Jerry is the talk of the nation

Well, dad has been up to his silly antics again – trying to spread the word about our amazing time on the road together. And apparently it worked!

If anyone was listening to Talk of the Nation on Thanksgiving, they might have heard this email that Jim sent in read alound on the air …


The question posed to NPR listeners was Who Is Missing At Your Thanksgiving Table? Well, around the Tripawds mobile headquarters, that would be me of course. So he decided to share some of the lessons I taught him and René with the NPR audience. One of which was particularly appropriate for Thanksgiving day – that there is always reason to give thanks, every day, no matter what life throws your way.

The whole program can be heard in NPR’s Talk of the Nation archives for November 26, 2009. Which you may need to do if the copyright police disable audio for the video above. But you might also want to check out the discussion with cognitive scientist Alexandra Horowitz about what goes on “Inside Of A Dog”.

With that said, I’d like to give a great big Thank You! to the entire Tripawds community for continuing to spread hope and share support and advice every day. Without you, this website would not be the helpful resource it has become. A prime example of the love we all share here is the popularity of this Happy Thanksgiving topic started by jakesmom.

Special thanks are also due to Codie Rae for creating the cool Hoppy Thanksgiving poster, and for Lalla’s lovely thankful poster from last year.

Sharing is Caring!

  1. Thank you! I’m still taking it slowly so I don’t become so overwhelmed like I did before. It really is good to be back.

  2. We hope you all had a very warm and wonderful Thanksgiving. Blazer had so much fun playing with the other dogs at a friend’s house & he got to enjoy plenty of white meat turkey! My gracious friend made sure I even had turkey to bring home so my kitty, Kimber, could enjoy a little feast!

    Your pals,
    Vicki, Blazer & Kimber
