Getting a new puppy tonight! I think we are crazy!

We are going to get a boxer puppy tonight! I can't believe we are, but I guess we need a new 'baby" in the house! It has been about 12 years that we have gotten a new pet, she will be coming to live with our 12 year old shitzu/schnauzer mix, any and all suggestions are welcome!

Our names are Lucy and Roxy, but I think we need to wait to see her until we make up our mind!

  • Ohhhhhh your little one will be excited! I love the name Lucy. We sadly can't have a dog. Our cat is gigantic and hates dogs. He eats them alive.

  • Congrats!! I lf I got a girl dog I would name her Lola. I wanted to name our Daughter that & DH nixed it. If I got a boy dog I'd name him Mel after the dog in Jacks Big Music Show. I know...I have no life to know what Jack's dogs name is right? LOL! :) Enjoy your new baby & post pics!!!

  • Hope you are crate training, unless it is an outside dog.

  • Oh, and I vote for the name Lucy.

  • Congrats! I sooo don't envy you the work, but a young dog will keep an older dog active and lively. Have fun with the pup.
