    I’m speechless i had the same experience with my Joe. I quit everything for a year to take care of him until his last moment. It’s been almost to years since he passed away I still have no clue why should i wake up for. He’s not here now. I just don’t know what to say for now.My heart is broken.

    Animals are OUR healers. They enrich our lives IF WE LISTEN. They know when they are LOVED. Great dog and great people. They will NEVER regret the time they spent with him.

    What a great story.

    I was kindo expecting a (scientific) investigation into why people love cats and dogs. But this short is beautiful :’)

    @saibabathakur I have never understood why women love cats. Cats are independent, they don’t listen, they don’t come in when you call, they like to stay out all night, and when they’re home they like to be left alone and sleep. In other words, every quality that women hate in a man, they love in a cat

    If everybody had a four-legged friend in their home, there would be peace until the end of times.

    @estpst We helped release Jerry from his broken body in October, 2008. We enjoyed nearly two years on the road together, with Jerry loving life on three legs. Read the whole story at his TRIPAWDS website. Thanks for asking.

  9. estpst — 28th July 2011 @ 8:20 pm

    anyone know if Jerry is still alive?

    A zillion Hugs to Jerry, Rene and Jim for helping Nature share your story with the world. I luv you guys for being the best pawrents a dog could ever have. What a pure soul Jerry had and i am still crying at this story that has made a huge impact within me. I wonder if the producer of “why We Love Cats and Dogs” has ever seen the movie “Best of Show”? the 2 shows are in some ways similar, esp, with the interviews of so many people talking about their pets-Loved that!

    I totally understand these people. I tease my husband that the love of my life isn’t him, but our sweet girl Winter who we lost to cancer 3 years ago. Dogs never judge, they are always happy to see you. they comfort you when sad and make you laugh almost every day. My Winter was a German shepherd also, and I miss her every day.

    I understand what they mean. I’d do the same. I actually didnt go to college right after high school to be with my old cat. I’ve had her since I was six and I’m not leaving her for anything. She’s 15 but she has bowel issues and she’s lost a dangerous amount of weight. I owe my life to her, and school can wait because I’ll never leave her side.

    Go dog, Go!

  14. NELA1952 — 28th July 2011 @ 11:05 pm

    I love this story. how is Jerry doing? I have a three legged cat, to save his life. He’s still happy after almost 3 years!

  15. capnquack — 28th July 2011 @ 11:57 pm

    My mom would have put that dog down at the first sign of trouble. To know that he could have lived 14 more months without decline is just something wonderful. I know I’ll be taking my own babies to the vet and doing what is needed for them instead of just saying “sickness = death”. Just so sad that so many people just put down their animals when things get inconvenient.

    Love is so powerful, Pets are the greatest gifts besides children.

  17. Treemeadow — 29th July 2011 @ 12:56 am

    This is like the difference between me and my parents. I know they love animals, but for them- cancer or other ailments are a death sentence, and pets are like a hindrance to trips.

    They see pets as animals you live with, that are great, but thats it. You don’t spend more on them then you paid for.

    But to me- *god I’m crying* They’re life and death, man. Their everything the universe has to offer.

    Their hearts and souls are connected to mine, and I’d go anywhere for them.

    Best friend

    It’s not how far you go for a dog ,but how far do you go for LOVE.

  19. EdnaAtNutro — 29th July 2011 @ 2:35 am

    Hi, this is Edna with Nutro/Greenies.
    I just wanted to say that Jerry has got some awesome ‘pawrents’! Thanks for sharing such a wonderful story!

  20. paultaki — 29th July 2011 @ 2:51 am

    This is super cute!! Check out my videos of our crazy cat attacking our dog!!! FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT!

  21. PrincessJuJuBear — 29th July 2011 @ 3:51 am

    Awesome story. The cancer was a blessing in disguise as you two rediscovered what is really important in life through Jerry.

  22. redneckracehorse01 — 29th July 2011 @ 3:58 am

    We miss you Jerry

  23. cyrix01 — 29th July 2011 @ 4:04 am

    Where are the cats, man? They didn’t show any cats.

  24. boo1312 — 29th July 2011 @ 4:24 am

    Ohhh…Poor Jerry. I am just so happy that he has a family who loves him that much.

  25. katkoota — 29th July 2011 @ 5:16 am
