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.

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.

Happy New Year! 2012 will be Faith's LAST working year. Book Her While You Can!

Happy 9th Birthday to Faith the Dog!! She turned 9 recently (Dec. 22) and has less than one year to work before she officially retires.  Faith will hopefully retire at the Ft. Lewis - McChord Joint AFB on her birthday next year. We're in the planning stage for the celebration.  For those of you who wish to send Faith a present she likes Starbucks! JUST KIDDING!!!  Please send your charible donations to either C.A.R.E. or RAGOM, both have buttons at the top of the site with addresses. Please say you are sending it in Faith's name!!

UNTIL SHE RETIRES:  Faith will be available for shows and events on a very limited basis.  For any and all information about dates and fees please contact me directly.

TEXT me (don't call)   317-410-3073   and let me know you are interested. 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 deserves the rest and relaxtion - - but so far she's the first one out the door when she sees my suitcase! 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!

Please be one of the first 5000 friends - - and remember to go to her e-mail list and put your name on the list to buy her book when it comes out.

WNDY-TV New Show "Pet Pals TV"

 Hey Everyone!  Faith and I are starting a brand new gig. I've been asked to be the new Account Executive (sales of advertising time) for the new Pet Pals TV show here in Indianapolis. YEA.  The job is one of those jobs you do because you love animals and want to be a part of a new and innovative television show that will have its own wings and take off in time.  Think about Animal Planet and how it got its footing.  Pet Pals TV is a local show to the Indianapolis area now, but we'll be sure and upload it online so the world can see it too.  Each episode will be full of informational, educational, fun facts and great stories about pets and animals that make a difference in our lives.  Faith and I were interviewed last week for the show by Host Patty Spitler. 

The show will air Saturday October 23, 2010 at 10:30 a.m. EST on Indianapolis station WNDY-23. I know Patty won't waste anytime uploading it so the rest of you can see it too. I'll have a link on this site, and my Facebook site too.

If you don't already have a Pet Pal TV account you can get on at  and be sure to show us YOUR pet's photos, tell us your stories, and give us all the poop on your pet!  If you happen to be one of those innovative types and want to buy a banner or time slot for the show just give me a call.  Say you read about it on my site and I'll give you a 10% discount!!  Can't beat that!!

"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!


Happy Birthday Faith! Soldier Style!

HAPPY 7th BIRTHDAY to Faith the Dog! Faith's REAL birthday is unknown but we gave her the date of December 22 to celebrate. We know she was born within a few days of that date and she is truly a "Christmas Miracle." This year Faith hopes to be celebrating her birthday for several days beginning this Friday through Sunday in Seattle, WA where she will be with more than 5000 soldiers in and out of uniform at two bases: McChord Air Force Base and Ft. Lewis Army Base just outside of Seattle/Tacoma.  WOW -- lots of hugs, lots of kissing. Then Faith hopes to make it to Carswell Joint Reserve Base the following weekend!  Nothing like camo colored icing on a big fat cake to make everyone happy!  Thanks to Pat McGhee at Ft. Lewis for hosting us, and for all the personnel you send to us to pick us up, carry us around, put us up and love us constantly. This is the best part about our Armed Forces - - they love us!  Thank a soldier when you see one, and pray for them all.
