A Celebration of Life on Jerry’s Birthday

Seven years ago today Tripawds Founder and Chief Fun Officer Jerry G. Dawg celebrated his tenth, and final birthday, just days before he left this earthly world.

Hoppy Birthday Jerry! (10/01/08)

Please don’t be sad. Instead, please join us in celebrating the life our three legged hero, spiritual leader, best friend, and inspiration for the Tripawds community.

Sing along with us in this video from Jerry’s ninth birthday…

That’s more like it! 🙂

Jerry lived every moment to the fullest. He always enjoyed opening his presents, he never liked seeing us sad or upset, and we all know how he felt about Barney.

Long may you run, dawg.

  1. Oh my God he is so cute. And funny! How positive and wonderful of you to celebrate his life like this. It’s bittersweet but from the pictures and video it’s so obvious he was loved and loved back. It’s a good lead for me to follow. Thank you so much for sharing.

  2. Happy Hippy Hoppy Birthday Jerry G. Dawg!! We share the same birthday so I feel extra special today, hoping that I can inspire others as you have. You da DAWG!! Just LOOK at this community, it never would have come into being without you and the love your pawrents had for you. Sally is right, who knows how many lives were saved, and will be saved, because of your story and this community. The only thing I am sad about is that I never got to meet you face to face Big Dawg. Long may you run, over the rainbow, you will ALWAYS be in our hearts,

  3. Happy Birthday Jerry. I sure hope you have met all the Tripawds that joined you at the Bridge to wait for us pawrents. If it weren’t for you we wouldn’t be here to celebrate you and the community you help build. Thank you from the bottom my heart

  4. Happy Birthday in heaven Jerry! I hope you are opening a zillion presents! And by the way, I felt the same way about
    Barney many times when my kids were growing up and it seemed like he was on TV 24/7 LOL!

  5. Yes, a celebration of a life that keeps on “living and giving” Your bright light of hope actually continues to magnify daily through the humans you chose to carry on your legacy. But you already knew that would happen when you picked them as your voice.

    The lives that have been saved, the gift of .more quality time for loving and spoiling that has been given…it all happened, and continues to happen, because of you Jerry G. Dawg!!! THANK YOU!! 🙂

    I know in yoir post you said not to be sad, so we’ll honor that. The sadness that’s hard ro shake is that you had to listen to your humans TRY and “sing” Happy Birthday! I’m sad you had to endure that! Clearly you did a magnificent job of taking out your frustration on Barney though!


    With a grateful heart,

    Sally and My Chunky Spiritual Being Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

  6. Hoppy Birthday Jerry! You share the same birth month as little miss Shelby Lynne! And I feel the same way about Barney … lol! 🙂 I am sure you and my sweet angel have met up and will celebrate BIG this month and here on earth, little Jasper Lily and I will celebrate in your honor for this amazing community you inspired! XO

  7. Happy Heavenly Birthday Jerry! You have left a legacy here on Earth through your wonderful humans that keeps you alive in all of us. I,personally, am so glad that you did what you did,and were who you were, so that I was able to meet your wonderful pawrents and found unflappable support during a trying time with My Barty. You are a Tripawd Hero in the truest sense of the word.

    We Love you Jerry!!

    Darcy, Angel Bart and the Amazing TOWANDA!!!
