One of the weirdest aspects of our family history – to me, at least – is that Max raised (bred?) boxers behind the bar at 30th and Girard. I guess it’s just weird because when I think of raising dogs, I imagine wide open spaces with lots of grass in the countryside, not the backyard of a corner row house in the middle of a city. But what do I know? I’m a cat person.
According to my mom, Max and Aunt Anne showed dogs at Westminster which has me itching for more information about this part of Schellhardt family history. Mainly, how did they get the dogs to New York City? And then that question leads to – what kind of car did Max and Anna have? It’s amazing how one question leads to another and that leads to another and another!
Anyway, in lieu of answers, I’ll just share this picture of Max and his dogs with you!
Can anyone name these dogs?
