Learn to Live in the Now With Be More Dog – The Book

Be More Dog is the inspiring story of how one dog with terminal cancer led his people on a spiritual journey that turned their life around and opened their eyes to the importance of living in the Now.

When their heart and soul dog Jerry lost a leg to cancer, Jim Nelson and Rene Agredano sold their home, their business, and nearly everything they owned to enjoy their final days traveling together as a pack in a new RV. Given just months to live, Jerry led his people around the country for two years.

Be More Dog is more than a memoir about a three-legged dog on an epic road trip. It is a mantra to live by, and this book is the guide. This heartwarming tale is filled with deep meaning. Through his actions and attitude in the face of adversity, Jerry shows Jim and Rene how important it is to live in the now—to persevere when the going gets tough, to never give up, and that every day is a great day, no matter what life throws your way.
