Here is an excerpt from an email received today 3/25/12 which shows the results of following the advice of the previous post:
I hope all is well. As you can see we decided on a name--Ollie (or Oliver as his grandma likes :))
He is doing so well, we are really impressed. We took him to the vet on Friday and he was perfect!
The first night he didn't like sleeping in the crate and cried for about 20 minutes like you said he may. Then every night after that he goes in it and sleeps for 7-8 hours soundly. It's wonderful. He also has learned to go near the door when he needs to pee.
He is very loved by all our family members. We could not ask for a better dog. We want to thank you for your help and raising him so well. Attached are two pictures of him. Tell your kids they did a great job with him!
That is what we are shooting for here at Adirondack Labradoodle. Healthy puppies and happy owners! Pure joy!!
