Faith is a Natural Dog

Hey Everyone! Faith is doing better - she wanted me to let you know that. She celebrated her 11th birthday with soldiers at the airport, and we met and hugged as many as we could. She's been very excited lately to meet more soliders and patients at the Hanger Prosthetics and Orthotics Clinic in Oklahoma City, where she is being fitted for her new "harness" type prosthesis.  It is a one-of-a-kind, and has never been created in the past. Our good friend Chris L. is to thank! She has been one of Faith's biggest fans and supporters.  MORE news as it comes! I just wanted to you know that Faith is doing very well. She's older of course, but she's still got that big smile of hers, and she's willing to share it with everyone she meets. Thank you for continuing to love her and support her. It really means so much to our family to know she is truly loved by so many.

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

Time to Make It Stop: the How of Now

Exhausted by the HoLiDaZe?

For two years, Jim George barely slept while he stayed up late into the night drawing over 450 Draw the Dog cartoons inspired by your dogs.

To thank Jim, please buy a copy of his new book

(Description by Jim's Draw the Dog partner Bruce)

Time to Make It STOP is one of the most magical books you have ever seen. It is a self-help book that is jam-packed with Jim’s drawings. In Jim’s joyful style, he shows you how to dissolve your stress and replace it with happiness.

In truth, mere words can’t describe this book. It’s more like a video than a book. Words dissolve into pictures, pictures fade and reappear, and along with these changes your stress disappears.

But the main reason to buy this book isn’t because it will help you. The best reason to buy this book is to say thanks to a man who is the most powerful force for good you may ever run across. Jim is obsessed with helping others, and many times has sacrificed his time and income to do so. Without any compensation back to him, Jim has allowed countless dog rescue organizations to use his drawings. Even as I type this, rescues are selling Jim’s art online and in their fundraisers; some are using his drawings in their logos.

See Faith on Draw the Dog!

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.  

A New Year for Faith: encore online

encore online Wilmington Delaware

encore online magazine in Wilmington, Delaware published an article about Faith, suggesting that she can be an inspiration as we ponder our past year and goals for the New Year:

Faith the Dog inspires many to persevere, find hope


The fact of the matter is, all one needs in the new year is a little Faith.

The article includes a review of the book Faith Alone. Despite several minor factual errors in the article, the meaning and message of hope and love shines true.

Faith's Summer Plans

We're hoping that Faith and Laura will be able to film a television show for the Japanese TV production company Zippy.  We're told it will be a variety show, but Faith will be visiting elderly Japanese patients in either a hospital or a nursing home,  Faith loves working with and visiting elderly people so this should be a very good experience for her.  Because I am going to be working full time Laura will be talking on camera and handling Faith as she is filmed.  Infact, Laura has been doing most of the shows with Faith this Spring and will continue to work with her.

Thanks so much for following Faith.  As she goes on other trips you can see her progress at 

The book I am writing about Faith is in the hands of a great publisher in NYC.  We hope to announce their name to you soon.  When the book is released Faith, Laura, Caity, and I will go to at least 6 maybe more military bases and do book signings.  That should be closer to December, but the announcement of the publishers name is coming soon!  Look forward to a cartoon version of Faith's life in the future too - - she's just a busy girl.


Faith the Dog Puppy Plush Toy


The REALLY exciting news right now is the Puppy Faith plush toy that is out and available at for $14.99 plus shipping and handling.


You'll have to write to Cheryl or Norma at Cher Marketing for the total cost, but I think I paid $5.00 or so for one to be mailed to me, for a total of about $20. International rates are higher of course. 


It's very cute, very cuddly, and way too sweet to pass up. I'm thinking everyone I know will be getting one for their birthday, Christmas or anniversary!!  She's adorable.  



"Faith Walks"

Seattle author Rudy Yuly and I have come up with the actual title of the definitive book we're writing together about Faith. It will be titled "Faith Walks". We've given the proposal to our agent Ken Atchity and are now just waiting to hear from the publishers.

The book will be out around this time next year, so look for updates every quarter or so to let you know who picked it up, and what to expect. We know that it will be about 190-220 pages. We know it will be told in Faith's point of view. We know it will be heartwarming, fun, crazy at times, and friendly so that everyone in the world can read it and enjoy it.  Faith loves everyone unconditionally - and the book will reflect that type of acceptance, and what we as humans can learn from her regarding the way we tolerate and accept others around us.  If there's one thing I've personally learned from Faith it is to let the world know you love them - - one smile at a time. 

 Faith's in her office under the bed now going over the proposal as it is - - of course making changes, but the facts will remain steadfast in the words of Rudy and I as we try our best to relate her stories to you soon.  Thanks for your love and support.  Oh, and of course there will be PICTURES!!  Anthony Tortoriello will be our official book photographer!  Of course!


Faith Alone makes a great present!
