  1. we loved this special! thank you so much for sharing yours and jerry’s with the world.
    I am so sorry about jerry. I have not been in the loop the past bunch of months, and did not know that he had passed. my carver is not doing well right now, and your story gave me a chance to have a good cry that i have been needing.

    with appreciation
    louise & carver

    • It’s great to hear from you Louise, but we’re sorry to hear good ol’ three legged Carver is slowing down. Just try to keep in mind all this time you’ve had with him, and never forget … every day is a great day. Jerry taught us that. Please feel free to drop by the Tripawd Discussion Forums sometime to share Carver’s story or find advice, care tips, and support from others who understand what you’re going through.

    • Louise, that’s OK, we understand what it’s like to be in the middle of coping with our fur kids’ cancer. Thank you for watching and commenting.

      I know about Carver, I’ve been following his blog, I’m so sorry to hear about his health. You are in my thoughts and I wish you all the strength and love in the world. Many hugs to you and Carver.

  2. Just finished watching the show it was really good. We have a cat that adopted us last summer. Someone must have left it or could not find it when they were leaving. We live in a resort area. My wife found it out in her flower bed. It was in pretty bad condition. It is part of the family now. We take it camping with us and have even got it used to being on a leash like in the show.

    We really enjoyed watching the show and seeing some of your life on the road with Jerry.

    The webcam is a picture of our driveway. I spent about an hour in the evening clearing it with the trusty Honda snow blower.

    Have a good evening.

  3. I am ready for the show. It is on at 8 tonight on the PBS station out of Sacramento. We are getting a big snow storm today in the Sierras. So most of the day will be spent moving snow. I put up a webcam if you want to take a look. You might get luck and see me moving snow with the Honda snow blower.

    • Holy holy Henry! Is that your driveway? Brrrrrrrr!!!!! It’s beautiful though.

      Thanks so much for watching tonight! I hope it’s a nice break from the snow moving.
