When a dog loses a leg, it feels like your whole world falls apart. And for us humans, it does. For a little while anyways. But as today's spotlight on Tripawd Tuesday, Jerry's Joyful Journey shows us, life can be just as amazing on three, if not more.

Be More Dog with Jerry. Today, and Always!


Today is October 3. It's the anniversary of when our heart and soul dog became eternal. Our fearless founder of the Tripawds Community got his wings under the big Montana skies. It happened way back in 2008, but it feels like yesterday in so many ways.


Life was never the same again for us, or for the many three-legged dogs and cats whose people have found their way to this special corner of the interwebs. We are so grateful to have had this incredible dog in our life for 10 beautiful years.


Oh Jerry! Thank you for teaching us how to Be More Dog. Your loving soul continues to shine on the world, making a difference everywhere.

Jerry’s Life Lessons

Every day is a great day. Live each day as if it were your last, because it very well may be.

Don’t let adversity slow you down. Enjoy those things you can do, right now.

Take time to smell the roses. Observe the world around you, you never know what you might miss.

Go and Do. Get up, get out and seek adventures.

Simply be. No matter what’s going on, where you are, be happy within.

Never give up. Do everything within your power to reach your highest aspirations.

A joyful journey for of love and fun indeed!  These pictures and the video attest to that so beautifully. 

We thank Jerry's hoomans for sharing him with us.  The lessons learned still continue non stop for Tripawds everywhere.  

The l9ves saved....yes, the countless lives saved....because Jerry taught  us all life on three can be pure  bliss.   Life does not end with amputation,  instead it  becomes so much richer in so many ways.  The days on the calendar  don't  matter, but making the most of each moment is all that does really matter.

With love and appreciation to you Jerry.....and to Jim amd Rene who carry on your legacy of hope and inspiration.  We know you are so proud 

♥️💖♥️💖♥️💖

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

It is no small thing to take such a difficult experience with a loved one (that will never really seem so long ago) and let that experience become a place like this. Thank you to you all for sharing Jerry with us. sp_hearticon2

His story continued today in a small way at our oncology visit. We were in the waiting area for June’s latest chemo treatment today (5 of 6) and met another tripawd as we were there. We shared Tripawds.com with the puppo and her hoomans. They were so excited and immediately hopped on their phones and checked out the site. I saw one mouth the words “Chief Fun Officer” to the other with an appreciative smile. As we left they said they looked forward to getting back online tonight and reading more.
