(Sorry for the quality of the photos…the light was bad and they were taken with my phone)
This is not going to become a doggie-blog where I post cutesy photos of Max dressed up in cutesy outfits or cutesy photos of him doing something cutesy with cutesy bad grammar superimposed (AH SNIFFS OTHER DOGZ BUTTZ!) or anything else cutesy. But, he is the newest thing in our lives and I thought that I would share his arrival and solicit feedback (more on this at the bottom).
Max is a 5 year-old Boxer mix we adopted from A Forever Home. Like many of their animals he has a history of abuse. However, he is a mellow, well-behaved, gentle fellow and we are enjoying having him around. Most importantly, we got him already house-broken, crate-trained, fixed, and vaccinated.
“Max” is the name he came to us with and while there is nothing wrong with that name, Christine’s sister-in-law already has a dog named Max and we are considering changing his name after he gets settled and used to his new home and family. So I put it to you: should we keep his name or change it? And if we change it, what would you suggest we change it to?
