Jerry waits patiently while his people check out Signal Mountain

Looking back at our nearly two years on the road together, I recall my people often listening to their favorite KHSU program online. Once in a while they would call Mad Dr. Matt, the host of Alternative Therapy, with updates about our location or my condition. Now, one year after my passing, Jim has had a little fun with iMovie to create this tribute video featuring yours truly, the voice of Matty Dread and inspawrational music from Kelly's Lot

NOTE: No crying allowed! Unless they are tears of joy for all the fond memories we shared together as a pack.

Special thanks to the Mad Doctor for his special Jerry tribute show (#379 – 10/11/08) and frequent shout-outs! And many more to Frankie and his Rockin' people for use of this acoustic version of Today from their Kelly's Lot album Trio.

I believe the song says it all, and Barney helps us show at the end of the video … that it is all about the present.

What a beautiful video for a beautiful dog.  It really looks like he had a very full and happy life and that makes me smile.  I am glad that he has been such an inspiration for us and especially for you to start this community.  Having three legs didn't hold him back at all!  And I don't think I've seen a dog enjoy sticks more lol.

Sticks? Did someone say "sticks"?! Yeah I LOVED sticks. My pal Wyatt over here is just discovering the joys of chewing on woody sticks. I'm hoping that he'll learn to love them as much as I did.

Paws up to my tripawd family here. We love you guys. xoxo
