Hi Carol, today makes exactly a year since we've had Precious.  June 11th was on Sunday last year.  Well her physical went well.  She weighs 13.5 lbs.  I was told to cut back on the feeding.  The vet said that you should be able to feel the ribs of a dog, but she feels fat... I noticed her tummy getting big, but I just thought most dogs gain weight once they are spayed.  She said to cut back the portion and if she is still hungry give her some fruit.  Precious didn't make one sound when they gave her the shots.  The receptionist kept carrying her around, she always get compliments when she is out.  I feel so proud, because she is well behaved and they don't have to muzzle her like the other dogs.  She doesn't even bark and she isn't nervous.  But one thing is for sure, she keeps a watchful eye on me while everyone is passing her around.  It's so funny how we (the dog owners/parents) sit and talk about our dogs like they are children.  I must say it was alot of hard work and I commend you as a breeder, but this is it for me.  It was all worth the sleepless nights and accidents, because she turned out to be a joy not only to my family and friends, but anyone that comes around her.  I also like the fact that she is not a common dog that most people have.  They either have Shitzu's, Bishon, Maltese, poodles, yorkies.  All of which I considered, but once I read about each of them nothing could top the cockapoo.  We are happy with her and she seems to be very hapyy with us as well.  Once again.  Thank you.  Enjoy the summer and I will keep in touch.   Kenyetta

Dear Carol,

I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you.  Thank you for the love and care you put into bringing these wonderful dogs into peoples lives.  We picked up Snickers in July of last year <2001> and brought him back to Minnesota.  We waited 10 years to bring a dog into our home.  This dog is happy, healthy sweet and very smart.  We just wanted to send you a thank you and a picture of him.  We will write soon.

Dear Carol,
We were all sitting around this morning, sipping coffee and talking about how lucky we are to have Boo.  Then I was asked if I had talked to you lately, and then I was told to e-mail you once again and give you thanks for such an incredible dog.  He really is, Carol, always finding some new way to express his intelligence and overall personality.  Not only does he know a full bag of tricks, a few of which he taught us, but he "sings" to harmonica blues-playing as well, and we have WAVs to prove it!

As you can see, he has long since captured our family, and has become the reason #2 of why we wanted another Cockapoo.  So thanks, Carol.  We will always remember you, the unique way we got Boo, and what a truly special dog he is.  You called him "a little box of a dog", but he has many more dimensions than mere physical ones.  And besides, he is absolutely adorable-looking!

Enclosed is a recent picture of Boo just prior to a grooming.

Notice the Lambchop-colored hair that has developed around his nose.  We put the "software hat and eye-patch" on him because it fit the "non-groomed"- look.  Enjoy, and hope all goes well for you and yours.  Thanks again, Carol...

Hi again, Carol,
Attached is a list of Boo tricks.  Most of these were learned over a two-month period from Michelle Durrant, a local trainer, but I've managed to get him to do a couple of things myself.  Michelle was incredibly good with Boo, and every time he gets around her now, he turns into silly putty.  He just adores her.  Obviously her training techniques are reward-based.

She moved to Wyoming a little while ago but is back now and setting up shop at Petsmart, the local one-stop pet store.  She's asked me to bring Boo to her classes as a demonstration of what a dog can learn, and I get to continue his "education" for free.  She said something about clicker-training him, but we'll see.  But she was as amazed as we over how quickly he picked up behaviors, and called him a "trick dog."  Like I said, we are so lucky to have him for these and other reasons.

Carol, Boo will probably be our last dog, but if we ever want another 'poo for any reason, you know we will be begging at your door again.  I would love to have a second right now, but my folks wouldn't be able to handle two.  So Boo alone it will have to be.  Me?  I would love to have more than two, especially if they were all Lambchop's, but it's just not possible.  But we have Dr. Boo, M.D., Ph.D., D.O.G., e.t.c.  We call him this because of the joyous, therapeutic effects he brings to our family.  God definitely saved us "the best for last."  Right now, Boo is lying at my feet, waiting for me to get through with this, so we can play some more.  :)

Thanks again, Carol, and if you'll tell us your birthday, I'll be sure Boo "sings" you a "Happy Birthday" WAV through e-mail.  You are the best!!!

Boo Tricks

1.   Come

2.   Sit

3.   Stay

4.   Leave It (Waits for a signal before eating the treat I placed in front of him.  Also works more definitively with other things we don't want him to touch.)

5.   Heel (follow)

6.   Around and Sit (He circles behind me and sits to my left.)

7.   Shake hands (Also "Gimme Five.")

8.   Walk (On his hind legs)

9.   Twirl (Also on his hind legs)

10.  Up (On my leg.  No, not like that… LOL)

11.  Down (Into the belly-down position)

12.  Off (of something)

13.  Crawl (He actually crawls on his belly - too funny.)

14.  Roll Over

15.  Say "Hello" (He puts his head on your leg and looks up with his big, brown eyes.)

16.  Sit Up

17.  Play the piano (Pumps his front paws up and down while sitting or standing.  "Good Golly Miss Molly.")

18.  Wait (Stays behind a hand-defined line.)

19.& /nbsp; Turn Loose (my underwear or Dad's handkerchief or anything else he may have snagged… LOL)

20.  Jump (through a hoop made by encircling your arms.  This is the simplest trick but wows people the most for some reason.)

21.  Perch (on his favorite chair or any other place I direct him.  He's our little blackbird at times.)

22.  Back Up (beep, beep, beep…)

23.  Catch the ring (He catches a plantation-rubber ring flipped at him end-over-end.  This is the most amazing thing he does because he catches it while it's flipping really fast.  Murphy was the only other dog we've ever seen do this.)

Dear Carol,
It's hard to believe that 1 year ago last week, we picked up our boy Toby (Becky X Kandi Man).  He has turned into one great little dog.  Of course, I know everybody thinks they have the "best dog", but in my case, I do.

He has learned a lot over the past year.  He went to puppy kindergarten, and 1st grade, and has mastered the "sit", "stay", and "come" commands.  He also does several tricks.

He has become a part of our family, and it now is difficult to remember what life was like out without him.

I hope all is well with you and your family.  I check your web site frequently just to see your cute dogs.

I'm so thankful that we found you.  You raise wonderful pups, with great parents.  I am sure that is why we have such a great dog.

Thanks again!  A few attached pics.

Hi Carol.  I hope you had a good weekend.  I see you had an open house.  I wish I could have been there.

I'm sending you some pictures that were taken of Rylee this weekend at our NADAC Agility Trial.  I am so proud of this little girl.  I'm just busting with pride.  She did good.  If you read the email I sent the <Cockapoo_>SOB group it gives you some info of the weekend.  Here are the pictures.  She runs at 12 inches.  Look how high she jumps over the 12 inch jump.  What a great little girl I got from you.  She is just the greatest.

Good Morning Carol,

Maddie is definitely a "Mulberry Farm wonder dog"!  I can't even say that she is "adjusting" to the crate because there has not been one problem.  She has slept through the night since we brought her home!!!  She has the best disposition  -  we have cleaned her ears, bathed her and brush her regularly and all without a single bite, bark or cry.  She is an absolute joy and she is so darn cute.  Oh, I definitely think you are doing more than something right up at your farm.  Maddie is wonderful and as Tom says, "she is ridiculously cute".  We are constantly stopped by people who just swear that she is the cutest dog that they have ever seen in their lives (HOLY OBVIOUS!!!)(joking).  I tell them it's all because she is a Mulberry Farm puppy!!  You were 100% right  -  Maddie was definitely worth the wait.
I hope all is well with you and Jim.
Keep Cool, it's hot out there.

Hi Carol,
Yesterday was Chandler's first birthday and I just wanted to write you and tell you how much we love having him in our lives.  He is just the sweetest boy and we are enjoying every minute we spend with him.
Thanks again,

comments: Dear Carol,

We purchased one of your puppies that was born on September 14, 2001.  You may remember us as the family that would not leave unless we left holding a dog.  We spent the entire day at the farm.  We thought it would be nice to write you and tell you how our little Lucy has been doing.  We love her with all our heart, she is very smart, she catches frisbees, and she weighs about 17 pounds, and is very healthy.  She is very beautiful (reminder: she had a sable and white coat) and we get compliments on her all the time.  We still want to send you a picture but we have been very lax.  We would love another one but since we already have zoo with two kittys, a fish and a turtle we have wait.  We enjoyed your website.  Thanks again for giving us a great dog.

Dan, Sharyn, and Allie Antico

P.S.- Lucy says hey too!

Sent from the Internet (Details)

You're right!  Lots of people have seen him, and everyone thinks he is absolutely spectacular!  I've had at least a half dozen people ask me where you "get an Augie", and I give them your website.

The vet said he is very healthy.  She checked for worms, (none), gave him the next DHPP shot and {prophylactic} nose drops for Kennel Cough (at least I'm pretty sure the nose drops were for Kennel Cough).  She also gave {Augie} a dose of something {...else, prophylactic} based on his weight for ticks and fleas, as well as a teeny tiny heartworm pill which he ate with his dinner.  We have to go back in 3 weeks for his next shots, plus we discussed the deer situation here and she indicated she could give him a shot for Lymes Disease, as a safety measure.  She also indicated she could only feel one testicle, which is not uncommon at his age.  The assistants at the vet were "ooohing" and "ahhhing" over him the entire time he was there.

Last night, friends of mine were here, and they thought he was adorable.  My friend Michael took digital pictures of him which I can send you once he sends them to me.  He said he will crop them to get the best closeup shots.  He also indicated, the pictures can be downloaded to a diskette and taken to a photo shop where they can turn them into real pictures.

Do you have any suggestions in terms of working with him regarding his desire to chew my hands and toes, etc.?  He's very good most of the time, but seems to have sudden "spontaneous cravings" where he does not want his toys or rawhide [rawhide is *NOT* recommended by the breeder], only something more fleshy, like me.
