Maxine The Wonder Pup


My husband and I went on an unexpected trip last Wednesday to Prescott Arizona to check out a litter of boxer puppies we'd seen an ad for.  We've been thinking about adding a new family member for a little while now and came home with "Maxine The Wonder Pup".


We named her Maxine The Wonder Pup because we had quite an adventure acquiring her.  Living in Arizona you don't normally expect to get caught in a snowstorm but that's what happened the day we went to meet her.  

The weather was cloudy when we left our house in Parker that morning and we came across some drizzling rain but nothing major.  We arrived in Congress at the bottom of the mountain and it was raining, by the time we reached Yarnell it was snowing and as we kept driving we really wondered if we were going to make it into Prescott.  

In our area of the country we don't use snow tires or chains so we were totally unprepared!  After picking up the puppy we went home through Phoenix instead of trying to make it back down the mountain.  Our kids were in Wickenburg staying with Grandma and Grandpa, it was fun to walk in at Grandma's with a pup in my arms and surprise them.  They were so excited!


Maxine is 6 weeks old, the 9th boxer dog we've owned in 30 years.  We haven't had a dog now for about 5 years and we're looking forward to watching her grow up and getting to know her.

I'm sure there will be more pictures of her as she grows bigger and bigger.  Have a blessed day!

Cute puppy, I am sure you will have a lot of fun with her. We got caught in the same storm on our way home from Laughlin to Tucson. Traffic was pretty backed up on I-40 as it was closed due to weather. Took us 2 hours to get through Kingman Yikes!

Adorable puppy. I so want a boxer, they have been great doggies for my aunts and I believe they would be great for my 3 young kiddos. Kids and puppies just go together. Now, just to get the hubby on board. Enjoy and glad you and your family made it home safely.
