Our fearless founder was born on October 1, 1998 and earned his angel wings on October 3, 2008. Today is his Angelversary. His earthly presence is deeply missed, but his legacy lives on and his lessons are more relevant than ever.
Jerry’s Angelversary Lesson
This upside down year has been a doozy. If you find yourself wishing it was over, just know that you’re not alone. We get it. We feel that way too sometimes. A lot, really! “Now, where’s that reset button?” we keep wondering.
Ah, if only we could go back to the days when Jerry was loving life on three in his hometown of Eureka, California! Here are some fun clips before and after he became a Tripawd. These were taken before we hit the road to travel with Jerry.
It’s easy to slide into the trap of wishing for tomorrow, but that’s no way to live today. After all, the Here and Now is the only thing that’s guaranteed and tomorrow may never come. So why waste time spinning your wheels on something so futile? Animals don’t hope the day away, and neither should we if we want to Be More Dog.
So when you find yourself hoping that time will speed up and we can get on with life as we once knew it. please allow one of Jerry’s most important life lessons to guide you.
Accept life for what it is, and people for who they are. Be tolerant and determined to live a happy life. Embrace the day without expectations and give thanks for the chance to be part of it. This was how Jerry lived; this is his legacy.
On Jerry’s angelversary and celebration of life, we honor all that he taught us. Be More Dog! Be More Cat! And may the wisdom of our beloved leader and your own Tripawd hero brighten your days and show you the way to happier tomorrows.
Long live Jerry’s legacy! Long live the legacy of all our Tripawd Heroes!
