Lacy is such an awesome puppy! She has the most calm temperament for a pup. My husband calls her Lazy instead of Lacy lol. She is starting to get more spunky in the last couple days as she gets more comfortable here. She is bonding really good with me 😊 oh and the family 😜. She is my baby though! It snowed here last week, she LOVED THE SNOW!! It was so funny watching her get all excited playing in the snow. She knows it, stay, down, and come already, she is so easy to teach. Her potty training is going great to, she already goes to the door. She is the easiest puppy, I'm sure she will have her moments esp as she gets to the teen stage, but for now I'm really having the easiest time with her! Thank you so much for choosing us for your list, we couldn't be happier!

Mochi has been great! She is very smart with a lot of personality. She has been very good at night letting us sleep for 4 hours! Mango is very gentle with her and very protective, it's amazing to watch. The kids have been great trying to train her and they really enjoy playing with her.
Thanks a lot Sherri!!! Have a great weekend.

I thought you might like a recent shot of our almost 10 year old Lucy, daughter of Ruby and Tuff. I really can't thank you enough for the amount of awesome Lucy has brought to our family! People can't believe she is almost 10, her energy is that of a 2 year old! With the exception of some morning stiffness and a few fatty lumps, Lucy is doing well. However, she is a bit depressed since losing her BFF Jett. We rescued Jett (a lab/hound dog) when Lucy was 2. Please let me know if you have an older companion available. We thought of rescuing and older dog but thought Mirage Labs would be a better choice knowing the love and care you give all your dogs.
Thank you again for our sausage Lucy!

had the absolute joy of first emailing, then speaking on the phone, and finally meeting Sherri during the process of bringing home my new little love, Tesla. I contacted Sherri many months before a litter was even planned, as I was looking to get the first pick of the litter. She answers immediately and graciously. She and I had very many email conversations back and forth and she put me on the list for first pick....which is exactly what I got!!! Now let me tell you what an experience that was! All I can say is Sherri is a saint! I had such a difficult time picking a baby to bring home. It was more emotional and challenging than I expected, and Sherri basically held my hand through the whole process and patiently awaited my decision. She has made herself totally approachable, professional, and timely throughout the entire 11 month process, as it was for me from getting on the list, to bringing Tesla home. Now as far as my baby goes...she is just simply wonderful! All of the puppies in this litter were good looking, healthy puppies. And it is evident from the vast number of Labradors Sherri and her family care for, that they LOVE these dogs and this breed! I would recommend a prospective buyer to Sherri anyday!!

Our experience with Mirage Labradors has been great. We have now used Mirage Labrador Stud Services a few times and plan to for years to come. I'm new at breeding labs and contacted Sherri, she gave very helpful advice and tips. Sherri is very pleasant to do business with. She gives great care during boarding as well !
I would highly recommend using Mirage Labradors for Stud Services !!
Thanks again Sherri

Sherri and Travis,
Thanks a bunch for having us over yesterday. We are so grateful to have one of your pups, your love for your dogs is wonderful and that's the kind breeder we wanted to get a pup from. This has been such an exciting experience, waiting for Lacy to be born and seeing her grow week to week. Thank you for making this such a positive fun experience! See you in a few weeks for the much anticipated day of bringing Lacy home!

Steven, Bonnie and I are doing well up here in Elko! Bonnie has been doing great for the most part with some mischief here or there; her favorite things to do are play, play and play, eat, sleep and to give lots of kisses! She's very sweet :). Thank you for the birthday wishes for Bonnie, that was awesome! Have a wonderful holiday!!!

Thank you so much Sherri, we have had quite a year with Tucker, and we have enjoyed every moment!!! He is now a full-fledged year old and beautiful and yes, we did have a party for him.
This is just one of tons of pictures we've taken of Tucker. And believe you me this picture does not do justice. Sherri,Travis and girls,he is a beauty! We get compliments on him constantly from people he's met along the way to his first birthday. He loves everybody, and they love him! He is the love of the neighborhood. We have neighborhood children that come and knock on our door to ask if Tucker "can come out and play".This picture however, is our grandchildren with him at one of their Soccer games. They are hoping at some point along the way, to get one like him. They are crazy about Tucker. He has made a ton of dog friends as well that he plays with in our local park when we take him.
We could go on and on and on about our Tucker but I will stop here except to say, we would at some point this spring or summer, love to get Tucker's siblings together once again, for a day maybe, at one of the local parks here in Reno or wherever to share stories of them, the difference they have all made in our lives and just have a day of celebrating life and the love we share with our pups and you, Sherri,Travis and girls have made this all possible for all.
Sherri, if you would please pass this along to the others that have one of Tucker's siblings it would be wonderful and thanks once again for a most wonderful gift of life you have shared with us all.
Dick and Dee Zunino and of course, Tucker
