faith the Dog and Harry Potter

Faith was asked to be in the 4th movie of the Harry Potter series. I was thrilled of course, and couldn't get my mind wrapped around how we would do that since it was being filmed shortly and she was not ready to travel overseas. At the time she was not as travel-savvy as she is today and I didn't have a passport, and Faith wasn't given the overseas shots and quarantine by-pass papers, so it looked as if the idea was a bust.

Then another idea came up through the pike - - she could film here, and they could edit her in. (Have you seen the MAGIC those people do with special effects?) Anyway, time passed, the crew and production people didn't work out the details as needed, and poor Faith did not get to play the role of a lifetime:  She was going to be a little dog that was created when Cedric dropped his wand in the middle of the first challenge of the Goblet of Fire. The wand hit a stone and the incantation he called out was slightly altered.  FAITH was to be the alteration!  Faith would have been a wonderful addition to the film and though it was not that way in the book - she would have been the star for sure! Maybe that's why they didn't go forth with the idea, they were afraid she would steal the scene! (Just saying)

Faith went her way and the great cast and crew of the Harry Potter series went their way. Today her image was sent via satellite to the crew and cast when they were at the premiere having a rest. The cast loves Faith and I was personally told by Rupert's assistant that he truly would have loved to have met Faith. She was written about in his local paper in Hertfordshire, England, and his mum is also a big fan of my little yellow dog.  I am told.  

EFT Workshops / Emotional Freedom Technique Fun & Fur!

  Emotional Freedom Technique "The Karate Chop". This is a technique used with TAPPING or EFT work. I hope you'll join me, Jude Stringfellow, along with Faith the Dog sometimes, as we do EFT workshops around the country - - possibly the world. We're opening up our event horizons to include positive powerful workshops where I teach and train people to use their own inner spirit and being to tap into their personal strength and the strength of the universe to achieve greater goals than they may ever have imagined. Remember that FAITH is the substance of that which we can not is the essence of things hoped for.  Tapping (or EFT) allows you to literally cause a spring of clear and deliberate vibrations to flow from within your own being - - manifesting itself through positive power, energy, and new complete feelings of increasing confidence.  Faith and I invite you to bring us to your city to do a workshop with your church, school, conference, or group - - we've been known to do a "Bark in the Park" event where guests bring their dogs and we all sit around doing a tapping event for peace, health, fun, good feelings and more. I train new tappers and old alike. We have fun, and believe it or not tapping can and will change your life! You will never be able to live without the EFT tapping once you start the process - - it's THAT great. Seriously, it's wonderful. Of course, I do these events without Faith as well - - it's up to you. For more information about EFT and the Positive Power Workshops - - visit my new site: and let me show you how you can have more, feel better, and gain the confidence you want.  ( works for losing weight and attracting finances too!) Share the link with your friends - - Thank you for your love and caring support of my little girl FAITH. She as brought a new awareness and level of personal achievement to my life...let me bring it to you. It's in there! Tap it out!
