Walking Point
Walking Point is a tale of love, loss, and victory; a WWII drama that centers around a young marine Private John Markle, and his donated canine, the heroic Duke. Private Markle falls in love with a beautiful Dogs for Defense volunteer trainer named Emily. He and Duke are quickly shipped off to Guam to help liberate the island from the Japanese Empire just as their love is blossoming. His goal is to make it back to her and to bring Duke back safely to the patriotic family that donated him.

We have received a tremendous amount of support throughout our  journey of making Walking Point.  It is a passion project for so many and we are extremely humbled and grateful to have come this far.  

When can you see Walking Point on the big screen?  With your help over the next 30 days we can complete the project for a summer release and bless many others in the process. We hope you will join us and here's how!

One of the main goals of creating this short film is to have an opportunity to give back to the Military Working Dog community in a charitable and impactful way.   We are extremely proud to partner with ProjectK9Hero   and MWDTSA   during our final crowdfunding campaign.

*All contributions will benefit these 2 wonderful organizations with 10%  being donated directly to them no matter the level of giving. 

*As a special thank you from our team,  when you donate a minimum of $50 you will not only receive a copy of "K9 Flash Becomes a Hero" and a MWDTSA patch or sticker, but we'll throw in an autographed copy of the Walking Point novel with our NEW book cover!

*For contributions of $100 or more you will receive a Walking Point T-shirt as well!

*Already own the book?  We have a solution!  You can  choose to "donate" your copy and it will get sent to a deployed K9 Team!

Your contributions will help bring to the silver screen the noble actions of the WWII military working dogs, our soldiers, and the undying patriotism of those families that donated their beloved canine companions to the Armed Forces.   This is a film that doesn't shy away from faith, family, or patriotism.  In fact, it focuses on these core values and our hope is that these values shine through for the world to see.

During the liberation of Guam, 25 military working dogs died in combat.  Their bodies were buried on the island in a small cemetery.  These dogs saved many lives and helped free the island of Guam and the Chamorro natives from the clutches of the Japanese Empire.

The acclaimed sculptor, Susan Bahary (who also wrote the foreword for the Walking Point novel) commissioned the first Military Working Dog Memorial in honor of these heroic canines.  Her masterpiece still remains on the island today. 

After Susan read the first four manuscript chapters she remarked, "I read the manuscript today and loved it. It made me cry a few times already! I appreciated its sensitivity and way of teaching a bit of this important history. A story like this brings back some of the treasured ideals of our country and our patriotism. It brings to mind life's simple pleasures and the hard work of everyday people who we can all thank for our freedom and the country we enjoy today."

Your contributions will help younger generations gain a better appreciation of our past history.
