EDITOR'S REVIEW
: Promise has been one of Barkwire's top dogs for over a year. With looks that make most humans drool, she has no trouble stealing hearts and making waves. But don't think that Promise is all looks and no substance. This angelic beauty has a big heart and a strong love of children, which has made her a favorite of young girls everywhere. Her 2007 BarkWire exclusive pictorial still remains the most popular page on our site.

Promising Dreams
Posted by KHunter [Read other reviews by KHunter]

Many a dog have I encountered in my travels through life, but none has struck so profound a blow as this angelic dame. I speak not of a blow of the physical nature, but one of staggering spiritual and emotional resonance. Promise has run away with my heart, for never in all the annals of canine wonder has there been so grand a proclamation as this majestic goddess.

So intense is my awe and admiration for Promise that I have found her gentle paws stampeding through my dreams. Last night, as I drifted to slumber, I was joined by her. Oh! How we gaily trampled through the clouds, and sauntered about green grassy hills! Her beauty lifted my spirit to the heavens like a Valkyrie of lore.

But alas, this heaven was not meant to last. I awoke from my slumber far too soon! Nonetheless, the day was far brighter thanks to a fantastic night with Promise. With any luck and a nod from Lady Destiny, perhaps Promise and I will enjoy more time together in the land of slumber.


Possibly pregnant?

I have noticed Promise has put on a little bit of weight. Given the kind of diet and exercise regimen a dog of this quality keeps, I can only conclude that Promise is pregnant. This bothers me somewhat, because Chattanooga's owners have been out of state for some time taking care of a family situation. Chattanooga is with them, and obviously in no position to impregnate Promise. I can only assume Promise is carrying the puppies of another dog. I can only hope the father is up to snuff. If he is not a good dog, then those puppies are in for a life of shame. I can only hope Promise chose an appropriate mate. If so, I plan to make an offer on at least one of her offspring.


ALSO HAD DREAM ON FEBRUARY 18, 2008

ALSO HAD DREAM ABOUT PROMISE. ACCOUNT IS AS FOLLOWS. ALL TIMES ARE ESTIMATED DUE TO HALLUCINATORY NATURE OF SLEEP.

3:27AM - IN CHILDHOOD HOME IN BOISE. MOM IS ALIVE AGAIN AND FIXING BREAKFAST. BACON AND EGGS.

3:28AM - UNCLE LEVI APPEARS. SAYS LEG IS CAUGHT UNDER TRACTOR TIRE OUT IN THE FIELD.

3:33AM - UNCLE LEVI IS POINTING TO HIS LEG CAUGHT UNDER THE TRACTOR. HE STILL HAS BOTH HIS LEGS ATTACHED BUT THAT DOES NOT SEEM TO MATTER SINCE HE ALSO HAS A LEG UNDER THE TRACTOR. HOW IS HE IN TWO PLACES AT ONCE?

3:34AM - SUDDENLY IN FRONT OF VENDING MACHINE. UNCLE LEVI IS INSIDE IN POSITION E3. THERE IS CORRECT CHANGE IN MY HAND.

3:35AM - MOM IS STANDING NEXT TO ME YELLING AT ME TO BUY UNCLE LEVI. CORRECT CHANGE IS SUDDENLY GONE FROM MY HAND.

3:36AM - LOOKING FOR CORRECT CHANGE IN THE BARN. PROMISE IS THERE. EXTEND RIGHT ARM TO PET HER HEAD. SOFTER THAN ANYTHING EVER FELT BEFORE.

3:37AM - PET HER A SECOND TIME. SHE SMILES.

3:37-3:48AM - CONTINUE PETTING PROMISE.

3:49AM - WAKE UP IN A COLD SWEAT.

SURE WISH IT WASN'T A DREAM.


NOT SO SPECIAL!

People have been obsessing over Promise for years. I remember practically every sheep on Dogcharts.com going nuts for her before that site went to crap (here's a hint if you plan to start a dog review site: keep your fascist Hilter-like policies to yourself). She even had a big following back 3-4 years ago on the Woofable forums. Hell, she might still, but I don't go there because I actually believe in freedom of speech and the right to have dissenting opinions.

Promise is a good looking dog. Maybe the sexiest, but there's a lot of other top quality female dogs out there with better personalities and less baggage. Does the name Windswept mean anything to you? She's ahead of Promise by miles. Verisimilitude, Saunter, Dance, Ambition, and Coronation are all top --BiGDOG-- picks. Of course, male or female, you can't beat Panzer. Best dog ever. 'Nuff said.

--BiGDOG-- JUST LAID SOME KNOWLEDGE OUT.

Is she the most beautiful dog in the world?

I think she is the most beautiful dog in the world. If I owned Promise, I would walk her every day, all around town making sure people saw me with her. I would spend my evenings grooming her and brushing her hair and making sure she always looked beautiful. I really want to kiss her.

If Promise were all mine, I would never miss my wife again.


WAS ASKED BY HER OWNER NOT TO COME NEAR HER

SAW PROMISE AT THE BUNYAN STREET POOCH-MART PET STORE. SHE WAS SO BEAUTIFUL I HAD TO HUG HER. I RAN UP AND WRAPPED MY ARMS AROUND HER AND THEN A BIG-HEADED LADY SCREAMED! "GET AWAY FROM MY DOG" SHE YELLED AND A TALL GENTLEMAN BEHIND THE COUNTER MOVED TOWARDS ME. I BACKED UP AND APOLOGIZED FOR NOT ASKING BUT EXPLAINED SHE WAS SO BEAUTIFUL I COULD NOT HELP MYSELF. SHE IS A VERY BEAUTIFUL DOG AND I WISH HER OWNER WOULD UNDERSTAND THAT OTHER PEOPLE WANT TO APPRECIATE HER JUST AS MUCH, IF NOT MORE. SHE LICKED MY HAND AND I WILL PROBABLY NOT WASH IT FOR SOMETIME.
