Promise Me

Promise today

Elizabeth—

… Hard to believe we are coming up on nine years this year come Mother’s Day! I can’t tell you how much Promise means to me. I thank God that you do what you do. Here is a current picture of Promise with her pack sibling, Boomer, adopted a couple of years ago. You can see the old picture of her in my original email(see below).

People still stop me on the street to pet her and they are amazed she is now going on 11 because she looks and acts like a puppy. Her coat is soft and glossy and she is a very good little girl for the most part. She has a love of life that is contagious; makes me want to get up in the morning and greet the day and I can’t help but smile when I watch her prance on our walks.

She has really helped with Boomer. He was so anxiety ridden when we got him that he was on sedation medication to help him deal with wind and rain and thunder and gun fire and almost you name it. He didn’t wag his tail for months and he was overweight and had stress alopecia and hot spots, so he was completely shaved down. He has lost 30 lbs and has been drug free for a year now. He now looks like a normal golden and even wags his tail when we go for walks. He defers to Promise in all things and I can see him watching her for clues on how to respond.

Thank you. Love to you and yours.

  2. Is this the same Promise that Cassie and I brought up to Livermore? She is an amazing dog.
