| The reunion was held on Sunday, October 5th under (miraculously!) sunny skies and mild temperatures. Over 100 Mulberry Farm "family members" and their puppies & dogs attended the get-together. The first guests arrived shortly after 10:30 a.m., and the last departed around 6:00 p.m. Cars were directed to the open back field to park in an orderly fashion. The field was quickly filled, forcing parts of the driveway and the yard between the barn and the kennel to double as parking areas.
People who attended the reunion brought picnic lunches and/or contributed all sorts of foods to the open buffet.
Folks leisurely dined on the offerings and sipped sodas or coffee while proudly exchanging stories about their dogs' achievements and escapades. Despite this large, busy crowd of people milling around the front yard, driveway and side field, every cockapoo was at his or her best behavior, and was anxious to play with all the other dogs and humans.
The owners were also rather well behaved!
| All of this activity made it quite difficult for the webmaster to get many good, candid pictures of the people and dogs who attended this reunion! Hence, it would be greatly appreciated if those of you who took pictures at the reunion would contribute at least a few of your pictures either by E-mail (if they're digital pictures) or by mailing the negatives "on loan" to the webmaster at the address located near the top of the website screen. Thanks in advance! And to everyone who attended this first reunion... yes, we are planning to have another reunion next year, but probably earlier in the year.
