Who is Jerry?

Running on three legs to the Vickers Ranch PondHi, I am Jerry G. Dawg, and in 2006, when I was eight years old, I was diagnosed with terminal bone cancer. Doctors amputated my leg in order to give me more quality time. My pawrents, Jim and René, were emotionally devastated. They didn’t know anything about canine cancer, amputation surgery or tripod dogs, so they started blogging and making movies about my life as a way to cope.

Doctors only gave me four months to live. But I didn’t care, because time means nothing to us dogs. Living for the moment is all that matters, so I decided to show my people how to really live!

Boondocking in the Carson National Forest, and loving it!In June, 2007, we hit the road to travel North America in our RV. Mom and Dad and drove me 30,000 miles, inspiring people from California to Maine to Florida, by showing them how awesome three legged dogs can be. Together, we spread the word that It’s better to hop on three legs than limp on four! Our story was even featured on this episode of Nature on PBS.

My pawrents and I had an incredible ride together, until October 3, 2008, when I earned my angel wings under beautiful Montana skies — almost two years past my diagnosis. Although I no longer hop on this earth, my spirit lives on forever through this website and discussion forums for three legged dogs and their pawrents.

Now, you can help carry on the inspawrational legacy of courageous Tripawds past and present, by sharing the amazing story of your own three legged hero. Sign up for your own blog and get started today!
