In Memory of
Ch. Santeric's Campaign Promise

 Promise
b. Jan. 13, 1999-2012

 

Look not where I was, for I am not there
My spirit is free, I am everywhere

In the air that you breathe, in the sounds that you hear
Donít cry for me Mom, my spirit is near

Iíll watch for you, from the other side
Iíll be the one running, new friends by my side

Smile at my memory, remember in your heart
This isnít the end, itís a brand new start

 

Promise was our very first Wire and we waited two long years before she came to us. We were very grateful to Ric and Nicole Chashoudian (Santeric) for trusting us with her. I spoiled her terribly but she did finish her championship in spite of that. Promise's biggest win and first major, came from the  6 - 9 month puppy class at the Montgomery County National Specialty show, (pictured above). Once Promise was retired from the show ring, she presented us with two beautiful litters of puppies. Her 2002 litter gave us our Ch.Santeric's Into The Woods who finished his championship in 2003.  Her next litter, born June 24th, 2003, consisted of eight lovely puppies, including AfterAll's Macomb Co. Mischief.

Promise slept on our bed and went everywhere I went. She flew with us to Dalmatian National shows all over the country! Although I never even considered giving her up, fate intervened the day she met Barbara and Bob Arbizzani. Letting her go was one of the hardest things I ever had to do but it was the right thing to do. Promise became their beloved companion and had the life I could never give her in our multiple dog household.  Her new family was devoted to her and Promise was much loved and happy every day she was with them.  Promise was eventually joined by our Ch. Hiwire Mischief Managed and the two added much joy to the Arbizzanis household. There was never a doubt, however, that Promise was in charge! 

When she an old injury got worse, Barbara took Promise to specialists and therapy.  She was pampered and adored until the day they let her go and ended her pain.....an act of supreme unselfishness for which I will always be grateful.
