Ocean Hermit – sailing, solitude and stories

My plans to retrace Captain Cook's unfinished voyage have been postponed a year while I work on the next Marine Diesel Basics book and get my new boat SV Oceandrifter ready for sea.

* What FAITH can do – the amazing story of a two-legged dog.


She named him Faith

This dog was born on Christmas Eve in the year 2002. He was born with 2 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
